In April this year my husband got a phone call saying his dad ( who lives up far in qld, us nsw), had had a stroke. Immediately we made plans to head up. Not knowing how reliable our recently purchased VT commodore was we borrowed a friends 4wd, who dad it could make it anywhere. We got 300kms away when the gear box in the 4wd blew up. Our friend brought our car to us nsw& we all got home but their 4wd stranded. Then the next day going to my mums the engine in the VT commodore blew up. Now we are driving my good old trusty VL commodore that’s nearly 30 years old, she’s got a few problems but what a good car!!! To round up 2 new broken cars plus 2 times tow truck fees. No trip to qld yet cause of this year& the old car back. I hate cars lol.
