rubbish vehicle

I had a very ordinary experience with the Holden Captiva. I owned a 2013 Holden Captiva and it spent a lot of time on the back of the tow truck. computer, starter motor, blown engine. worst car I ever owned. Show details

Lock out problem

My 2014 HOLDEN CAPTIVA locked all doors and would not respond to the is electronic nor manual keys , Naturally I phoned our local ex Holden Dealer Young Motors Geraldton from whom it was purchased .The service manager said the vehicle would have to be carried to them via towing co . On the of chance i spoke to a local auto election ,within 30 minutes a young lad attended ,ten minutes later the car was unlocked and purring away .. cost 75 dollars  Show details

Great value 7 seater SUV

Bought the car 2017 and so far love this car. It has everything with a low price tag. Leather seats, 7 seaters, Android auto, reverse camera, sunroof, keyless entry. It drives well and felt better with the eco button on. High driving seat as well, so it is easy to see your surrounding. When I bought this, it comes with 7 years warranty and capped service, so that is a big bonus. Show details

Captiva keeps stalling n wont regen

Just had throttle body replaced, egr valve and a force burn at the mechanic on the 2010 turbo diesel cg captiva. Captiva done a few in-regular burns, since then captiva hasn't done anymore burns and will stall while driving almost every time we drive. Have to turn ignition off n back on starts straight away, also noticed when restarting car the traction control lights stay on after stalling. It did throw a code once it was P02E1 diesel intake air flow control performance, i plugged a spc tools scan tool in and the misses cleared it by accident code hasnt came back since and car will still stall and help would be appreciated thanks Show details

ABS, traction control, anti-skid and descent control lights illuminated. Sometimes turning off. Checked wiring and was some damage to insulation, have taped.

This is most likely a faulty wheel speed sensor. Either check for any codes using an OBD2 scanner or just replace all 4 sensors. They’re cheap and easy to fit.
