Holden Barina 2007: Rocker gasket leaks oil

Answered by CarsGuide 5 May 2017

Those early Barinas were prone to oil leaks. I guess that you have had it repaired before, but without success. If it's fixed properly it shouldn't leak, but it could be that it needs a better sealant, or the surface of the rocker cover might need machining flat.

Holden Barina 2007: Stalling and losing revs?

Answered by CarsGuide 15 Jan 2016

The relative complexity of today’s cars means that sometimes things happen that are difficult to explain, particularly if error codes aren’t showing up. It’s then a question of changing things until the cause is found, which it seems is what the dealer is doing.

Holden Barina 2007: Good first car for p-plater?

Answered by CarsGuide 1 May 2015

You're right to be concerned about the safety of the 2007 Barina, it only had front airbags and ANCAP rated it only two stars. Side front airbags weren't made standard until November 2008, after which it was given a four-star rating. You would be much better off going for the later, safer, model. I also agree with your thinking about having him drive a manual, that way he'll be a more capable driver. Based on your assessment of the condition of the car you're considering it would be worth around $4500.
