Holden Commodore VE Omega: We have a Holden Omega 2007 model.

Customer Question

We have a Holden Omega 2007 model. It is in great condition both inside and out and it was an economic repairable write off so it was in a collision but you honestly couldn't tell by the look or the feel of it. If it helps it is a 6 cylinder engine, with VIN 6G1EK52B48L113255 and is formally a 2007 Holden Commodore VE Omega. It is a petrol car. My question is that the odometer is sitting at about 233800km. It passed a safety inspection after failing the first one the day before. The service brake test was 75% on the pass and the hand brake test failed first go, passed second go. I am getting the car in for a full service tomorrow, it's last service was about 10 months ago, my end question is: what is the average lifetime of this car? How many km do you think I will get on the odometer before the car reaches the end of its life? It also has a PedalBox Throttle Control Unit installed.

Hello Kyle,VE is a good car, timing chains are common.I've seen cars in the 350xxx zone still going well.The handbrake won't do emergency stops well, type of design.Probably needed adjustment at time of inspection.Gary
