Replacement Engines and Parts
There are some vehicles that arrive with a bang and immediately capture the hearts of the buying public, and then there are a few that offer tremendous value, but which never seem to get the love that they deserve. The Holden Captiva falls into the latter category, and it is getting ready to make its swan song after 13 years on the market. There can be no denying that this was a vehicle packed with value, but the Australian public never really managed to fall in love with it. GM Holden are hoping that they can do better with the vehicle that will replace the Captiva. Replacement Holden engines are available in Australia.
The Holden Equinox SUV will be released later this year to much fanfare, and hopefully the sound of people rushing to showrooms to pick one up. While the Equinox is being sold as a replacement, there are some differences between it and the Captiva, the most obvious of which is that the new vehicle will be a 5-seater as opposed to 7. That said, the dimensions of this one are about the same as the outgoing model, which means buyers are going to be treated to a good deal more passenger and cargo space on the inside.
While the new vehicle is being developed in the US, it is being done so under the watchful eye of Australian engineers, as they look to make the Equinox a vehicle that will be more suited to life on the road in Oz. What that mean is putting together a vehicle that is more European in the way that it rides and handles, which essentially translates into a more sophisticated SUV from top to bottom. Holden are hoping that by putting a bit of an Aussie spin on the vehicle, they will make it more appealing to consumers in Australia.
A lot of thought has been put into the interior of the Equinox, which includes adding seats that are sculpted and a good deal more comfortable than those found in the Captiva. It also means making sure that the rear seats can be folded down flat so that there is a cavernous amount of space in back, which should prove to be a real treat for those who want to take their new vehicle o weekend adventures, with a whole bunch of gear packed in back.
The Holden Captiva will soon be gone, but it will not be forgotten by those who still own one. There are plenty of people out there who do love this vehicle, and they will want to make it last as long as possible. The good news is that getting a replacement Holden engine or motor after the Captiva has been scrapped from production will still be a breeze. You will even be able to go online and order a whole engine that will be delivered straight to your front door. Not a bad deal for Captiva lovers worried about finding replacement parts after it stops being made.
