Hey mate, I'd do an all over general check of your vl..
Like the steering wheel, pedals, gear shifter, carpet, console, drivers seat and the ignition barrell..Ofcourse they can all be replaced, but its a start
Or if your keen, take it do a decent mechanic, or Holden..
Good luck mate..

Sorry to resurrect a old thread
Ive only 262000 on mine.

Old mate down the road from me has a standard 86 berlina auto. He has owned the car for a long time, almost since new...
It has 350,000 kays on the clock, original motor.... but heres the catch, the odometre hasnt worked for 11 years.
In the past 11 years, he claims his driving habbits havnt changed...
11 years ago it was 1999 and the car was 13 years old and had some 350,000 kays.
Going of those numbers, it has aprox 700,000 kays under its RB30 belt
