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

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.

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

Love my 7 seater Captiva
Bought 2015 brand new, petrol, automatic. My Captiva has never given me a problem. This is my 2nd Captiva. Love the space, sunroof, leather seats/interior, rear camera & sensor.... love this car. No regrets purchasing this Captiva. I’ve looked after this car well. Staff at Castle Hill Holden very helpful & friendly BUT Holden Blacktown staff are so opposite.

Auto Transmission total meltdown at 127,000klm.. Holden don't want to know about it
My wife's car. 2013 model, 127,000klms. Dealership carried out the 130,000klm service, and skipped the now known to be crucial 120,000klm auto oil change service because they serviced according to time rather than distance. Transmission total meltdown failure. Have had oil laboratory tested, and found to be well within DX6 specification and clean, apart from huge amount of metal fragments. Numerous exchanges with the dealership and Holdencare, but all to no avail. Next step is N.C.A.T. I'm not paying an $8,000 repair bill for a piece of junk that is a VERY well known and documented failure with this product. If anybody can add any supporting evidence or experiences, would be much appreciated.

A practical and great looking wagon/suv
I bought a second hand 2014 LTZ diesel Captiva with 134000 km’s.
Since owning I’ve changed to Pedders Suspension- bushes/shocks/struts/springs. I highly recommend using aftermarket if replacing, because genuine may not last as long from GM.
This has made quiet a difference for ride and handling. It’s a shame that some of the original wearing parts, pre-maturely wear out it seems (especially anything rubber looking).
I’ve had the transmission fluid changed and it’s now changing gears smoother than ever. Unfortunately the leather seats are a bi...

Great to drive and reliable
We purchased the car brand new in 2008, an AWD turbo Diesel. its been the most reliable car we have ever had, and that's from me who has owned Toyota's for most of his life, with issus I might add.. One problem last year with the brake line on the Captiva at $230 cost. Otherwise, in the last 12 yrs it's been brilliant. But, we have serviced it too the book (every 12 months) for the first 6 yrs (extended warranty), then have serviced every 6 months.

This is my ever day car
I drive the car every day and l always service it on time but l have a oil leak from turbo just gotta fix that aswell but besides that it's a very good car
Purchased in November 2018 for $8,500.00.
Use my car to drop kids at school and drove them to curricular activities. Very high fuel consumption.
The car itself is very comfortable and leather seats are great with kids. Plenty of room in the boot and in the back. Wish it had aircon in the back though for the kids.

Bought the diesel turbo .all wheel drive.89,000km. 6 years old. Problem with smoke comming from under bonnet when it starts cleaning the particle filter. Told dealer when serviced but never seams to fix the problem. Replaced shock absorbers. Replaced tension pulley. Had oil leaks from pipe to turbo. Always been serviced regularly. Endless money pit. Stay away.

Paid 8500 5mths later 3000 for transfer now shift problems. Drops hard going down shift between 4th to 3rd, it's like goes into early.I don't want to be up for a gearbox now.
We bought our Holden Captiva Ltz brand new in 2014. Its used everyday for the school drop offs and pickups and grocery trips. It fits the 3 car seats in the back easily and it’s been a nice enough car to drive. It’s always been serviced on time and has only got 57, 000km on the clock.
The downside is the fuel economy. We average around 19l-20l per 100km, we get around 300-320km to a 65l tank. I have thought about going for a smaller car to do the school run but the car has depreciated so much I can’t justify losing the money when we paid $40...

It has been nothing but trouble since purchase.
Transmission went at 40,000 kms and was replaced under warranty, it went again at 93,000 kms and replaced 2nd time out of warranty. After warranty expired the transmission went again and had to pay $7000 to have it replaced out of pocket. I am working with a group of other captiva owners to SUE Holden for selling a faulty product. Spent nearly $20,000 on repairs for this vehicle and it has only done 130,000 kms.
