Holden Captiva: Engine failure

Answered by CarsGuide 23 Feb 2015

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.

Holden Captiva7: Excessive diesel fuel consumption

Answered by CarsGuide 29 Nov 2013

I agree. While the advertised fuel consumption figure is the result of a lab test and is intended only for comparison purposes I think it's reasonable to expect that the real life figure should be close to that figure. Given the size and weight of the Captiva a number of 9 L/100 km seems quite low, lower than I would expect. Don't expect it to improve much as the car is "run-in", that's something dealers say to out you off.

Holden Captiva: Rocker arm failure update

Answered by CarsGuide 23 Aug 2013

Some early Captivas fitted with the diesel engine may have experienced a condition whereby the camshaft rocker arm bearing could fail. In some instances this rocker arm failure was known to result in damage to the camshaft(s). A revised camshaft rocker arm assembly was released into vehicle/engine production to address this problem. These revised parts were also made available to service to replace any failed parts in the field. The service fix advice if presented with a 'Rocker arm failure', is to replace all the rocker arms with the revised parts.
