Tweed Heads Isuzu
I hate having to do this but here goes..... I took my Dmax in for its first service. 15000km. $350. Tweed Isuzu had it for 2 hrs. During the service they called me and said that there was unusual wear on the inside of the front right tyre and it needed to be rotated and balanced $50. I declined and told them I have a Brother in the tyre business and I'll get him to look at it. He's also a mechanic. That night I went to see him and we put the vehicle on the hoist to check the tyres and there was nothing wrong. We then noticed that the sump plug ...has never been removed and the oil filter hadn't been changed. We checked the oil and it hadn't been changed either. Very disappointing. I now have to contact Fair Trading NSW to see where I stand. Tweed Isuzu is also owned by Lismore, Ballina and Gold Coast Isuzu, The Frizelle Group. I can't contact anyone til Monday. I love the vehicle but it appears I bought it from a very disreputable company. Update: Isuzu Tweed contacted and I spoke to the Service Manager Bart. I told him what had happened and asked him to enquire and call me back with a thought out response. He said he trusted their head mechanic who assured him it was serviced correctly. I emailed him the photos I had taken of the dirty oil, unchanged original oil filter & untouched sump plug and he agreed that the mechanic had lied. He asked if he could have the vehicle back and it would be done properly. I agreed and did the 120km and half a day loss of work, it appears that the service was done correctly. I asked for the amended service records which I was told would be emailed to me the next day. As expected that hasnt happened. It is my opinion that the margins are so small for Dealers that the way they make money is on servicing, the way they increase that profit margin is to cut as many corners as possible, if the vehicle fails they do the repair and make money off the manufacturer warranty. The lesson learned is NOT TO USE DEALERS FOR SERVICING, especially the Frizelle Group. I hope this review helps you.
Isuzu Dmax tray back ute
I have found the Dmax to be very user friendly, it handles very well, is quieter than other Utes I've driven. What a great performer, with more than enough power to get the job done, while being very economical. It has a very user friendly clutch, with hill assist.
I'm currently achieving just under 7-1 ltrs / 100 ks combined, which is the best economy of any ute I've owned. Servicing at 10,000 ks intervals. The engines emissions are very low.
plenty of legroom, a number of storage pockets throughout the cabin. Easy accessible cup holders f...
