Holden Captiva 2008 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Holden Captiva 2008 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Holden Captiva: Limp mode
The starting problem could be the result of an alternator that's not charging the battery. Have an auto electrician check it.
Trying to find the cause of the engine warning lights coming on is a tough one.
If they are on all the time then take it to a dealer or a mechanic with diagnostic gear to check the system. It must be either a wiring problem or a sensor malfunction.
Holden Captiva: Timing case leak
$1000 does sound like a lot of money to fix an oil leak; I reckon a local mechanic could do it for less. The cost aside I would accept the deal, the car is out of warranty and an oil leak is not something I would spend time and energy fighting over.
Holden Captiva: Engine damage
You have to fix it, it's worth virtually nothing with a damaged engine, so there's no way around spending the money. But I would be very keen to find out what caused it to fail, and whether it's perhaps a manufacturing fault that has caused it.
Holden Captiva: Excessive tyre wear
The Captiva is an SUV, which means it's relatively heavy, and you pay a dear price in the form of tyre wear for hauling around all that weight. Getting 45,000 km from a set of tyres isn't a bad effort on that car. The tyres you have used previously are quality brands, so you won't do much better by switching to another make. If you wanted to change brands you could try Michelin or Bridgestone.
