Oh I am with you on a propper test as most of this stuff is probably supervised testing days they tend to be on their best behaviour. I know the Drive.com.au drive around Australia test is upto over 6000 kilometres and about 8 days on the road I think its more like 10 days or so now they've got video's mostly about were they've been and the few little niggles with the test car. The most major was MyLink freezing and being stuck on one station very loud. ( so long as it wasn't "My Heart Will Go On" by Celine Deon i'd be fine lol. I'll find the specific link to the series review.

Test car is a Calais V 3.6 litre V6 in Alchemy

That goes to the main VF page then just follow the links to each day. You will find day 12 there somewhere with pics of the sall roadtrains of about 4 trailers. I'm licenced to drive upto 6 trailers. I haven't gone that many though as where I live we only usually do upto 3 max outside the metro.

I read that, the system froze up and the car had to be turned off for a few minutes to reset, it failed to clear on the first try becouse they were too quick on the restart and were told too wait longer by the Holden guys.

I was talkin to the guys up at Birdwood Sunday last weekthe day they had the problem. They said to me that it was the only problem they had. They were averaging 9.3 per hundred which seems a little high. But when they told me some of the detours and the way they were driving it made a little more sense. They were really just enjoying the car, and when your not paying for fuel (test drive or not) you don't really care how much you use. Well I know I don't :D
The only thing the guys were really upset about is that it was supposed to be a white SS on this drive but got changed at the last minute.
