Holden Captiva 2006 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Holden Captiva here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Holden Captiva 2006: Is it worth getting a new timing chain?
It is worth fixing, you will only have more trouble if you don’t. Cost depends on the engine. If it’s a V6 it could cost as much as $3000, a 4-cylinder less.
Holden Captiva: 4WD?
Since its introduction in 2006 Holden has sold the Daewoo-designed and built Captiva crossover SUV in both front-wheel drive and four-wheel drive. Although they have sold a range of different engine and transmission options there has never been a rear-wheel drive layout offered.
Holden Captiva 2006: Transmission problems
The automatic transmission has been a problem for Captiva owners, but you’re unlikely to get much sympathy from Holden on a car that is now 11 years old. How’s to say what might've happened to the transmission in the past 11 years.
Best budget 7 seaters?
The used Captiva does appear to be great value, but their shaky reputation for reliability would lead me to consider other options. The Territory would be a better bet, but they are known to have electrical and front suspension issues in the long-term. If you're after an SUV, a seven-seat 2006-12 Mitsubishi Outlander is smart buying at the moment, but if you're just after the seven seats, I highly recommend taking a look at a 2008-13 Kia Rondo. These represent excellent value at the moment. Hope that helps, and keep us posted with your progress.
