Holden Captiva Series One recall – the recall affects both Holden Captiva 5 and 7.

A large number of series one Holden Captiva SUVs are being recalled to fix a fault identified in the ignition system.

Affecting both the Holden Captiva 5 and 7, the vehicles being recalled were all built 2007 and 2010.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission recall notice saying that a wear condition in the ignition key cylinder actuator trigger may allow the vehicle starter motor to crank the engine if the key is left inside the ignition key cylinder and in the “OFF” position, while the vehicle is parked.

If, when the vehicle is parked, the ignition key is left in the ignition cylinder, the manual transmission is left in gear and the park brake is insufficiently applied, the vehicle may move unintentionally when the starter motor cranks the engine.

Holden will write to all affected customers to notify them of required action.
