VE Commodore: Repair prices may crash
Faster and easier labour times may mean lower repair costs for VE
31 Jul 2006
HOLDEN claims the VE Commodore may be cheaper to repair than the VZ in some instances, based largely on its belief that the vehicle’s new front-end module can be removed quickly and efficiently. Expected labour savings are in the vicinity of 50 per cent.
"Labour costs are about halved," Holden’s exterior systems manager Emmanuel Vlontakis claimed.
The module is an all-in-one unit housing the headlights, horn, fans module, airbag sensors, and aluminium bumper beam, among other things, with each item able to be removed or replaced separately.
