Holden Customer Service Charter

This charter sets out information and direction to our customers, dealers and employees on our service standards and feedback mechanisms. Holden encourages customer feedback to continuously improve the quality of services we provide.

Our Authorised Dealer Network

We carefully choose skilled and experienced motor trade professionals to become members of our authorised network of dealers and service centres.

Your Holden dealer should be your first point of contact, if your complaint relates to a concern with the operation of your vehicle or a service provided by your dealer that has not met your expectations. Where your dealer is unable to resolve the matter, please contact Holden Customer Care using any of the contact methods listed below.

Who are we and what do we do?

Our customer charter is part of our commitment to deliver a market leading customer experience. Whether you need to contact us regarding a concern with your Holden, have a question regarding your treasured classic or just looking for your nearest Holden Dealership, our skilled customer care team will provide quality consistent information, support, advice and assistance to help you.

We continually look to improve our response and processes, finding solutions for customers through our dealers.

We also understand the passion of owning a Holden and are equally passionate about being the market leader in customer experience.

  • do what they are meant to do;
  • be safe, durable and acceptable in appearance and finish;
  • be fit for any particular purpose that the consumer makes known to Holden; and

If Holden fails to meet these guarantees in relation to your vehicle, you may be entitled to a repair, replacement or refund from Holden under the Australian Consumer Law, depending on the circumstances. If there is a major failure, you are entitled to choose the remedy. If there is a minor failure, Holden can choose the remedy.

How can I find out about whether my Holden is subject to a Safety Recall or Customer Satisfaction campaign?

Please contact Holden Customer Care to request information about whether your Holden has been the subject of a safety recall or whether Holden has undertaken a customer satisfaction campaign for your type of vehicle and details of any field actions taken. You can also access the warranty transaction history for your vehicle by contacting Holden Customer Care.

Plus, three out of the four items below

  • Model Type i.e. Equinox

Once ownership verification has been completed, our customer care team will provide you with any information relating to a safety recall or customer satisfaction campaign, field actions and/or warranty transaction history relevant to your Holden - and can confirm if field actions have been completed in pdf version by email or by mail.
