Hi all,

Took a Captiva 5 with the 2.2lt diesel for a test and it surprised me, it bleep s over my hilux for power and torque. I know torque and power curves arent the be all and end all but it feels considerably more powerful.

Has anyone towed with the new motor. I'm planning to tow my 1.2t boat and would like some opinions.

Cheers Wilko

Have a mate with the Captiva diesel and you will have no probs at all towing 1.2 tons..

Have you driven the Hyundai Sante Fe 2.2 diesel ?? now this is a cracker of an engine!!

Thanks Gronk,

Took the Sante Fe and agreed it goes well but SWMBO like the look of the Captiva (and itll be her butt sitting in the driving seat) so itll be "her" decision lol.

Cheers Wilko

Hi Glenok,

Didnt test drive it cause the bride chooses on looks. Sounds ok though.

I would not put a Captiva and a Hi Lux in the same ring. A Captiva is in fact a Dawoo from South Korea with a Holden badge. I hi lux is made by Hino trucks in Japan.

Perhaps you might like to do more research on Captiva problems on the internet.

Hi Graham,

Ive read the probs but that was series one. New motor and design in series 2. Lets hope they've got rid of the bugs.

I wasn't putting the Hilux in the same ring as the Captiva as the Hilux wouldn't keep up. She is lucky to pull the skin off a custard.

Cheers Wilko

Make sure the captiva doesnt pull to the left when driving. My wifes uncle just bought one and is having some issues, none major but a couple of niggly things. But the main one is the pulling of steering. Its had wheel alighnments, wheels moved around, tyres spun on rims and still pulls to the left, and from what he has told me its actually a common issue with them ?? (only going by what he said he has read on the net). He has towed his boat with it which was nearing 2t and said he was quit happy with the performance of it. He has only done this twice as he has a 100 series turbo cruiser to do it normally, generally though he's happy with it.......

Yes they are made in various places around the world- but the ones that come into Australia come from the Thailand plant as far as I know.

We have just taken delivery of a new Mazda CX5 with the 2.2lt diesel for the wife. Test drove a few of these AWD diesel vehicles but ended up going the Mazda ,as it was newer ,but also having 2 other mazda's have always had a good reliability. The drive is great . The motor puts out 129kw and 420nm,similar to a D4D prado in power figures,so has got more than enough getup n go.
I have a diesel prado [1kze] which we use for the towing duties, i wish it had the go of the new Mazda.I will see how it goes with a smaller trailer when we can get a towbar for it,but for the bulkier jayco camper i will stick with the prado.
