Chevy Captiva?

Never heard of one before, but saw one for the fist time in the parking lot at work the other day. It basically looks like the last generation of the Saturn Vue, but with Chevy badges. Sorry didn't get any pics.

I think its based of / same frame as the Saturn Vue. I had an LTZ white in color as a rental car a few months ago. It was AWD, it was a nice little SUV, I thought it was way underpowered. Thought it had a four cylinder under the hood, but it was a V6. There still nice though.

Yep, only sold through fleet. There are tons of them running around here in PA. Here's the GM Fleet page:

i was gonna say, ive never seen them at a dealer but i have seen quite a few driving around... thought they were canadian only since many i see have canadian tags for some reason.

I saw one last weekend at a motel in Chambersburg. I was driving by and saw the front end, and I new what it was, but I couldn't believe there was one here. I drove back and snapped a few pics.

Couldn't get any from the front. Apparently they are a fleet only vehicle in the US. I guess their afraid they will compete to closely with the Equinox.

Not exactly. GM is selling every Equinox and other versions it builds, they're very popular. Selling them to fleets would mean less profit because fleets get discounts. So this goes to rental companies and the Equinox and platform mates are sold in dealers.

My woman was like "hey whats that, I like that SUV" (we were lookin for a new SUV at that time) so I pulled up close behind and saw "captiva" said wtf is that??? Called a dealer and asked and he said only sold in the states.....?

IDK man Im just stating what I read somewhere after I saw this one, and looked up info on Google. I just skimmed over it so take it with a grain of salt.
