Best car I have ever owned

published

Just like to thank Isuzu . My Mux 7 seater was purchased from new in Dec 2015 it has just over 400000 on the clock has been serviced regular by my mechanic who i may add tells everyone how good of a car it is , he has also offered to buy it off me if i ever sell it . I am currently only on my 3rd set of tyres , just put the 2nd set of brake pads on last week . I work 5 days a week as a cleaner so the car is stopping and starting numerous times a day . It is so reliable and great to drive

The beast was purchased to be the tow motor infront of our new Jayco 19.5 outback caravan. The MUX is well renowned as a strong work horse for towing Caravans and trailers upto 3 tonne. With lockdown soon to be over ours is sitting waiting to commence a few years of travelling. My brother bought his a few years ago and has circled Australia and then some without missing a beat. Biting at the bit to go!!!

Purchased in at Isuzu Dealers for $64,000.

Makes life a lot easier when you are behind the wheel.

published

Used as an everyday driver it gives you the height to see around you and the room to pack a lot in.
Comfortable on long drives interstate and has the guts to tow a decent load.
Never had any issue with it, just a nice vehicle to drive.

New to 4WD Vehicle

published

Purchased Isuzu MUX February 2020 then covid struck. Now retired and was going to travel 2020.
Have only been able to do one longish run in it so far and fuel economy excellent. Could have travelled 1000k + on a standard tank.
Good to drive, comfortable and plenty of room.
No gizmos installed like other makes, so less to go wrong.
Servicing is every 15k and I have a fixed price listing supplied to me so I know exactly what I will be paying for the next 5 years
My only complaint would be the side mirrors do not fold in unless ignition is turned on. This could allow a bike rider to approach unnoticed prior to exiting.
Would recommend this vehicle.
Regards, M

Isuzu makes trucks not cars

published

Its a SUV truck, sounds like a truck, tows like a truck, trucks along all day. We have had since brand new and only trouble we had when first had it was the gearbox, it wouldnt change into top sometimes while doing 100kmph or could be in top while town cruising at 40-60kmph, fixed it by towing a 3t excavator 250km in 4th.

Purchased in for $48,990.

Be careful about warranty ending

published

Just offering some advice on my recent experience. But before I start, I am very happy with my 2015 mux. However when I had a problem with my SD card and my vehicle was 21 days past it’s warranty period, Isuzu Ute Australia would not cover it. My local dealer who I didn’t buy the vehicle from quoted me $1200.00 for a replacement. I ended up get a new replacement SD card from another dealer for $321. It took less than 5 mins to swap over and had all the latest sat nav updates. So it’s worth while getting your vehicle thoroughly checked before the warranty expires.

Reliable and affordable

published

Very impressed with the fuel economy and comfort of my new MUX. With all 7 seats up I can still fit my bugaboo bee stroller in the boot, the features and technology is great and the leather seats and red LED door lights are very stylish. We have had no troubles with this car and will not hesitate to buy another new one in 3 years time. great family car for a great price.

Purchased in at Coffs coast Isuzu.

Great allrounder

published

This car is used for for commuting and towing our van. We use it most days in a mix of city and country driving. We service this car as per Isuzu spec, but may do more oil changes as I would like to see the oil kept cleaner. We have had this car for nearly 40,000 and had no issues whatsoever. These are a very basic car, with few bells and whistles, but they have a very good engine. Towing the van (17 foot) returns 13l and, country driving, can get down a low as 7.5l. My wife drives this car mostly in a mix of city driving, with some country, and, has no regard for fuel economy, she gets 9.5 to 10l mostly.
