Holden Captiva 2013 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Holden Captiva 2013 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Should I replace the engine in my 2013 Holden Captiva?
Depending on what sounds the engine is making will determine whether the engine is a throwaway or can be fixed. But if the consensus is that the engine in your car is beyond redemption, then I reckon a second-hand engine from a wrecked Captiva would be the best bet. I don’t think the car itself would be worth enough money to justify a rebuilt engine which could run to $10,000 or more.
Nobody wants to tell you this, but fundamentally, the Captiva was a pretty ordinary car. Lots of owners had lots of transmission problems (which you already know about) and plenty of diesel engines destroyed their turbochargers and – in some cases – the rest of the engine in the process. The petrol V6 was no beacon of excellence either, with a terrifying propensity to consume timing chains.
Who at Holden has rejected your claim for help in repairing the car? If it was the dealer, I’d simply go around that business and talk directly to Holden’s customer service department. The fact that the car has a full Holden service history might sway opinion at head office, but I wouldn’t be going to the bank on it given the age of the vehicle.Show more

Holden Captiva: Engine failure
I think you're being a bit harsh. I'm not a fan of the Captiva, but at least the dealer fixed it outside of the 100,000km warranty period.Show more
