Holden Captiva 2016 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Holden Captiva 2016 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Is there a problem with the timing chain in my 2016 Holden Captiva?

    The V6 engine in the Captiva is well known for its propensity to suffer from worn or stretched timing chains far too early in life. Early signs can be a rattling noise when the engine is first started (hot or cold) as well as a check-engine light on the dashboard. The check-engine light is a result of the stretched chain allowing the camshafts to move so far out of sync with the rest of the engine that the sensor that measures their position can longer 'find' them. At which point, the warning light is triggered.

    You can also have the car electronically scanned to see what’s going on. If the computer throws up fault codes P0008, P0009, P0016, P0017, P0018 or P0019, then you almost certainly have a stretched timing chain. Replacement of the chain is the only proper fix.

  • Holden Captiva 2016: Excessive fuel consumption

    Go back to the dealer and ask to see the results of the test, so you know what they are, and whether or not they reflect the results you get. The average you are measuring is crazily high if it's correct. It's not at all normal, which suggests there is a problem, possibly with the engine management system, which needs further investigation.

  • Holden Captiva: What's the diesel's fuel consumption

    6.7 L/100 km in country type driving. Now, they're the official numbers, which are best used to compare the fuel-efficiency of different makes and models. They're not necessarily the figures you would get in your particular driving conditions. You should get somewhere near them, but there are so many things that can affect fuel consumption that you should not expect the car to give you the consumption claimed.

  • Holden Captiva: What's a good replacement?

    Both the CX-5 and the Tribeca are good choices; they're capable, well built and reliable. Others to consider are the Kia Sportage and Sorento. While they are Korean like the Captiva, unlike the Captiva they're very good cars, well built and reliable.
