Do yourself a massive favour do not buy the Holden Insignia VXR under any circumstances. The car has a major steering design fault which both Holden and Opel are unable to resolve. It starts as a innocent enough droning / rubbing noise when the steering is under load on lock. This progressively become worse until the power steering fails which who knows what the end result could be when driving this car. If you would like to see the noise yourself just simply google Insignia VXR and you can observe for yourself
