Servicing

SIMILAR MODELS TO HOLDEN COLORADO

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: HOLDEN COLORADO (2012 ON)

Like any modern, common-rail turbo diesel engine, the one in the Colorado requires the correct maintenance and servicing if it's to remain reliable.

Failed fuel injectors can be a big expense, so if the vehicle is approaching the 100,000km mark or so, these need to be checked out carefully.

If the vehicle has a big tow-bar fitted and a manual transmission, try to find out what it has towed and by whom. If possible, talk to the previous owner and ask if they've ever towed a really heavy load and whether or not they towed using fifth gear. This gearbox doesn't like being loaded up in the overdriven fifth gear, which can fail - taking the rest of the gearbox with it.

Squeaks from under the Colorado are likely to be dry bushes that can be lubricated simply and cheaply, and check for signs of water entry around the high-mounted brake light. The seals of these can fail and allow rainwater into the cabin. Water stains on the headlining are a sure sign this is happening.
