Worst mistake ever made

published

Truck is a 2019 NPR 165/190 that cost $86000. Wife won't even travel in it. If you hit a small bump you are bounced around like a rag doll. If you hit a middle size bump you get shot into the air until your seat belt bites into your shoulder and then throws you back down so hard it jars your lower back. And look out if you blink and hit a big pothole.....you and the truck get airborn. It is very, very dangerous. Especially when you are towing a trailer. Isuzu have known about this fault for years and really dont care ! I will NEVER buy another Isuzu and would NEVER recommend them to anyone.

Purchased in March 2019 at Isuzu Dealers for A$86,000.00.

ISUZU FRR 110

published

Bought this from Brisbane ISUZU in 2017. Warranty ended 16/05/19 and truck injector, defuser and catalyst needed to replaced on 20/06/19. Dealer quoted $6k, and no assistance from ISUZU. These are like Chinese toys and made only to last till the warranty expires. Truck done only 35k

Purchased in November 2017 for A$85,000.00.

Very disappointed. Motor blew at 75,000 miles. The exhaust system has been replaced. Paid $60,000 for the truck five years ago and I have put another 20,000 in repairs. Do not buy this piece of junk.
No power.

Old trucks are better

published

I've an American truck with 834,000ks on it doesn't miss a beat. I've also an Isuzu tipper new with 36,000ks and I'm waiting for yet another lift home after bringing it in for a minor problem. I wont buy new again. Old trucks are better, crazy but true.

Never buy an Isuzu NPR, the worst money ever spent

published

We have 9 of the Isuzu NPR's in our fleet 2011-2018 models. They are the worst ever. Never buy one, even if they are half price. Constantly in the shop for repairs. The DEF system constantly needs repairing. The down time on these trucks is unacceptable.

The worst truck money can buy

published

I owned a 2008 W4500 Isuzu truck, I can't tell you how problematic this truck was, please if you need a work truck not a truck that creates jobs for GMC and Isuzu technicians don't buy it. I won't even look at one when I drive pass one now.
Regen problem, ABS, all kind of little and big problem, I can show you invoices after invoices, Isuzu trucks are the worst have made.

Disappointed

Company I work for supplied me a 2015 450 medium 185, I should have test drove before as my previous truck was a Hino FD (2005). The 450 is terrible in all categories, rock hard suspension (3/4 of gross load), wind noise through door seals (dealer has had two attempts at fixing), handling, only has to look at a slight incline/hill at hwy speeds and dies, (so the B double that you just over took returns the favor), cheap poorly fitting plastics everywhere and driver seating position not good for long distances. The Hino was 10 years older and still was way ahead of this junk.
Do yourself a favour and avoid like the plague.

My first ever truck, not what I expected

Lots of issues in new NLR model, terrible warranty terms, never buy Isuzu

published

I brought brand new truck for more than $45000 in September 2013. Warranty 100000 KM/3 years. Still it is under 60000 KM & under 3 years but refused to fix problem of fuel injectors & DPD. First dealer charged $770 just to clean the filter than same problem with in 5 days. Lost 14 days income and had to go private repairer & paid $2000 to fix the DPD problem. This is my third brand new Isuzu Truck. I had minor problems in previous models but the this last one is the worst. How fuel injectors gone bad in 60000 km? Very expensive to fix anything. DPD is a big headache waste of lots of time and diesel when the system ask you to do manual regeneration. Will never buy ISUZU truck.

2010 Isuzu NPR HD

published

I am impressed with how little it costs to service my NPR compared to the international that I traded. It was a great truck for me, but so is the Isuzu and it gets better MPG! I love it and it has over 200,000 miles and is still going strong!
MPG, low cost to maintain in comparison to my other truck
I didn't get it sooner

my NPR 400 is the best

If you ever buy a new isuzu make sure you BUY the extra warranty unlike me now i have to pay $ 9000 - $ 10000 to buy an exchange unit and have it installed FFS
(2004 nqr 450 170hp) Good top end speed, comfortable to drive, good turning circle
5 yr old truck 195000 klms and injector pump's camshaft has lost its hard facing which fragments of metal went through the pump. $ 7000 - $8000 to get a reconditioned exchange 2nd hand pump or $10000 - $11000 for a new one. Ridiculous how a pump is worth 1/5 of the price of a new nqr 450 cab chasis ($55000). NOT happy Isuzu as this truck is serviced within the service intervals stated in book. Hino is looking good.

Isuzu warranty is a wast of time. They are incapable of fixing anything. I gave uo after 3 years. Do it yourself or pay someone competent.

Hi, I have a 2009 NLR 200 Tipper which when under load or just towing it starts blowing the coolant into the header tank. Have taken it into the Isuzu dealer 4 time and each time they say theyve fixed it but when I go to use it the radiator get pressured and blows the coolant I to the header tank! I have had a mechanic say it could be a faulty EGR cooler, Isuzu say they have tested the EGR but could it still be the problem?? Have had everything done besides replacing the EGR, radiator taken out, cleaned and tested, all gaskets replaces, thermostat replaced 3 times, all cooling system taken apart and checked.! Now I dont know what it could be and Isuzu say they dont know, how could this be?
