Holden Colorado 2018 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Holden Colorado 2018 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • When fitting four new tyres on my 2018 Holden Colorado, I was told it needed new suspension fitted, because the wheel alignment was out and could not be adjusted...

    It all depends on what parts of the suspension the workshop is telling you is worn out. If the strut tops or suspension-arm bushes are worn out, or there’s a problem with the ball-joints or tie-rod ends being too worn, then there’s certainly the chance that there’s insufficient adjustment within the system to return your wheel alignment settings to their correct spec. Even a worn out wheel bearing can cause all sorts of wheel-alignment issues.

    Just because you haven’t felt the problem, doesn’t mean it isn’t there. These issues develop gradually and we don’t always notice the small changes week to week until they become a bigger problem.

    If, however, you genuinely think the tyre shop is trying to rip you off, you can have the car independently inspected to see if you’re being told the truth. Your state motoring club should be able to help here. Sadly, some of the bigger car-repair retailers have been caught loading up a customer’s repair quote in the past, and consumers need to be on the lookout for these bogus `faults’ that will be added to the bill. We’re definitely not tarring all big chain retailers with the same brush, but it’s something to be aware of.

  • What utes do you recommend?

    The HiLux would be my first choice, followed by the Colorado.

  • Nissan Navara: Suitable for towing?

     Both have a 3500kg towing rating, so will tow most caravans with ease, but you also need to be aware of the Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) and Gross Combination Mass (GCM) and make sure you don’t exceed them when loaded.

  • Is a Holden Colorado reliable?

    Being new there’s little history to tell you about any issues, it’s simply too early to make any predictions. When Carsguide reviewed the Colorado it was rated at 7.5/10, a pretty good score. It’s clearly on the money when it comes to utes. One thing I would point out is that the diesel engine has a cam timing belt, and while Holden says it’s maintenance-free I remain sceptical. Overall, I don’t think you have anything to be concerned about.
