Would buy again

2008 Captiva LX. Excellent diesel economy up to 7.5 L/km average both town and country combined and 15km/L towing a caravan. No problems, drives and handles well. Will buy another.

Never had a problem!

I purchased my Holden captiva LX petrol new 2009 and have never had a problem! It's been a fabulous family car, very luxurious, love all the features, great reverse camera, the kids love watching movies on the tv, it drives smoothly & tows my 14ft caravan with no issues.

Love it!

Love it, been a great family car

Fun to drive, lovely appearance, have had many comments on how it is a nice vehicle.

Pretty good on fuel. Has been very reliable. Plenty of cargo room.

Love the electric seat control and many compartments for storage.

Have made use of the seven seats on many occasions doing the soccer run.

Kids are comfortable in the back seat a bit more room than some SUV's.
Reliable and great for town or long distance driving. 7 seats very handy.

Craptiva

2007 lx AWD Holden captiva is a lemon. 16 l per 100 km very hard on tyres. Fuelnpump failed, electoral/ computer fail, timing chain stretched and motor needs removing to adjust( $ 3800.) The rear tail lights constantly blow bulbs and the roll on the suspension is hard and wears out tyres. It digs in. the car has been a total waste. Of money and cheaply made but expensively sold !
7 seats
Timing chain electrical and heavy fuel usage . Show details

Good

Captiva LX: after driving this all wheel drive it is very smooth under power and to ride in i was extremly impressed with its handling for such a large all wheel drive.the motor is quiet compaired with the popular commondore (note the miss spelling) and has little transmission noise .it is lacking on features in the cx and lx ie trip computer leather and all the extras that the maxx model comes with .all in all a great all wheel drive
this car is very quiet very smooth and powerful for a large all wheel drive
hard seats and difficult to get out and ugly rear Show details

Excellent

Captiva LX: Really surprised me. I was expecting a Daewoo dog but ended up with a Korean kracker! Amazingly useful. I took it to the beach via 70kms of dirt and it didn't miss a beat. No rattles either. The engine could do with the higher output and the brakes leave a bit to be desired. But overall, the equipment levels and performance for the money make it a great buy. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
Versatile; roomy; very good equipment levels for the money; smooth engine changes; excellent suspension.
Poor gear ratios; 190kw Alloytech needed to move easier; fuel consumption suffers due to engine; seats need attention; brakes. Show details

Terrible

Owned Captiva lx diesel for 4 weeks odometer 950klm fuel economy 16 litres/100klm rang delaers service department to complain i was told will have to run the car for 5000 to 6000 klm to run the engine in this is not stated in the handbook.when i ask them what will the figure reduce to after this period they stated that they do not know as this depends on my drive style .

The claimed 8.5 litres per 100 klm is questionable.

OK

I have the LX petrol 2009 Captiva 7 seat. If you want cheaper alternative for 7 seat 4WD this is a good choice compare to Toyota Kluger or Subaru Tribecca. There is no aircondition at the 2nd and 3rd row.Summer time could be a problem for anybody who sits at the 3rd row. The inside design not very nice. I found the car is a bit bouncy.But this car has a plenty of room.
Not as bulky as Toyota Kluger or Land Cruiser. If want cheaper price for 7 seat 4WD can consider Captiva.
Inside design not very good. The autoheadlights sensor too sensitive, sometimes very annoying. The bonnet very stiff very hard to close. Show details

Excellent

We are so happy with our Captiva LX 2008. Its roomy, handles well, very comfortable and quite economical. Considering its a All Wheel Drive the fuel consumption is reasonable. Recently I hit a emu and the car handled the smash extremely well. It did not crumble as much as others would have. Its a 7 seater with the two seats in the boot which are comfortable and has lots of leg room, Im 6 foot tall and find it easy to travel in the back. All the standard mod cons are in this car as well as leather seats. Servicing is affordable thru Holden. I would recommend Holden Captiva LX to anyone who is considering buying a AWD.
Everything, comfortable, roomy, handles well, sturdy. Wow a fabu;ous AWD.

Good

Very happy with purchase LX 08. Had DVD player fail.... still not repaired under warranty (been 2 months). Great family wagon. This wagon comfortably tows trailer with boot full and 2 adults 3 kids.
Great value for money, good fuel economy (diesel), feels solid to drive, all creature comforts in LX, diesel motor torgue good.
Body roll, no satnav provisions, stereo speakers crap, unattarctive rear end, could have better all round vision, no reversing cam. Show details
