So many good features but terrible problems

published

Bought imax at 57,000km and it's been fantastic. Run it on 98 fuel. All of a sudden the power just cuts out when I've been making a turn. Scary. Starts again and away it goes. 84,000km all.of a sudden the check engine light came on. Used all the oil and has low power. Mechanic is baffled. Computer said crankshaft sensor and some other sensor. Both replaced. Still coming up with same computer messages and still has no get up and go. Help!

Lucky we have a great mechanic who dealt with an equally matched engineer. New timing chain $1600 later problem fixed. Happy days bus is all good again.

Clutch Problems with 75000km

published

75000km and the clutch is gone, have been told by Hyundai this is wear & tear cost $7050.00 big and lots of room but never again I am going to have an Hyundai. Reading the forums it looks like it is hit and miss if you purchase a Hyundai. Do your homework.

Exceeded Expectations

published

I was dreading having to make the transition to a people mover until I found the Imax. It powers up the hills and handles the corners with ease. Turns on a dime and tows without a whimper. Tyres are expensive to replace. Loving the full sized seats throughout. All it.

Very Good Choice would buy another

We are looking for cruise control included and have not looked at this van because it does not consider driver comforts.

We hired one for a day from Airlie Beach and it was great for us, so much so that I was considering buying one.

If you take out the back seats, would it be big enough to fit a single mattress in the back?

Perfect Car!

published

Reliable Car with no huge mechanical problems. It's abit sluggish going up hills as we have the petrol version. Would be better in diesel. Lots of space. Huge boot. The seats don't fold up flat and only 3 anchor points. No rear air bags either. It cost around $100 to fill up the tank.
I love the space, the aircon can be set differently for the passengers at the back. So many compartments to store things, in the doors. Beautiful Car.
It was abit expensive, it only came with 3 anchor points for car seats. so we have to install a crab bar for the last row of seats and the last row of seats don't fold completely down or move.

Imax work and play

published

Having driven Kia, Mitsubishi and chrysler Voyageur, I am extremely happy with the IMAX, Plenty of room. Told to buy the diesel by the dealer, better performance, no problem on the highway hills, does not miss a beat. Great family vehicle

Only faults in my book, barely hear the indicator, and told that the way it is, no Cruise control, would have liked the 9th bench seat in front, and an inbuilt navman would be good

Other than that absolutely fabulous, most practicle vehicle I have owned, and 2 of my other cars are mercs
Reliabilty, room and performnce, lots of space for luggage behind the back seat to accomodate many more suitcases than my voyaguer
lack of cruise, navman and extra quiet indicator

Its a weapon

published

We have had our iMax for about 1 year now and it is brilliant. First trip it carried 8 people to the snow, with food and skiis! It is amazing how much stuff you can get in the boot - unlike many other 8 seaters which take a pram and that is about all. The turbo diesel engine pulls well and carries you effortlessly down the freeway at the speed limit quietly. When pushed it will even climb the snowy mountains with ease. It also pulls our caravan up steep hills (not fast but it gets there).

My only niggle is that the little plastic bits fall off - you know those bits that cover screws etc. It does not have too many bells and whistles. It is a big vehicle that carries heaps and plenty of go!
Overall build quality and powerful engine

Mine is a diesel also - 18 months on (now over 5 yrs old) and still going strong. So smooth and car like compared to the Ford Transit minibus I drove recently!

60000problems

published

We had one of these cars as a taxi we had high hopes for it however at 60000klms we had heaps of trouble with injectors turbo and general motor probs. We had another taxi owner ring us and he had the same kind of problems. We had to take it off the road after 1 year it was costing too much in repairs.
Heaps of luggage space and people space
too expensive

Was it not covered by warranty? because it was a taxi? also what did you end up using instead? how is that going.

I'm using this 2009 van around town and sometimes on the highways. Diesel & auto just under 9L/100km

published

Bought this new in 2009 and have done 72000km so far. Not one problem! No wonder they give you 5 years warranty. Probably the best car/van I ever owned.Very responsive engine and good 5 speed auto.
Would recommend this car to anyone that needs the space but still with a fantastic economi!

Fantastic for the large family

published

We love our new Imax, we have an auto diesel, still has plenty of power and accomodates our family perfectly. Plenty of interior room and exceptional boot space. Very comfortable to drive and we added a 10" DVD, cruise control, tinted windows and a tow bar to make it more like our previous people mover.
Love the space, fuel economy, design, everything about it. Even my hubby loves it - which is great. Would highly recommend this vehicle to large families.
Haven't found anything we aren't happy with.
