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.

Did not last 150000 unsatisfactory vehicle

published

I brought brand new isuzu mux with rusty rotor disc and the only answer i got is that is how it is with the cars kept outside the showroom.
Its good on diesel with factory faults the brand new mux i had was sold to me with mis aligned wheels that gave me lots of worries and disappointments
Finally after the 125000 km engine warranty it ended up. Leaking coolant from between cylinder head and engine block.

Great, with a few caveats.

published

Love the MUX. Overall a great car. Good view out, especially looking out the rear passenger side as a driver trying to see oncoming traffic.
The negatives...
We have a terrible wind whistle which we can’t find. Painful. Anyone have an answer??
Road noise is high.
Turbo lags a bit.
The rear storage unit is so tiny, almost worthless.
The ride seems to float along, bouncy is how I would describe it.
Would we buy again? Yes. If only we could stop the wind whistle!!

Best vehicle I've owned to date

published

This is by far the best vehicle I've owned to date, it's easy to drive, park and generally maneuver.
It comes with EVERYTHING without the ridiculous price tags.
We have found it has all round comfort, plenty of leg room, air vents throughout the back as well, DVD player for the kiddies.

good car BUT fuel consumption....

published

I like the mux, BUT 11.1 litres per 100 klms in rural region is no good. Previous Dmax averaged 8.6 l per 00 klms so I do not understand why this is so high. Driving style is unchanged and I cannot believe a bulbar is 2.5 litres per 00 more!
Other than that good vehicle at a reasonable price.

extremely happy

published

D Max lsm crew cab now 4 years old and cannot fault it. Initially a bit thirst but at 40000 kms now getting from 7.6 to 7.9 litres per 100 kms. Pull my 4.85 Sea Jay boat beautifully. Will definately buy another, maybe an MUX next time? If not an MUX will go for the LSU version, bit more bling. Very,very happy.

Great Tourer and Tow Rig

published

Comfortable tourer as it handled a trip out to central Queensland towing a 1000kg camper very well. Combined fuel consumption went up to 10lt per 100km when towing, on its own it regularly returns 8.4lt per 100km.

Support from the local dealer is OK, they seem to have little knowledge of the car, so lots of private research to learn some things such as headlight bulbs that are pathetic from factory. Factory suspension is comfortable but does not like too much of a load, so upgraded suspension was fitted before to long.

Engine bay is a little tight so room for a big dual battery and second fuel filter is limited, easy solution is having the battery mounted on a draw system in the back.
