Hoping this one is better

Holden Captiva LX 4x4 (Review date: 06 Apr 2014)
I have recently upgraded my work car from 2012 Captiva LX diesel to 2014 Captiva LTZ diesel. Found the 2012 version good on fuel and reasonable on performance although the engine sounded rough at times and was not particularly well mated to the gear box. Like the look of the car. On the 'need to improve side of the ledger' - seats not particularly comfortable (had many comments on this) and no air con vents for the middle or back row which was an issue on hot/cold days. Finally...quality control was not great. Had the engine taken out twice, the entertainment display replaced once, the drivers door external handle break off and several fittings fall off including one of the door seals. Now to the 2014 model. Body is virtually the same although they have skimped on some crome fittings and replaced with ugly plastic. The opening window in the tailgate has also gone. Unfortunately still no addition of vents to the middle and back rows (GM please see how Honda do this with the Odyssey). On the plus side - the seats are a bit more comfortable, the engine and gear box appear to be better mated making for a smoother quieter experience while maintaining performance. Too early to say whether quality control has improved.
