The October edition asked whether the German invader is worthy of the Commodore badge. My first Holden, the VK, was one of the best cars Iíve ever owned, costing me virtually nothing for four years.

Then, because Iíd just got a job that paid me an untaxed car allowance, my accountant told me I needed to get a new car or Iíd be paying back-tax. What was on offer? The new Holden VN, the worst car Iíve ever owned.

So letís wipe up the crocodile tears and hope that the imports can do a bit better.
