Fantastic reliable

Had Captiva for 4 years we’ve done 50000 on top of the 140000 it had on it when purchased, only just spent money on it recently for just the usual wear and tear. Great car runs well interior is very nice, done many long trips without any issues, reliable car.

Amazing affordable family car

The 7 seater Captiva is an amazing family car and has a lot of space, never had a problem with the car and has never broken down on me. Looks good, very comfortable in long drives and very smooth. I read many bad reviews about the car but my friend recommended it for a family car and we love it.

Craptiva

Worst decision purchasing Captiva. Very poor quality cars, money pit, air conditioning for 7 seater is great for the front seat people the middle row have their vents under the front seat so their feet get air however their faces don’t and the third row no vents at all and no ventilation. No boot space the only thing that looks good is the outside of the car but that works out to be a pretty expensive if you are only buying for the looks

Great car

I like the style of it and holden has a good reputation. Looks alot more expensive than it is. Good performance for the price point. Interior is nice, no plastic looking rubbish dashboard, but nothing fancy eaither. One thing is dislike is there are no air conditioner or heater vents for the kids in the rear, and on a very hot day they are boiling, until the whole car cools down. Besides that, never had a problem with it and we drive it alot.

Craptiva for sure

Car looked and run like brand new, got it at 58,000km. Then 3 months later with only 2000km, my Holden Captiva cx 2012 was running but couldn't move. Now have to fork out $4000 for a new transfer box installed, well done Holden, for screwing us all.not the same any more tisk tisk.

Would not buy again

We bought our captiva brand new and have regretted it ever since. The car compared to others is very dated and within a year the gearbox went and the electric window in the front died. The car engine computer has also had lots of issues that we have had to take back to holden and we have found them quite unhelpful and dismissive. Very disappointing.

This car is very Fuel Economical and has great value for money

I am not a big Fan of Holden. But, one thing attracted me to this car was its look. I bought it with great expectations and I don't regret my decision at all. This is wonderful Diesel car with a lot of room in it. Simply this car has value for money.

Amazing comfort and great handling. Great on fuel and a quiet drive

I currently get 10.3km per 100. This is suburban driving and looking forward to seeing what I can get with freeway driving. Very reliable with plenty of lights to indicate if something is wrong. Smooth handling with 18 inch tyres that give a quite safe drive in the wet and dry.

Can my car tow a large Uhaul furniture van(enclosed trailer) full of cupboards and 2 queen mattresses and plain bases, I have no idea what the cupboards(tall boys & low buffets and beds)weigh in total, how does one work it out as to what the car is pulling, is it the weight of the trailer and its contents or is it JUST the contents weight in total etc?
I'm planning to hire the Uhaul one way to drive from Perth to NSW and saves $ on an interstate moving company etc any advice plz..
Ps: my Captiva is a great car, bought it 2yrs ago from a family that routinely serviced it and replaced the transfer case and I've kept up the servicing and so far so great..
