Moved to Forum: Original Link

Important stuff from the link

The Holden Trax city SUV is almost half price, with discounts ranging from $10,000 to $11,000, bringing this $23,990 model to the bargain price of about $13,000

The mid-size Holden Equinox is also a flat rate $10,750 off, or about a third off the price of the base model, bringing it from a bit over $30,000 drive-away to close to $20,000 drive-away.

The Holden Acadia seven-seat family SUV is between $11,500 and $17,000 off, between a quarter and one-third off the price of the car.

The cheapest discount is on the Holden Commodore – $7500 off – while the Astra hatch and sedan that were also discontinued last year have a flat rate of $8500 off to about $12,000 drive-away for the base models.


Additional Info (Thanks Techie4066):

Discounts on driveaway costs. All stock in remaining dealerships is expected to be depleted well before the end of 2020, with some dealers expecting to close by the end of financial year (June 30). Expected discounts from the start of March according to dealer bulletin (subject to change):

Holden Colorado (ute) - $13,000 to $17,500 off
Holden Trax (small SUV) - $10,000 to $11,000 off (down to ~$13,000 driveaway)
Holden Acadia (large seven seat SUV) - $11,500 to $17,00 off
Holden Commodore (liftback/tourer/sportwagon) - $7,500 off
Holden Astra (hatch/sedan) - $8,500 off (down to ~$12,000 base model driveaway)
Holden Equinox (medium SUV) - $10,750 off (down to ~$20,000 base model driveaway)

Opinions vary on these vehicles, but do jump on them if you have been in the market and are happy with what's available. Holden will provide servicing and spare parts for the next ten years (through a national aftersales network), ongoing call centre support, will issue recalls where necessary, and will honour existing warranties, guarantees and free scheduled servicing offers.

Mod: Article/bulletin lists the prices as drive away, but the pricing is not final and may be subject to change. As always, the deal may be removed (unobtainable) in the future, if it does not go ahead as (or close to) advertised/listed. Minor changes will be updated.

Mod: The deal become largely unobtainable. See comments. Moved to forums.

              Doesn't mean you won't have to wait 6 months for the next run of that part you need to be manufactured.

              Are Holden parts unique? I always thought a large number of parts are shared amongst different brands of cars under the GM umbrella (or other brands, if they're just rebadged).

              RHD trim pieces on the other hand… :)

              •  

                @eug: Who knows, the stuff we made for them wasn't unique to them. Given however GM are dropping all RHD globally there's bound to be parts that won't be in regular production.

            •  

              @apsilon: Nonsense. I buy lot's of car parts on eBay and I can get pretty much anything I want straight away, either sourced locally or internationally. There's a huge, huge market for car parts and accessories with plenty of suppliers.

              •  

                @R4: So do I and some parts are simply unavailable even used and/or fetch a fortune the rare times they do come up. Once something is out of production and as time passes that's the way it goes. Add in something that wasn't a popular model to begin with and your timeframe becomes shorter.

                On the plus side a failure is far more likely to be electrical in nature these days so can often be worked around.

                It's also unrealistic to expect a non car person, ie the average driver, to want to be sourcing their own parts from somewhere in the world even if they knew what they wanted.

                •  

                  @apsilon: Sure, but all the cars I buy stuff for are maximum 10-12 years old and I've never had a problem. I get most of it internationally as Australia has limited availability and stupid prices.
