Oh, and I wasn't disagreeing with you either. That's why I said that even the C5's I had were still Chevy's at the end of the day, and since that Holden is a high performance Catera...Kaz said:
I don't disagree that bringing Holdens (especially the HSV varieties) to the US is a good, and long-neglected idea. I chalked it up to plain GM stupidity when I first learned that GM made a Catera with a Z28 drivetrain and didn't sell it here. I was just trying to say that I wouldn't expect some magical all-around piece of work, since Holden quality is unknown in the US.
FWIW, my family owns 1 Japan-made, 1 Australia-made and 2 US made Mitsubishis (now 1 since I sold my Galant), and the Aussie car squarely falls in between the others in terms of quality/reliability.
Anyway, @ 30K, I'm pretty sure that whatever it delivers is going to be more than one would expect... :thumb:
