3 months and counting. What a joke. You buy a new ute so you dont have problems. Not happy
Hi i haven't even had my ute for more than two years yet and it been sitting at the dealer for the last 3 months. It continues to go into limp mode when you first start it in the mornings. They still cant give me answers to why this is occurring. I can't believe that with technology they have these days, you would think that the problem could be found. Izuzu Australia haven't even had the courtesy to call me back. It shows that they just want your money when you purchase a vehicle. But when there's a problem they dont care if it jeopardises you're likely hood. I really on my ute. But i can't really on izuzu

Before 1000km fantastic - after 1000km terrible
Bought the MY18 LS - T dual cab two months ago. Up until 1000 km it was fantastic. It felt as though you were floating on a cloud as you drove down the road. But exactly at 1000 km the ride became terrible. It felt like you were driving down a corrugated dirt road on smooth highways. The vibration was felt through the steering and brake pedal as well as the cabin as a whole. When you spoke it sounded full of vibration. Isuzu service centre looked at the vehicle and blamed the Ironman bull bar fitted at delivery without fitting the heavy duty ...suspension. Isuzu said i had to wait one month for them to look at it and so I booked it in. They did the 3,000 km service but didn't fix any of the warranty defects. I had to book it in for them to order parts and fit them; this will take another month's wait as they are far too busy. So I'm left with a vehicle that is not pleasant to drive because of the vibration, body rolls around corners and under brakes. It's also causing me knee problems on long drives because of the vibration. Toyota service are never too busy to attend to your vehicle up here in Cairns but Isuzu are just too busy. I bought this DMax because it got great reviews and reviewer said they had great customer service; but I now know you can't believe all the reviews. In hindsight I should have got a Hilux. I'm getting an independent assessment of the bullbar and suspension and will up date this review if it improves the performance of the vehicle. But for now I would not recommend the MY18 Dmax.
Worst car I have ever owned
Been back close to 20 times for various faults and most of them
Still have not been fixed . Worst choice of car I have ever made . Almost 70000 on it and have had nothing but issues with Isuzu . Every time I take my car for a service it comes back with damage to it . At what point can you get your money back for a lemon car ? A car worth $56k to buy is apparently worth under 30k 18 months later and made to be my problem and loss . Please don’t make the same mistake as I did people . Fuel economy is false in there stats also . Buy a ranger or lux
Best thing I've bought.
Yep, it's basic. Yep, it drives like a truck with a rattly diesel and long throw gearbox but I actually love these aspects. It has heaps of space, is SUPER fuel efficient and tough as nails. Whilst down on torque on paper, in real world it sits in the torque curve really well. Resale value is great and it's easily modified. Despite a diff lock it's a beast off-road. Downsides? Notchy going into third gear (they all are), standard suspension is the bare minimum (all modern utes) and the stereo is only average. I'm really grasping at straws no...w... I absolutely love the ute. Buy it. You won't be disappointed. UPDATE Had it 12 months now and still love it. Gearbox still notchy into 3rd from 2nd, but if you double the clutch into 3rd it's not a problem at all. Great fuel economy and torque. The seats are less than comfortable any trip over half an hour, but there is heaps of space in the cab for tall people. Still happy...
