Holden Captiva 2009 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Holden Captiva 2009 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Holden Captiva 2009: Should I replace a leaking turbo?
My friend, if I could find somebody to give me $5000 for a 2009 Captiva with a dodgy turbocharger, I’d be taking that deal in a heartbeat. The reality is that your car is worth about $5000 in decent working order, and nowhere near the $8000 you’ve calculated. That’s because you never really get back the money you spend in repairs; even if you spend $3000 on fixing a $5000 car, it will still only be worth about $5000. That’s the cruel reality of the used-car industry.
A cheaper, second-hand turbocharger is one way to go, but then you open yourself up to the risk of having bought, and paid to have installed, a turbo that is almost as worn out as the one that has failed on you. There’s no nice way to put this, but I’d be getting rid of that Captiva for the best price I could and not looking back.
Holden Captiva 2009: Engine dying
Check the fuel pump and the turbocharger.
Holden Captiva 2009: How to test a fault with injectors
Injector wear is prevalent on common-rail diesel engines with the high fuel pressure and rapid cycling. A diesel mechanic should be able to check the injectors for leakage.
Holden Captiva 2009: Trade in for a newer model?
I wouldn’t rush into selling it, I would get a second opinion on the turbo, and I doubt his prediction of further problems down the track as a result of replacing the turbo.
At 161,625 km the Captiva is still a relatively young car, and should still have a few years of service left in it. Instead of the Captiva, consider a Mazda CX-5, Kia Sorento, or perhaps a Nissan X-Trail.
