Car reviews - Holden - Statesman - Caprice V8 sedan
8 Jan 2002
CONTROLS are basically the same as regular Commodores, but supplemented with such features as auto-dipping internal rearview mirror and a flip-down driver's side mirror that automatically adjusts for better viewing when reversing. Variable intermittent road speed sensitive wipers are standard, as is the analogue clock, automatic headlamps-on control at twilight, plus headlamps auto off after leaving the parked car. The trip computer includes average speed, odometer, average economy on a trip, elapsed trip time, trip distance and fuel used on the trip. It also shows distance to empty, remaining fuel, instant economy and time to go. Also standard is an audible and visual speed warning with four adjustable settings. A priority key for two people automatically restores - when unlocking the car - settings for climate control, sound system, trip computer, speed alert, transmission power/economy mode, instrument dimmer, antenna height and headlamps-off time delay. It also restores the preferred driver's seat and exterior mirrors positions.

Did you know?The Holden lion emblem appeared on all Holdens built from 1928 to 1939. Thereafter, the design was adopted as a trademark in all Holden advertising, and although modified, is still used on all Holden vehicles today
