Holden Calais 2006 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Holden Calais 2006 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • How much is a used 2006 Holden Calais worth?

    The prices of second-hand cars have sky-rocketed recently due to a lack of supply. People are simply not selling their old cars at the usual rate (as trade-ins and private sales) so the laws of supply and demand apply. That is; more demand plus less supply equals higher prices. This phenomenon has been most strongly felt in the case of locally-made Holdens and Fords, perhaps because of nostalgia and the `they don’t make ‘em any more’ factor. Either way, it’s true that the second-hand Holden Calais that cost $6000 this time last year can be worth almost double that now.

    With just 120,000km showing, your car is a relatively low-mileage example and the fact that it’s a V8 is good news. Beyond that, however, you haven’t given me much to go on. For a start, 2006 was a change-over year for Holden models; the VZ left showrooms and the new VE model entered. The difference between a VZ and VE in price is significant, particularly in V8 form. I’d also need to know whether your car is a Calais V. All those things have a bearing on value.

    For the record, though, a VE Calais sedan in good condition with similar kilometres to yours would probably be advertised for around the $14,000 mark or even more. And that’s almost twice what it was worth just a year ago.

  • Why is water coming into the passenger side of my 2006 Holden Calais?

    The prime suspect for this is a blocked vent that normally funnels condensation from the air-conditioning system to the outside of the car. If this vent becomes blocked or split, the condensation can enter the cabin. Other possibilities include a damaged heater matrix which can leak coolant into the cabin or a sunroof with blocked drainage channels that can also leak into the vehicle.

  • VE Holden Calais won't start

    There was a problem with the early Calais and there was a software fix developed to take care of it. It wouldn't have been a sudden loss of battery charge, but a steady drain that would ultimately mean there wasn't sufficient charge to start the car. I would have expected the fix to be automatically installed in your car when it went to the dealer for its regular servicing. It certainly should have been if you had complained about the previous times the battery went flat.

    It could be that you’re driving on the point of torque convertor lock-up, change your speed when it happens.
