Holden Commodore 2012 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Holden Commodore 2012 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Why is my 2012 Commodore V6 stalling when turning left around corners?
In the old days I might have said it was due to fuel surge, but that doesn’t happen with fuel injection. It could perhaps be a connection in the wiring that is separating when the car swings to the left. It needs investigation.
Holden Commodore: Cooling package for towing?
If you're towing on the flat and not overloading the transmission you might get away without upgrading to the cooling package, but if your short distances include hills you should upgrade it. If you don't you're putting the transmission at risk of overheating and being damaged.
Holden parts availability after factory closure
I wouldn't be concerned about it. No doubt parts makers will be under pressure to survive with Holden and Ford stopping local production, but there will be a stock of parts retained by Holden in the medium term at least, and other companies will step into the breach if the current parts suppliers do fall over. With so many Commodores made there will be an on-going demand for replacement parts that will have to be met.
Holden Commodore: Engine rattle
The cold-start rattle seems to be something that Holden V8 owners must accept as part and parcel of the engine.
Holden Commodore 2012 Towing capacity
The Holden Commodore’s towing capacity ranges from 1600kg to 2100kg. Some models also offer heavy-duty or towing option packs which can increase towing capacity, as well as options which can hamper towing capacity. Towing capacities can vary wildly on a large number of factors. These include engine, transmission, model, and options chosen. Always check with the manufacturer or in your vehicles handbook before attempting to tow anything.
