Holden entered SUV territory in 2006 with the Captiva imported from South Korea. For several years, there was a Captiva 5 with five seats and different styling, as well as Captiva 7 that added a third-row for a total of seven seats. The Captiva was consolidated into a single model as part of a 2016 update before it was replaced by the US-sourced Equinox.

Servicing

SIMILAR MODELS TO HOLDEN CAPTIVA

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: HOLDEN CAPTIVA (2011 to 2017)

Diesel versions of the Captiva seem to suffer the common woes of modern turbo-diesel technology.

The soot filter can become blocked, particularly if the vehicle doesn't see at least some highway running every few weeks.

The combination of exhaust-gas recirculation and crankcase ventilation conspires to create a black, gooey sludge that collects in the intake manifold and can seriously affect performance and economy.

Beyond that, the Captiva seems to be a bit trouble-prone in terms of things like its electrical systems, so make sure everything works properly.

Some owners have reported gearbox failures, too, so check that the automatic selects gears promptly and without bangs or clunks, and that all the gears are present and accounted for.

Don't forget to check reverse as well.
