Just a little feedback on the Holden Cruze sold in Australia.
I recently purchased a 2010 model CDX 2 litre diesel and was getting the error code 82 from the word go.
So I took the car to my mechanic who gave it a service and the full once over.
He gave it the thumbs up except was unable to reset the service oil change code 82.
He plugged in his scanner and still was unable to reset the code.
He also tried reseting it with the ignition on and 3 presses of the accelerator etc etc. but no dice.
So I called Holden and asked them what was the deal.
The response I got (from two different dealerships as I could not believe my ears from the first one) was that the only way to reset the Code 82 was to bring the car to a Holden dealership.
They have software that only Holden are privy to, and it's the only way to reset it. Apparently even Altratune etc etc bring the vehicles to Holden to reset the code (according to the Holden technician I spoke to).
Personally I feel this is unacceptable, I should have the freedom of choice to have who ever I like service my car. My mechanic is darn good and I'm sure is better then many of the juniors at Holden. Holden offer to reset the code for $44 - I refuse to pay the money so will just live with the code 82. Nice one Holden - you should be ashamed of yourselves!!!
I've always loved Holden cars but my next will most likely not be a Holden.
Thanks for hearing my rant to close out 2013!!
