Holden Captiva 2012: Lost power

Answered by CarsGuide 8 Feb 2019

Never let things slide if you feel your car has a problem. Pursue a solution until you are satisfied you have the answer. It’s not a good idea to miss services, particularly on cars with turbochargers. Keeping a fresh supply of oil is the key to trouble-free motoring with turbos. There’s every chance the turbo was faulty when you first noticed it, and having missed a service you probably contributed to the failure. There’s probably not a lot you can do, except to pay for the repairs.

Holden Captiva: Lemon

Answered by CarsGuide 25 Mar 2016

If you can't reach a satisfactory solution to your problem going to VCAT is a way of resolving it. I couldn't predict the outcome, but as Holden has had the car for extensive periods of time trying, without success it seems, to fix it, you would seem to be justified in making a claim against them.

Holden Captiva 2012: Exploded sunroof

Answered by CarsGuide 6 Nov 2015

Assuming you have the Holden extended warranty you should be covered in the event the sunroof failed due to faulty workmanship. I've never heard of the problem you experienced before, so it's hard to speculate on the cause. If Holden does reject your warranty claim then request them to cover it under goodwill.

Holden Captiva: Is it really that bad?

Answered by CarsGuide 13 Oct 2014

The negatives are in comparison with its classy rivals, including the Kia Sportage and Hyundai ix35 that - as with the Captiva - come from Korea. I've had readers complaining about quality and mechanical problems but the main shortcoming is basically its performance against the rivals.

Holden Captiva5: Fuel efficiency

Answered by CarsGuide 4 Apr 2014

It needs to go to a mechanic who can properly diagnose it. It sounds like it could be a sensor problem, which should show up on a diagnostic check.
