Dreadful

There is no air conditioning in the back so our kids swelter on road trips, which seems ludicrous for a 7 seater. Parts are expensive & we found it hard to find an honest review. Dash lights come on frequently & Holden charge a fortune to turn them off. Have had a fuel line break, a radiator hose break & timing belt issues in the past 2 months, despite frequent servicing. That’s not to mention the minor issues, like the front driver seat slides back & forth, DVD player randomly stops working & other inconveniences. We truly dislike this car

Mechanical Nightmare

Brought the car 6 weeks ago.

Got half way to Sydney from Maitland got stranded on the side of the m1 with my 3 kids. DPF light came on quickly followed by the engine light, over heated and started smoking...

we were in perfect driving conditions for it to do a regen but for some reason it didn’t..

Turns out the turbo has been spitting oil into the air intake

Holden Captiva is craptiva

Bought a brand new Holden Crrraptiva in 2010. Just over 7 years old, had oil leak.

Took to the Holden dealer, got a quote of 3400$ to fix it. This a major issue with all Holden Captiva and they don't bother about fixing or recalling the cars

Holden probably give some extras compared to other Japanese cars, don't fall for the trap.

Never ever buy Holdens.

The worst car I've ever owned

We purchased our 2nd hand captiva in 2016 and had issues with it before even leaving the dealer.

Air bag light came on during test drive and they found the alternator needed replacement then on the drive home oil pump died and had to be towed. Engine light continually coming on and costing us heaps each time, fuel pump died we wish we never had brought it have spent enough on it to buy a new car

Holden Captiva 2009 LX

You know what, I had to sell my car for dirt cheap as I just couldn't get it fix completely and ever since I got Holden, I had nothing but problems. There is a major issue with all Holden is that the engine lights are always on and its a major issue, nothing wrong with the engine but it just comes up. I took it to Holden twice, they fixed it, charged me $800 each time and it comes up again.

It's not perfect , good value compared to other offerings

Pretty responsive,handles well and is relatively quiet,the leather upholstery is not quite up to scratch and the GPS map is not very good .however I haven't had any issues in the reliability stakes and running costs are acceptable. I would be happy to replace it with a new Captiva .

Excellent family car

My Holden Captiva LX 2010 is the best car I've ever had, the diesel car is fantastic and very fuel efficient. The handling of the car, for such a large car is quite impressive. The interior design is everything I've ever wanted, leather seats, automatic rear view mirrors, sunroof and a navigation system sums up how good a car this is. It is very roomy for a big family, however the only negative thing that I have to say about the car is the navigation system not being able to update. Other wise the car is very cheap to run for such a large car, I was contemplating the diesel or petrol and I'm certainly glad I decided on diesel, while you get the vibrations of the diesel car, you certainly save money per tank.

So Far So Good

Bought my Captiva in 2013.

Researched around for a while till i found one i was happy with for the right price. I have heard of a few lemons so really picky. Bought 2nd hand with 60,000 km on it. Diesel engine seems to be good so far. (i have put 30,000 km on it. No issues but thought the fuel economy would of been better, even after considering the weight and distances traveled. For a smaller SUV 7 seater, i am happy with the purchase 2 years later.
