Holden Captiva 2011: Why is it stalling?

Answered by CarsGuide 29 Feb 2020

It sounds like the entire car is shutting down. And if that happens at speed, or just as you’re preparing to pull out into moving traffic, that’s an incredibly dangerous thing to be happening. The best advice is to have the car scanned electronically, at which point the real problem might raise its head.

Beyond that, you’re clutching at straws, because whatever is going on is a fairly serious problem. Scanning the on-board computer doesn’t take long, and diagnosing the problem this way will save you time and money in the long run. It might even save you from a crash.

Holden Captiva 2011: Stretched timing chain

Answered by CarsGuide 17 May 2019

It needs to be fixed, it’s worth very little if you don’t repair it. There’s no reason to believe that you won’t get many more years out of it if you do have it repaired.

Holden Captiva: Door noise

Answered by CarsGuide 29 Sep 2017

It could be any number of things, the only way to find it to remove the door panel and take a look. I’d suggest you get a workshop manual to find out how to remove the door panel; they’re readily available on line.

Holden Captiva 2010: A reliable purchase?

Answered by CarsGuide 23 Jun 2017

It’s a high price compared to the average, which would be $9000 to $10,000, and with only a month of rego, but to compensate the kilometres are lower than average. The cost of maintenance is no higher than other, similar cars, so that’s not a problem. If you’re not sure about it have it checked by a mechanic, or the RACQ.

Holden Captiva: Broken door handles

Answered by CarsGuide 29 May 2017

It's annoying that this should happen, but I doubt that Holden would cover it. It's one of those things that can happen with age.

Holden Captiva 2011: Strange noise from engine

Answered by CarsGuide 7 Apr 2017

It won't be a leak of visible damage; it does sound like an internal gearbox problem. It could be a worn bearing. Get another mechanic to check it for you.
