Exclamation Commodore RS 2019 $25990 Wagon $26,990 drive away

Bartons Holden Capalaba have 100 to sell at those prices !! all have less than 7k/kms on the clock. Resale value on the Commodores is really bad. That's $15k off rrp. But if you want a cheap car, a bargain.

@ the end of the day,who cares about resale(or depreciation @ this price.) If you are keeping the vehicle for any length of time,that should not even come in to it.I never look OR care about it.Cars are not meant to appreciate.If you want to make money,go & buy realestate.

Well the forum is a bit quiet these days now the Falcon and Territory are also gone

I find it hard to get excited about any of the imports, no matter what badge they wear.

These cars are second hand btw!



And yes for what they are they are super cheap. Good cars with plenty of power and nice fuel economy. I wish i had bought one instead of the Mondeo as I find the diesel a bit slow at times.

Now that Opel is owned by PSA, who is making the Commode?
Are they still buying them from Opel, or will they be made in Korea?

Sound like ex rentals. Great cars, 9 speed auto 2.0 turbo hammers and gets great economy - makes the diesel version redundant.

I'd say Commodore is done after this generation. We'll likely see a "ZC" facelift then that will be it... (lack of sales aren't helping of course)

GM has canned the Buick LaCrosse (except in China) and the Chevy Malibu will reportedly not be replaced in 2024. These would have been the 2 most likely cars to take over.

That's a very good price! IIRC the Astra was going at about 16 for a while, Euro made, great looking hatch, ripper deal too.

The way the market has shifted to SUV's, Acadia is of note too, same 3.6 motor, US built, a bit of Americana here in Oz. Against it is the East-West positioning of the motor in 2wd creating wheelspin/torquesteer (you can manually select 4wd on the AWD versions) - but for the pricing, etc, it's at the Territory price point with some of the functionality ride/handling without the brilliant drivetrain.

And what Raptor said, it's hard to get enthusiastic about any of the imports, it's more like being disinterested. So holds onto cash.

So would this be a fleet deal gone bad or something ?

Seems odd for 100 to come up with less than 7000km on them.

maybe they are the ex NZ police vehicles, they had to "redistribute" them due to lack of headroom for the safety of criminal

The NZ ZB liftbacks have been retained and moved into other policing roles where they were not expected to take passengers in the rear seats, these have been replaced with ZB Wagons which has in effect increased (not decreased) their fleet of ZB's by about 370……

agreed, the only chance is if it comes out of china, or Korea, but as you say the Malibu has a bleak outlook too

Most likely Holden turning over / dumping their internal fleet
it's a great price for a nice car that doesn't deserve this tarnished rep.

For the money they are great cars (not rrp) I test drove a vrx today and to be honest, I was gobsmacked how good of a car they are. Heaps of demo Holden management vrx's out there for around 42k. It's a lot of car for the money and am seriously thinking of getting one.

It's a car you have to actually drive before forming an opinion of it.

Most of the people that dislike them seem to do so on principle because we stopped making cars here.

I can relate to that. I've owned an AU XR8 200 and a VE SS, and if I could find one with less than 20,000 kms for around $20k so I had some money left over to compensate for lack of warranty I'd buy it.

But the other way of looking at it is that if you want a near new car with around 190 KW and a decent warranty for around $27k then what else is there?

So a lot of people probably don't buy them because its their dream car, but just because they are cheap for what they are, and at the end of the day not a bad thing, even if not a great thing.
