2007-2010 Holden Captiva diesel recalled

Holden has recalled the 2007-2010 Captiva, over concerns vehicles fitted with the 2.0-litre diesel could catch fire.

If there is a leak, Holden says there's a risk of stalling or an engine bay fire...

General Motors says ride-sharing economy unlikely to affect sales

General Motors says the rise of the ride-sharing economy is unlikely to have a negative impact on its long-term business, not only because the brand is involved with helping power that automotive shift directly, but also because it believes ride-sharing will cap out in due time...

2012 Holden Captiva 5 (FWD) review

It's a great car, but the new Captivas look better. I think I would go for a Captiva again, but I'll need to look into it more before I make a purchase. The car has no grunt for it being a Holden. I would expect it to have more go to it. It is comfortable and nice to drive, and would suit a family car, but not one for those who often need take-off acceleration...

2016 Holden Captiva 7 LTZ (AWD) review

I was aware of the Captiva's reputation. The value for money in the LTZ diesel swayed me. After 12,800km in nine months, 1100km towing a 1.8-tonne caravan in the heat of summer, it hasn't missed a beat. Everything works; nothing has stopped working or fallen off. Around town it is returning 9.3L/100km, Holden claims 8.4L/100km. Towing reduces economy to 11...

2016 Holden Captiva 5 LS (FWD) Review

We shopped the entry-model Captiva against the entry-model Hyundai Tucson. The interior of the Captiva seemed more upmarket, the size was bigger and the price was about $4000 cheaper. We were impressed with the economy of such a large car when using regular petrol and liked that it was smooth and quiet...

I am the lucky recipient of a 2014 Holden Captiva LT 2.2 diesel. Spoiler alert it's a company car. It's got 30,000km-ish on it. As a company car it's great, it does everything it needs to do (plus I get a new one next year, nice huh?) however would I part with my own money for it? Let's find out. The good bits...
