Captiva's sprouting everywhere
Guys, I'm seeing them left and right nowadays! I think GM is sitting on a cash mine! And the smart ones likes us are seeing the value in buying them! I'm a big fan of owner's forum's and there's very little (for now) Captiva Sport online traffic... Hopefully more owner's will come on board and we can really make a great resource here!

What the heck are these Captivas? Other than the threads here, I've never seen or heard of them. Are they replacing the Equinox or something?Clint (TX) 2001 Silverado LS 4.8L auto 2wd ECSB [GARAGE]

From what I've heard, the Saturn Vue was made in a Mexico assembly plant. When Saturn tanked (which was the biggest dumbass decision GM ever made to close them) that was it. Then GM decided to bring that last generation Vue back with some modern touches and a Chevy badge as the Captiva Sport. Overseas, the Captiva is a regular production model you can buy....her in USA....it's fleet only....but I think you can buy a real one in Canada.....Needless to say, it's a great car for the price. Chevy is making them for rental use, so the other CUV's and SUV's in GM's fleet aren't used for rental use...and no large depreciation because of that.... All I know is my wife got a 2012 with 25k miles, 2 year warranty and all the toys for 19K... that's too good a deal to pass up!

They're everywhere now because we recycle our rental fleet every 1.5-2 years.
You will see a ton of owners out there soon. Whether they are the crowd that will join a forum will be another question.Charles 02 z71 Cladded Avy
