Garry tells us about his 2005 V8/4×4 Holden Adventra.
I wanted a head turning car and being a Holden fan through and through it was an easy decision to buy a Holden Adventra.
It has proven a great vehicle to tow our trailbikes/trailer and the big V8 Holden has now racked up more than 160,000km.
I went with the V8 engine as I figured this was going to be a car that Holden wouldn’t be offering for too long, I mean a 4×4 Commodore – what a classic!
It’s been a great car. Most of the trips we make are long country drives and this is the ideal vehicle for that. I average about 14 litre per 100 kilometres on the highway in the Adventra and I reckon that’s pretty good.
The interior is comfortable and holding up well, the rubber floor mats get a bit of use and I have had all-terrain tyres fitted to the 17 inch wheels and these help us get the Commo into someone pretty wild country.
Everything still works, my only complaint is that there isn’t a new Adventura that I can buy today! Yep, it turns heads too, even ten years on!
