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

Ticks all the boxes for a great 4x4 ute

When I started looking for a new Ute, I explored all brands and did extensive research. What lead to the purchase of the DMAX Xterrain was the design, the towing capacity and 3L turbo diesel, the value for money (much less than popular utes such as the Ranger) and inclusions. The x terrain comes with extras such as premium leather and red stitching on the dash and doors to complement, the roller cover for the tray, the Moulded seats etc.

I have had for 6 months now and can say I love my Ute, very easy to drive, great on the beach and dirt tracks, hard wearing and looks great. Show details

Ute Tray Leaks

I bought the X terrain because it had the lockable roller cover, not once was I advised it was not waterproof and to expect so much water in the tray that you cannot store any items in the tray. I have rung Isuzu and they say it is fit for purpose. I would not have bought this model of car, I would have bought a cheaper model with another cover if I was advised of this. I had an older DMAX and it never failed and I regret buying this car now. Very disappointing and do not recommend the car to anyone who wants to put things in the tray without getting wet\mouldy.

Isuzu confirmed it does leak in two places but wouldn't fix it. Show details

Some Issues

Used for everyday use and a few weekends away on trails. Generally handles well both on and off road. We have had a few issues with the ute so far since getting it mid 2021. There were some computer issues that took a few days at the service centre to sort out. The paint is very thin and a few spots of rust have appeared on the bonnet after presumably a couple of stone chips. Now it has just thrown a belt for the second time in the last 2 weeks, even just after having it in for it’s 30k service. Not sure if this is caused by a more serious engine issue just yet. Show details

Error lights on dash

I use cruise control in all my cars everyday for safety of speeding.
Also I purchased this Ute for its 5 star safety rating.When it rains Or has been raining I get 3 error lights on the dash which disengages the cruise and crash midagation due to the clean windscreen needing cleaning ?? My Ute has 2,000klms on it and this has happened 25 times.
Today another error for DPD ,when I speak to Isuzu they say they all do this .What a load of rubbish. I did buy 5 star rated car with cruise control not to be able to use it..
Pathetic to say the least,I have lodged a complaint with Isuzu Australia and booked the car in to be looked at.I expect then to tell me they all do this again which consumer affairs will be contacted.

Love it

Great, smooth drive, feels like I’m driving a sedan not a 4WD. Comfortable seating. The only problem I have had so far is the engine light came on the second day of owning, rang Service Center booked in for next morning, engine light had gone out but staff were more than happy to take a look at it anyway. Has not missed a beat just love it. The biggest problem I have now is trying to stay out of it. Show details

Such a great vehicle, suits the whole family

At the moment the car is a partial daily driver, with the intent to take travelling later in life around Australia and also use as a ute for lugging stuff around like its original purpose is ! Has only just had its first service and there is nothing major to complain about. A lot of people complain about the safety features, but I have no issues with these. The only thing that i could say is a bit of a hassle is that there are not enough tie downs in the tub and the plane sale and hard cover hinder the length of items you can put in the tub itself. The car drives and feels so smooth. Extremely happy with the purchase. Would i buy it again ? YES Show details

how do you stop water leaking into the tub through the roller shutter leaking.

Purchased our dmax xterrain 2022 a week ago and I cannot open the roller shutter lid on the tray. The dealer showed me how the pull the handle and depress the button but I just don't have enough strength. Has anyone else had this problem and how did you fix it?

Position your hand over the button and use the bottom of your palm at the base of your thumb to press down

I am traveling around northern Australia and have found that many sealed roads and highways are not on the sat nav. Can this be upgraded?
