Answered by CarsGuide 5 Feb 2016

It's an electrical or electronic fault that's causing your car to go into the default limp home mode. It's not possible to say exactly what is wrong, do that you need to take the car to a mechanic and have them diagnose the problem on their equipment.

Holden Barina 2006: Cracked head

Answered by CarsGuide 13 Dec 2013

No. It ran perfectly for five or six years before giving trouble, so I don't think you can blame Holden. Has the coolant been changed in the time since it left the factory, has it been overheated at any time, they're questions I would want answered before trying to find someone to blame.

Holden Barina 2006: ABS unnecessary?

Answered by CarsGuide 5 Mar 2010

The advice you have received from your mechanic is bad; ABS is an important safety system and should be repaired to proper working order as soon as possible. Definitely do not have it disconnected. A regular mechanic should be able to find the fault and repair it, but I would recommend you take it to a Holden dealer, despite your fears about the cost.
