So the way I see it, if Ford employed the same tactics to counter their negative feedback, Trolls...I mean people like me would be doing their part in keeping others in work...

Every cloud has a silver lining..

holden should have listened to me
concentrated on a mid size AWD/RWD
would have opened up all body styles in SUV and allow AWD models
base RWD 4cyl
mid/high AWD/RWD v6
and performance RWD V8

basically do what BMW/Merc do but only offer a mid sizer
design it here build the core in korea and finish here in aus

imaging a v8 hsv captiva or cruze or even a rwd cruze would have been a cracker

How communist of Holden. Too bad that most of the stuff people are posting is fact, like killing australian manufacturing, for a company that prided itself on being australian, was one of the most idiotic things they could have possibly done.

How can they provide rebuttal on that?

It reminds me of the end of the Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back movie, after they see people talk crap about them on the internet, so they travel the country finding them and beating them up.

I'm actually surprised Holden even have the man power and the time to even consider this! Honestly, what other manufacturer comes out and says this?

Holden you have more pressing concerns to even worry about something so trivial!

Holden brought it on themself when they dropped the V8. It killed sales and ****ed people off.

so you are saying an LS3 pwered RWD cruze would not tickle you in that special place
commodores are junk too but they are kept alive by cheap parts and do good skids, except mine its AWD and doesn't do skids but it does go fast

Well, yeah, the build quality of Cruze's and Captiva's was just crap.

The Commodores while not great were much better.

Communism isn't dead after all. John Cadogen might need to start wearing a bullet proof vest cause the Holden red army snipers are coming lol!

Like the titanic HMAS RED LION's water tight compartments have all been breached, all counter measures to correct the ship are in vain.

Only thing left to do now is to strap MARK SKAIFE to the wheelhouse. As we know the captain must go down with the ship and his 'CAR OF THE FUTURE' legacy with it.

Actually, looking on Holden's Facebook, this is all storm in a teacup stuff,
Holden is basically turning the meanness of some posters against them.
"...hiding behind a keyboard, go for a test drive and then we'll talk."

From what I see, it's basically Commodore fans stuck in 2017, firing some
light weight pot shots at Holden...I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of is staged...
