Great vehicle, just as good as their rivels

Love my Dmax. Im on my second one now ( upgraded) and I wont drive anything else! They're just as good if not better as there rivels starting with 'H'. I have never had any faults with either of mine. No DPF issues as long ( take it for a highway drive once a week for at least 30mins, that should prevent that). The only thing I will say is that the dmax has a turning circle of a road train, but they are a great ute Show details

DMax all the way

Bought the DMax before I retired to tow the 2.5ton van. Bought the extra cab (suicide doors), steel tray and put a checkerplate canopy on it. Had it 75,000km now and find it perfect for towing. Sits on around 15L/100km at 100km/hour. I can highly recommend them for this purpose. Great daily drive as well. Look around any caravan park and you will see many DMax and MUX towing. Show details

Buy Pre DPF or Petrol, don't buy ISUZU

The car itself has been decent up until now and a DPF sensor has rendered it useless. After sales support and servicing has always been subpar. Two week wait until they can take 15 minutes to fit a sensor.
Faulty turbo, first replaced, second one making the same noise but they say it's okay this time. Rubbish body mounts, refused warranty because of a GVM upgrade besides others with a GVM upgrade getting them replaced by warranty. Others experience body cracks and AC lines breaking. Buy a pre DPF car or petrol. Show details

Maybe the updated model will iron out issues

Had immobiliser issues and keyless entry issues within the first 3 months of ownership. Saftey swerving and braking is dangerous on country roads. Looks really nice and drove nice apart from these issues. Ended up selling and going back to an older model as we intend to travel remotely and don't need unnecessary electrical issues. Show details

Dangerous

Great car however the safety beeps and over corrective steering is very dangerous. Thinking of selling at getting older one without this letdown. Show details

Dont believe Isuzu false promises on delivery times

I paid a deposit in November - told to expect delivery late April. May came - no ute. Then June, July both promised but now its mid August I'm told its not even built yet. Either Isuzu Japan lies to Isuzu Australia or Isuzu Australia lies to their dealers. No business can be that far out of control with their basic supply processes. To make it worse, 2 emails to Isuzu Australia have gone unanswered. I feel sorry for their dealers. Wish I'd ordered a Toyota. They were more honest about delivery times. Show details

Buyers beware!

Had a 2015 dmax 4x4 car was regularly serviced and well looked after, first two weeks of ownership the fuel pump failed and had to be replaced under warranty, 12 months out of warranty and the engine failed completely and had to be replaced had only done 130,000km's, Isuzu provided absolutely no compensation as it was outside of warranty, absolute pain to deal with. Then the rear diff failed 2 weeks after having the engine replaced (this is a known problem with the Dmax) Isuzu also wanted no part in helping out on this occasion. I would stay away from this brand unless you want a poor product and bad customer service. Show details

DPF problem, no warranty support

2021 model, DPF problem after 45k. Isuzu Australia looked for excuses for 4 weeks, refused warranty. Their excuse is some "contaminants" in the bottom of fuel tank. Anyone can be in the same position. I will never buy from Isuzu again! Show details
