"I love my 2015 captiva LT with all the options. I wanted a small SUV or truck as I live in snow country. I get around fine with Blizzak snow tires on this heavy vehicle. The feel and comfort is outstanding for the price. The steering is tight and fun to drive on winding roads. I love the look inside and out. Some may say it's out of date but I like it better than the newer body styles - nice exterior and the uncluttered dash. Clean and classy. When I found out it was being discontinued I had to buy before the gently used was forever gone. Mine was one of the last produced. I hope to have my COOLTIVA for many years to come."

"I bought this vehicle to use as a tow vehicle behind my motorhome as it can be "flat towed". Since there are relatively few vehicles that can be towed without using a trailer dolly I became interested in this model. I bought a 2014 LS2 in November, 2014 with 10,000 miles and paid just under $16K as a Certified Used Car from a local Chevrolet dealership. It has been a great vehicle for everyday use and has enough room to carry passengers and cargo. I average approximately 22 MPG in mostly in town driving and have gotten 30 MPG in all highway driving. I have had this vehicle for a year and have had NO issues with the vehicle. It has only had regular maintenance (oil change, tire rotation, etc.) in that time. If you are looking for a good solid vehicle at a great price that you can tow behind your RV then this is a good choice for you."

"The Captiva may seem boring or dull to some but it was just what I needed! After hopping from one suv to the next I finally decided on the Captiva. Sure it may be the most advanced suv but it does the job and looks good doing it. The radio and vehicle information system are easy to use as well as the steering wheel controls. Interior is nicely appointed and quite comfortable on long drives. The front passenger seat folds flat to accommodate items that are eight feet long! so far i've hauled salvaged doors and a stepladder. The four cylinder is adequate, don't expect this to be a racecar though it handles the car pretty well. I'm so far averaging 25.8 mpg in mixed driving. not bad. The crown jewel has to be the cargo area, flat floor even with the rear seats folded down the back seats fold easily and even recline.I can't tell you how many times it has come in handy. some cars have a 3-6 inch dip which is inconvienient. Reliability has been good. so far only 23,000 miles and no issues. I chose the Captiva because the powertrain etc. has been around for awhile and has been pretty trouble free. I wish all wheel drive could have been available with the four cylinder but I honestly didn't need it anyways."

"got my 2013 captiva for a little over $16k with only 11k miles on it. can fit quite a bit in the back with the seats folded down. i'm sure a rav4 or honda would have been at least $10k more than this vehicle. has 5 year certified warranty from dealer. so far so good..no issues. Love being able to put flex fuel in it. i commute 40 miles a day in it and also does good in bad iowa winters."
