Holden Commodore: VT buying guide
The biggest issue you're fighting with the VT is age. No matter what way you look at it, it's an old car and every car has problems with age. So the first thing to say is that you should shop around, and take your time to find the best car you can for the money you have to spend. Basically the VT is quite durable and standing up well over the long term. With the VT the 3.8-litre V6 engine is a pretty tough old nail and won't give you much trouble if it has been serviced properly with regular oil changes. Listen for rattling on start-up or smoke on acceleration. Inspect it for oil leaks, they can be expensive to repair. The auto transmission is generally ok, but might need a service if it's done a lot of kays. They can have trouble with fuel pumps and the suspension bushes wear-out, but they're relatively minor things that won't cost a lot to fix.
