2012 Chevrolet Captiva Sport SUV 1LS Fleet 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

Front Wheel Bearings go out quickly !!! Left front bearing went out at 38,000 miles, again at 47,000 miles and we are now at 62,000 miles and waiting for it to go again. When talking to the dealer mechanic, he says this is a problem with this model. I have had cars with 300,000 miles and never replaced a wheel bearing. The transmission slips once in while, sometimes shifts up to high causing the engine to lug down and vibrate, or takes an excessive amount of time to shift causing engine to race. Engine idle is rough at times up and down from 200 to 500 RPMs. The rear window washer does not stop running when rear window defroster is used. Unless you shut everything off, it will empty the windshield washer tank of the solvent. Took it to the dealer and had some improvement but never resolved. My foot is so big that sometimes when I step on the brake pedal I depress the gas pedal at the same time, never had that problem with the many vehicles that I have had in the past. I can see this causing an accident for the elderly or even myself, if not careful about it. The comfort of this vehicle is poor when traveling more than an hour. I would never buy this model again !!!

Review

Just wondering if anyone has an issue with the seal around the Driver Shaft leaking???

My Captiva is now 2years since I bought it. I went for my 2nd inspection on this "Brand New" 2012 Captiva and there's a charge of $850.00 because of this issue. Who has that kinda of money to put into a "Brand New" Car??? I chose to buy "Brand New" so I wouldn't have any "Major Issues" for at least 5yrs!!!

Review

After 8 years and over 123k miles, the old
Subaru Forester needed significant repairs.
Needed a roomy SUV, not a subcompact.
Found the Chevy Captiva at Hertz car sales; 33k.After 36K, car would lose power for no reason; check engine light came on. While waiting for appt. with Chevy dealer, car then stalled while idling-had to have it towed.Needed oxygen sensor and fuel injector-no longer covered by warranty.Ran sluggish after repairs.Took to mechanic friend - changed transmission + brake fluid.Found transmission fluid to be black, needed new cap; found a worn cracked bolt to shock absorber. Don't know what else he did, but it runs like silk now. (chevy did suggest changing fluids at time)


Best Features

Roomy, comfortable. Would like better mpg; but am averaging 25mpg.


Worst Features

Work on mpg. Other than that am happy with this car at this time.
