I wanted to love it. I really did. My first new car.
Uses alot of fuel. Yes, it’s a big car. And it uses alot of fuel.
Had a new headlight: $2000. Other headlight went: $2000. Under warranty.
Cracked head at 50,000k. Did you read that right? Yes, you did. Under warranty.
Bluetooth unit wouldn’t work properly. After back and forth, back and forth countless times to the dealer; replaced. $2000. New unit still doesn’t work properly, just like the first one.
Purchased in January 2018 at Von Bibra.
Not recommended. The back down screen has no use. It is unclear, dark and no DVD player. When connected to the USB, didn't work while car is in motion. The camera is very vague and un clear and at night you can hardly see anything. The brakes doesn't work as efficiently, took it to the dealer they said nothing wrong . But compared to other cars it takes its time to stop. The technology is a joke...

LDV G10 Brake Failure
Our LDV G10 has only just clocked over 65,000kms, averaging around 20,000 easy kms per year, and has had to have ALL 4 Disc rotors replaced!. LDV claim its not under the 3 year 100,000km warranty and will not pay for it to be replaced. Very disappointed very expensive exercise ! Expect to be up for just over $1000 for this to be done.
The repairer was surprised as to how bad these rotors were for such a young car !
The thing is the parts are all factory and hence the high price. Yes these things are cheap BUT you will be stung in other ways.......
This is a valid claim from a company in Brisbane.
Issues! I hope it gets better!
We brought a G10 Executive 8 months ago hoping for the best, but acknowledging that it is a cheap car. However, I did not even drive a metre from the where the dealership drove it round to for me to pick up, when the issues started. The LCD screen went all fuzzy and dropped in and out. After waiting for an hour for the dealership to try and fix on the spot, we were left with no option but to take the car - had to drive from Mt Gambier back to Melbourne with a display screen that sometimes worked but most of the time didn't.
Had to then ...arrange a dealership in Melbourne and take it to them to be assessed as the Mt Gambier dealership wouldn't do anything about it. Took six weeks for the new screen to arrive from Melbourne. We thought that when the screen arrived that then would be a good time to get the towpack fitted as they weren't in Australia yet when we brought the car. Car goes in to get the towpack fitted and the whole entertainment pack replaced. Screen starts working and towpack wiring stops reverse sensors from working. Also found out that the camera on the left mirror was all blury - didn't see before because the screen wasn't working. After a whole day, and then a return trip and the car being at the dealership for 2 days with no resolution, LDV finally advises the dealer that the pins in one of the plugs for the towpack are round the wrong way from manufacturing. We wait another few weeks for parts to come in. Car reaches 5000km inspection. We take it in for the towpack wiring to be fixed and the inspection. Wiring fixed and mirror camera replaced but inspection finds it needs a new shock absorber - leaking. Advised that they have to order parts.... again! *sigh* Waiting 5 weeks for parts, and in the meantime, mirror camera starts going blurry again. Called dealership to find out where parts are - advised 21st December 2018. So we will be waiting approx. 11 weeks for the parts.
Chinese crap and poor Warranty
I owned an LDV G10 for about 18 months before disposing of it for more than a few reasons which I will discuss shortly.
Points of my con earn.
Starting with item 3 first’ quality ...Within the fist month of ownership I was unable to use either key as the car forgot the I’d leaving me late for my work. Stuff happens but this problem happened continually during my ownership. What really got me agitated was the dealership saying that it’s my fault as I over used the button and flattened the battery, in 1-2 months, iv had plenty of cars over time and have never needed to replace a battery once let alone several times within months of each event. Also the dealer charged me for the batteries! The worst issue with the van was the seat fabric, it showed wear within 2 months and wore completely through to the foam cushion after 5 months. That being bad enough both the dealership and LDV said it wasn’t covered by warranty because it was fair wear and tear WTH! I’ve had a combo van for 14 years and didn’t damage the fabric at all. LDV don’t honour the warranty period. Never buy one because I assure you they will weasel out of helping you as this approach seems to be the way they treat their customer. I even elevated this ti head office of importers and LDV told the general manager that it was fair wear and tear and they would not repair it period. I got rid of the vehicle mainly as I don’t trust the company or it’s dealership. Oh btw the salesman I purchased the vehicle through said they would sort the problem if I purchase another vehicle. Not happening! I could go on and on about issues such as the lcd screen for the AC fading and the background images disappearing , never fixed . shudder when the vehicle comes to a complete stop, it’s as if the van jumps into first gear when you stop and it surges forward. AM radio doesn’t have reception and the dealer never fixed as they said it’s fine and couldn’t fault it. I took them on a drive and showed them but it’s not a problem apparently. I listen to AM. Tyres pressure monitoring system continuously showed issues with rear left tyre being under inflated. As it turned out the front tyre was showed as rear. Wrong tyre displayed. Volume button and on off switch just fell off, no connection to the circuit board. Not fixed even when the vehicle had gone through 2 services and returned for fixing of issues. AC stopped working multiple times and then just started working on its own. Don’t polish the van yourselves as the paint is so thin you will go through it. I did and I’m a spray painter and have painted and polished heaps of cars. Dealership and manufacturer My first issue was with the pre delivery, the car had been on display on the yard and the interior was stained and even the ceiling was dirty. The ceiling was delaminating and this took over 12 months to replace. I had a small accident and the crash repairer found it hard getting parts from distributed. Car took 3 weeks to repair due to stock availability. My biggest complaint was that LDV left the dealer with the fabric issue and no way for them to do the warranty as they said I wore the seat out due to excessive use and even said I dint know how to get into a car properly. The response from the dealer manager to my complaints and that I was told by consumer affairs that the fabric was not fit for purpose and they would investigate was “ if you do that sort of thing you get nothing from us” In a nutshell obviously I’m not happy and feel they don’t back the product and deny responsibility for anything they can, I believe this comes from the manufacturer and goes down the line to the dealer. New spot motors could have done a lot more than they did and I purchased the vehicle from them. I’m their customer not LDV. This was a taste of my experience and not the full list of issues either. Choose another brand as you get what you pAy for from this mob. Truth hurts new spot & LDV lift your game period.
To start with the van needs servicing every 10 k, generally I am qouted that i will have my vehicle back within 2 hrs...usually it is 3 to 4 (I have just had the 40,000 km service completed. This took almost 5 hrs.) I am a tradie that's needs the vehicle on the road, when i asked about a loan car I was told that this is not an option. There is a dealer for LDV, 5 minutes down the road from me however i have to travel 30 minutes to the designated dealer ship for this service (not a tradie friendly van..)..the blue tooth continuously has issues.... It works fine for 10 minutes of a journey then stops working until I turn the van off at a set of lights, then start the van again...I do not believe this to be an issue with my phone..( I have a samsung s8+)...I am expanding my business however the next van i put on the road will NOT be a G10..( just a side note, I have spoken to other tradies that own a G10...they have the same blue tooth issue.) Not Happy..
