HSV GTS Problems
No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the HSV GTS reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.
Screen crack on HSV GTS
The warranty that came with the car covers the whole car, not just the HSV-specific parts. Talk to your dealer, who I'm sure will be both an HSV dealer and a Holden dealer, he should be able to repair the sat-nav screen and send the bill to either HSV or Holden, in this case it should be Holden.
HSV GTS Software fault
Clearly it is frustrating, but you are doing the right thing in insisting the car be fixed. I would suggest you meet with the dealer and try and sort it out face to face rather than by phone, e-mail or any other remote means of communication. Don't be fobbed off with a junior member of staff, talk to the dealer manager. If that doesn't result in a resolution, go up the ladder to Holden and again seek to talk to a senior manager. If all else fails enlist the help of a lawyer.
VE GTS value increase?
I don’t believe it will increase in value in the short to medium term, in fact it will probably drop in value, but because of its relative rarity it could increase in value over the long term. If you plan to keep it in the hope it does I would use it sparingly, service it regularly, and keep it covered even when garaged.
HSV GTS daily driver?
That's fantastic news, as everyone should enjoy driving — but you don't say how many points you have on your licence.
Is the VS HSV GTS a good investment
It's not possible to say for sure, but the HSV GTS has the sort of credentials needed to become collectible one day. It was a limited edition, had a factory-modified Holden V8 motor with heaps of grunt, and looked the part with a nice body kit and neat interior. How fast it might climb in value is anybody's guess, that's determined by the market, which has been flat for a year or two and will probably remain so while buyers are cautious about spending their money in these financially troubled times. Same goes for the value it might achieve.
Used HSV GTS 215i review: 1994-1995
It seems puny today, but in 1994 when HSV unleashed its 215 kW GTS it was one of the most powerful cars on the road. Today, even the most mundane family hack has close to 200 kW under the bonnet, ...Read More
THE car's VIN will tell you whether it is a GTS, so check your car's build plate. Because you bought the car new, there is no chance the plate will be false. If the console lid has Clubsport on it instead of the correct badge, go back to HSV and arrange for the correct part to be supplied. It might have supplied the incorrect part because that was the only one it had in stock. The GTS was built in small numbers so it's possible that parts are not readily available. Dealers are reluctant to trade your car probably because they know it will be hard to move, not because they doubt its authenticity.
