2014 year common issues?

Post by VintageIron41 » Mon Jan 07, 2019 4:19 pm

Hello and thanks for taking time to read this.

Not sure if this is the correct area to post this but it is a general question of sorts. Bought a 2014 with L77 on the way being shipped, what things are common to the Caprice PPV that are potential issues, particularly to the 2014? Mileage is 122k. Govdeals purchase, seller offered no service history, body looks good, interior was torn apart looking for contraband I suppose.

This is my first Holden Caprice, so any tips are greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

DOD failure is the only big one , motor mounts are also a issue

Maybe take the VIN to your local dealer and get a GMVIS report on it to see any recall work was done it. If the steering rack has not been replaced get that done.

Also check the cooling fans for wobble as they are getting replaced free as well.
