Holden Viva Q&As

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

  • 2007 Viva or 2002 Falcon?

    They are very different cars, the Viva is small, the Falcon big, so it comes down to what you want from them. The Viva is newer and will have done fewer kilometres, the Falcon is getting old and is likely to have done lots of kilometres. That said, Falcons tend to be relatively reliable at high kilometres, so if you are after reliability that's probably the better bet for you.

  • Reliability of Viva timing belts or chains?

    Regardless of the engine work, the Viva is not a good car. For similar money, in a small wagon, I'd go every time for a Mitsubishi Lancer.

  • Holden Viva opinion

    I couldn't recommend the Viva. It was made by Daewoo in Korea and rushed to Australia to plug holes in Holden's model line-up and the market shifted away from traditional big cars. Owners mostly slam it for its unreliability and problems with electrics and transmission. I would urge you to consider a small model from one of the Japanese manufacturers, or a later model from Hyundai or Kia.

  • 2008 Holden Viva automatic stalling

    It could be a vacuum leak, a split vacuum hose or the like, that's causing the idle mixture to be too lean. It could also be a sensor that's gone on the blink and sending the wrong signals to the computer. You really need to have a mechanic check it for you.
