Nothing to write home about

published

I brought my MUX early 2017 (Auto) after previously owning 2 D Max's, (Manuals). If I don't start the car at least once in 2 to 3 days it takes about a dozen pushes of the start button. Transmission lousy. Trading at the end of the year.

Test drove

published

I took an LST model for a test drive, I was not too impressed with the engine noise after started the car, it took like 15 minutes of riding for the engine noise to settle, during this 15min time I felt driving our old toyota diesel fj40 1981.

I think the car suspension and steering needs to be reviewed as I felt the car too loose, was not a good feeling taking a corner or trying to steer around.

I felt a lag on the engine response when you press the pedal, but once you are around 80kms response feels ok, but not great.

The finishes of theninterior are pretty good and dont feel cheap.

The equipment of the car is pretty good but I would sacrifice equipment for a better handling as the fortuner (tested and buying it).

fuel economy

published

My 2014 MUX has been a pleasure to drive. I bought it when I first retired and have only just gone over 30,000kms.
Unfortunately the fuel consumption has increased after each of the last two services at the dealer recommended service centre in a northern Perth suburb.
After the last service I also noticed a whistling noise when taking my foot off the gas (without breaking). Also the digital fuel indicator seems to go from 190km range to 0km range.

Nagging faults

published

I did my checking and could not fault from other reviews. Vehicle ran ok for the first eight months. Nagging problems with fuel gauge jumping about and blue tooth not holding my phone but learnt to live with. Then the problems started, fuel sensor packed up dealer knew straight away what was wrong. Two weeks later had to be towed in again. This time, fingers crossed they found it, rusted wiring loom to the fuel rail. Took three weeks to get fixed. Two weeks after getting car back broke down again. Third time in eleven weeks, been off the road for four of those. Told its the same problem the new fuel sensor has failed. Fingers crossed it is now fixed.

Is let down by the GPS

published

The car drives OK but when you pay $50+K for a car you expect a GPS that works. The one in the MUX LST has maps that are out of date and they want $150 for an update. Even then, you can only get maps that are at least 12 months out of date. Not acceptable to me.

MU-X

I've had an issue with my 2015 MUX. The radio turns off and on by itself and the screen is bland although when it turns back on the Isuzu logo appears. It is stuck on one channel and the only function that works if the volume. I am presume the SD card is faulty?

MU-X 2nd Generation 4WD 3.0L Diesel LS-T (2017-2022)

Hi,
We get our new 2022 MU-X LST 4 x 4 in August.
We bought the vehicle to be our tow vehicle for our caravan.
Our caravan (Essential C Class Tourer) comes with a camera on the back of it and with a Safety Dave, SD-0109 Rear view LCD monitor for inside the car. Needs to be hard wired.
We know that in the past there was a module you could get installed to have the caravan camera connect to your MU-X screen inside the car.
So my questions are:
1. Can you plug in like normal with your caravan plug to the car and automatically connect with the screen inside the car from the camera on the caravan?
2. If you cant do 1, can you fit a module that will allow you to do this?
3. Has anyone done this to their MU-X LST 2022 model?
3. If you have what parts did you need and do you have photos please?
Appreciate what ever feedback you can give me.
Cheers, John.
