Replacing the outgoing Commodore Executive and Acclaim, the Omega offers a halfway point in terms of equipment levels.[67] The most significant gain over the Executive is the electronic stability control system (Bosch version 8.0) now standard across the range.[68] Like all VE models, the Omega uses a "space saver" spare tyre, which has come under scrutiny. The tyre can be driven for 500 kilometres (300 mi) at a maximum speed of 80 kilometres per hour (50 mph). Concerns have been raised by the public over its usefulness in remote Australian outback areas, far from any tyre repair centres and asserts that it is a cost-cutting measure.[69] Similar concerns have been raised in the media, although Holden maintains that this is a weight-saving feature and allows for full-size spare tyres to be purchased at an additional cost.[70] Likewise, critics found the omission of standard air conditioning for the Omega model unforgivable, given both the overall hot Australian climate, and the cost of the car.[71] This, however, was rectified in the MY09 upgrade of the Omega (see below).[72]

Holden have offered five limited edition models based on the Omega
