Holden Cars
« on: August 22, 2014, 10:03:13 am »
Hi Guys!

Could some one please tell me a bit about Holden cars, I see a few cars by Holden which looks like the opel corsa's here in South Africa. Then they have the captiva which seems like the Chev Captiva here?

Is holden a brand of GM (because here in SA Chev, Opel and Isuzu are GM)?

What is the general feeling of Holden in NZ in terms of quality, spares availability and maintenance affordability?

Thanks in advance!

It's the same cars as what you mentioned. they also have models here that you would not have seen in RSA.  No issues with them, spares available everywhere, dealerships all over. Toyota is big here as well.

Yes Holden is the GM brand in Aus/NZ.
It covers a fair few Opel/Chev models. The model names are not the same though.
