Spares, Warranty and service to continue --------
By now, you may have heard the news that General Motors will be retiring the Holden brand in Australia and New Zealand. This announcement will be felt deeply by the entire Holden family, our customers and our fans.

While we understand the impact that this decision may have on you, we want to provide assurance that Holden will continue to support customers in the following ways:

Honour all existing warranties and guarantees
Honour all free scheduled servicing offers
Ongoing call centre support
Provide servicing and spare parts for at least 10 years, through national aftersales networks in Australia and New Zealand
Recalls or safety-related issues if they arise
We have a long transition in front of us and we are focused on supporting our customers and our Dealers through this change. The doors do not close tomorrow. In fact, your local Dealership remains in operation and any existing bookings and agreements remain in place.

We are commencing work with our Dealer partners on timing to cease sales of new vehicles, as well as transitioning dealerships to authorised service outlets. Any future changes to our Dealer network that have a direct impact on you, will be communicated at that time.

This decision has not been taken lightly, especially considering the iconic status of the Holden brand. Holden will always have a special place in the development of our countries. As Australia and New Zealand grew, Holden was a part of the engine room fuelling that development.

This announcement will be felt deeply by the many people who love Holden, drive a Holden and feel connected to our company which has been with us for 160 years.

Kristian Aquilina
Interim Chairman and Managing Director

You won't be able to give a GM car away in those markets now, who's going to want one? I guess if you buy and drive it for a few years on a lease you'd be okay.

Could be some good sales incentives coming.

They are also exiting Thailand and selling the plant to Great Wall a Chinese auto manufacturer.

Basically, GM is becoming a American hemisphere and Chinese company.

GM will be an electric brand in China and a dinosaur brand in North America. I don't think GM's doing that well in South America either.

Selling of plants that don't make money to put into electric vehicles which is the future. You can't sell vehicles if they are outlawed (except in the US that always glamorized the outlaw).
