Holden Statesman Q&As

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

  • Why is there a leak in my 1998 Holden Statesman?

    This is a very common complaint among owners of Holdens of this era. If you’ve checked all the likely places for water to enter, then you have to start thinking laterally. Does the car have an aftermarket of dealer-fitted rear spoiler? The mounting holes of these can be great places for water to enter the boot. But believe it or not, this series of full-sized Holdens was also susceptible to a manufacturing glitch where the rear quarter-light windows weren’t sealed properly. Water can, apparently, enter here and find it’s way into the boot. It sounds crazy, but I’m assured it’s a thing with these cars.

  • Mazda 8 - Could Mazda build a Commodore or Statesman-sized sedan?

    The short answer is no, as the Mazda6 has never sold to expectations and all the action in the luxury sphere is in SUVs or crossovers.

    However, with Mazda heading into the premium space and in model-sharing activities with arch-rival Toyota, a 6-style sedan based on the mooted coming, rear-drive and inline six-cylinder powered CX-5 replacement is expected, possibly to be shared with a Toyota or Lexus model. These are pure rumours right now, but a possible scenario as Mazda attempts to amortise the development and engineering costs of its next-generation architectures.

    But we don't believe a sedan or wagon larger than a Mazda6 would be part of these future plans – not in the foreseeable future, anyway.

  • Why won't the engine in my 2006 Holden Statesman start?

    When you say you tried another battery, was that second battery charged up, and what’s it’s condition. Even a brand-new battery fresh from the shelf of a parts store can be low on charge and may need a few hours on a charger before it’s ready to start a car, especially one with a large engine like a Holden Statesman. If the battery was just another one you borrowed from somewhere else, it could well be about as worn out as the one you replaced. Even a battery that shows 12 volts when you test it with a voltmeter, can suddenly drop its bundle when you place it under load (such as trying to start a car with it). You need to check the battery’s current while it’s attempting to turn the engine over.

    Other possibilities could be worn out battery leads (do they get hot when you try to start the car?) a poor earth somewhere between the engine and the car’s chassis or even battery terminals that are old and crusty. Don’t rule out a failed starter motor, either. Often a worn-out starter can pole out internally, causing a huge internal short that will produce the same slow cranking we associate with a dying battery.

  • What mid-sized SUV should I buy?

    Moving out of a Statesman you will probably want some luxury, so that's definitely not a Captiva. I'd suggest you test drive a CX-5 and a Subaru Forester, both of which get The Tick, and choose between them.
