Captiva crap

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. Show details

Love my car

I purchased my 2011 lx diesel awd second hand with less than 100xxx on the odometer. It is a great car paint work in great condition also inside and out is great what more could u want! Engine runs fine no mechanical issues. A lot of people are complaining about this car if you're looking to purchase second hand check the log book history to see how often it was serviced because if you look after your car it will look after you..simple.

Absolutely hate it now

Bought car from new. great car for 4 years. Then all went to crap. Problem after problem even blown transmission. Stranded on side of road twice with children last due to fire under bonnet, should have watched it burn completely would be free of all problems and the fight with Holden. Thankfully all has happened under warranty and extended warranty so hasn’t cost me anything. Holden still insist on replacing parts. car will not return to my household.

Fantastic Car

I absolutely love my Holden Captiva lx. Brand New straight off the showroom floor. Love the leg room compared to other cars I've driven. It's been very economical whether it's long distance or just running around town. Handles well very light steering for a medium suv. Very little road noise. This car has taken everything we've thrown in it. 7 seater so plenty of room for the family. Wouldn't trade it for the world.

Great car

I cautionally purchased the 2013 captiva lx nearly 5 yrs ago brand new after hearing concerns about the earlier model. However, my car has been prefect - touch wood. The only thing that happened was last year the turbo outlet pipe split and I lost power. An easy fix and car back to normal. The car has all the bells and whistles for a cheap diesel 7 seater. I had a medium entry ford tertitory which had heaps of problems and costs alot more than a territory. The captiva in power mode has plently of power and the open road has good passing power. My version of the 'craptiva' is all good and will be buying another one soon.

Great value but so many issues

Driving experience is ok, the seats are quite rigid and the leather is not very soft. Suspension is rough. This cR has been subject to some major warranty claims within its first two years of life and the servicing cost for this car (Captiva 7 LX DIESEL) is skyyyyyyyy high!

2012 LX

At first we were scared to purchase a captiva, all the bad reviews, what people have said 'craptiva' etc... I have friends who have purchased a captiva and have had no problems and recommended it. I was against it, but the wife loved it and we got ourselves a craptiva 2012 LX, top of the range. The sales person said pre 2012 were the issues; I hope they were right. Recommend the diesel, tried the petrol no guts, diesel has the power, just make sure to service every 6 months being diesel. Leather seats, 7 seats, blue tooth, heated seats, air con is great, built in nav man, sun roof. Enjoy the ride, fingers crossed.

Capitva yes

At the end of the day the Captiva is a good car, looked after and service properly, this car is both compact on the outside with ample room on the inside with so many options and top of the range LX having a leather interior it's luxury at a affordable price

Great features

We bought our car 4 months ago. The features are great for the value, except the in car GPS is quite difficult to use. 8.5 litres per 100 kilometers which is good. Only has air conditioning vents in the front though. Reliability so far has been good and the car drives well.
