Holden's South-Korean-sourced product has not been without the odd quality concern, and the Trax is no different, though by no means the worst offender.
The Trax has been recalled by Holden a couple of times, the first time for a potential fault with the seat-belt pretensioning system which had and obvious safety implication.
The good news is that this particular recall involved only eight cars, and a Holden dealer will be able to identify an affected one if you have any doubts about a particular example.
The second recall fell under the bizarre heading: Some Traxes had a flaw in the ignition barrel that could see the car mysteriously crank its own starter motor even when nobody was in the car.
If the car was a manual, was in gear and the park-brake was not properly applied, the starter motor had enough power to actually make the car move, potentially until it hit something immovable.
Occurrences are few and far between, but they have been recorded, so it would be wise to check whether a potential purchase was one of the affected Traxes and whether it's been fixed with a replacement ignition barrel.
The Trax was also recalled to check the wiring harness for the electric power-steering which could, in some cases, become disconnected.
If that happened, the car could still be steered but would require much more effort from the driver.
Like many modern cars, automatic transmission problems are not unknown for creating problems for Trax owners.
Any sign of flaring between gears, failure to select gears or a loss of drive suggest serious transmission problems.
The Trax has also annoyed its owners with paint on the bonnet and roof flaking or peeling off very early in the car's life.
So check carefully the condition of the paint on all horizontal surfaces.
The Trax was also caught up in the Takata air-bag saga, so make sure any potential buy has been checked and had its dodgy air-bags replaced.
If not, don't buy it. In fact, don't even test-drive it.
