Throttle body injection[edit]

"The result was that Holden dropped the multi-point injection for the 1.8-litre and reverted to single-point, akin to a carburettor, and altered the tuning of the engine to suit. A power-robbing catalytic converter was fitted, and power output was reduced by 20 kilowatts (27 hp) to 63 kilowatts (84 hp)."

Throttle body injection is nothing like a carburetter and the difference in power output is only about 5%. MPI was dropped on all J cars by GM because of reliability problems. The principal cause of the reduction in power was the introduction of stricter emission controls. (talk) 02:58, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

Electric Windows[edit]

Camiras never had the option of power windows. Ill find the sources and alter the article accordingly. Encise 06:23, 11 December 2006 (UTC)Encise

Rewriting the article[edit]

I removed the following paragraph from the section on the final generation model:

I am trying to ensure this article is kept within Wikipedia:Neutral point of view. If anyone can help me fix it that would be much appreciated. I am not much of an expert on Holden cars, so any help on re-writing the article would be appreciated. --Solumeiras talk 09:29, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

I removed a lot of POV content or toned it down but tried to leave as much information as possible as the page has long been lean on it. I'm amazed there's this much, I hope some owners upload some photos. - Diceman 14:44, 10 November 2007 (UTC)

Common problems[edit]

I have commented out this section per Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not. If there was verifiable evidence of these problems attributed to a reliable source, then this section could be written again, but it looked more like a car magazine article than an encyclopedic article on them. --Solumeiras talk 11:19, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

Nissan Engine[edit]

I have removed the section on the Nissan Pulsar engine. The Nissan engine was not used on the Camira, only on the Holden Astra, a badge engineered Nissan Pulsar. (talk) 00:47, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

I think you've got that wrong, the Holden engine was used on both cars, so the comparison is valid. - Schnob Reider (talk) 11:07, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Wagon was a Holden design?[edit]

"The wagon variant was specifically a Holden design, and was actually a major demand Holden had in the overall "J-car" program." Was it really? How come there is no mention of this on the Chevrolet Cavalier page, which seems to use a more or less identical station wagon body? Same goes for the J-body Pontiac Sunbird and Oldsmobile Firenza. The only differences I can see are the American versions have a lower bumper resulting in a taller tailgate, different rear lights and number plate recess, and a different c-pillar design. --Zilog Jones (talk) 22:48, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

I can't comment on the North American models, but according to GoAuto, Marque Publishing and Terry Bebbington's 60 Years of Holden (2009) it was a Holden design.
Pages 200–2001 of Bebbington (2009) state, "Initially, Camira was available only as a 4-door sedan, joined in March 1983 by a spacious wagon. The Camira wagon's rear end design and development was carried out in Australia by Holden engineers. Panels and components unique to the wagon were sold kit form to Vauxhall U.K., enabling Cavalier wagon production." OSX (talkcontributions) 03:03, 19 February 2011 (UTC)
