Would never buy one again
The remote has packup and I have to wait up to 6 weeks to come from China. Also the material on the automatic bar is coming off and the sterring wheel is the same after 100,00KLms.The cost of the remote will be over $600,
The Paint job is not very good either

LDV G10 after nearly 2 years.
LDV G10.. I was suspect.. LOTS.. having 25 years of vans from early terrible Ford vans to better Toyota HI Ace & SBV.. 10 years with a Ford Transit mid roof Diesel etc. The Fact these were Chinese.. Leyland Daff Vehicle do get past it.. as the engine is as I understand it... Nissan Diesel, gearbox Ford, Suspension partly GM, Electrics Bosch.. and body design.. (I suspect was actually Holden By Design.. but fact check all that somehow). .. The van I bought was the Diesel Auto.. barn doors excellent for minor pallet loading.. then dual side doors..... Seat for driver and often forgotten passenger are very comfortable and material heavy duty. Stereo , cruise, el windows, central lock.. etc all good.. WHAT SUCKS is the blue tooth phone mic.. for petes sake LDV fix this up.. We'll be paying for a private installer to improve that.at $160.. so be it. Overall IT IS THE BEST VAN WE HAVE EVER OWNED.. We brought a 2nd one 14 days ago May 2021 from LDV Campbelltown.. traded in our other van a VW Caddy Maxi diesel auto. Again.. the best van we have had. END OF Story..

Ldv g10 2014
The single worst vehicle I have had the displeasure to own, 137000kms on the vehicle, a.c doesn't work and haven't since just over 100,00 KMs, the rear main seal has let go allowing it to drip oil, took to my mechanic and was advised the entire gearbox needs to be removed to fix this, the cruise control works when it wants to as does the Bluetooth, it periodically shows an error code for the front left wheel then this code will clear on its own, and just today the rear door has decided to stop locking which is great on a van with work tools ins...ide, also the front brake rotors failed at 100k and needed to be replaced not a major issue but still poor,the rear window wiper stopped working the other day then two days later decided it would work again, my advice would be to buy a second hand HiAce. These seem like good valve but from what I can tell within a couple of years you will regret it.

Great vehicle. Over 90000km so far!
Great vehicle for the price, yes there is a bit of turbo lag but I haven't had any issue except a broken spring in the seat, dealer replaced the entire seat, no questions asked. I tow every day with it, not light trailers but heavy trailers. I have only replaced the tyres at 70000km and the brakes I haven't touched yet. After reading these other reviews I have no idea how they go through 9 tyres and 3 sets of brakes, they must have no idea how to drive or maintain their vehicle. Dealers have been Great, this is a brilliant vehicle, ignore th...e other negative reviews, I have nothing but praise for the vehicle except the turbo lag which they do need to sort out. On 91000kms so far and still drives like it did on day one. Look after your vehicle and it won't give you issues. Oh yeah I have only every used 91 octane fuel and still runs well.

BE WARNED!!!!! You get what you pay for.
LDV G10 is really a cheap vehicle but it's NOT value for money. And, yes it is a "death trap". Turbo lag leaves you exposed after a brake-go situation, is a major fault. Heater and air con controls are offset for left side driver position and you have to take your eyes off the road in order to adjust. That's bad juju if you on a freeway. Instrument cluster blinds you if the sun is in the wrong position. (Because of the shiny chrome around the dials) other faults are: Flimsy paint job, bluetooth that hardly works, weak rubber seals, and a ve...hicle warranty from LDV that's not worth the paper its written on. This vehicle maybe ok for shopping trips and "kiddie" runs but as a delivery/tradie vehicle it's a failure. The dealers don't want to know you because of the small profit margin or so it seems. It seems to drive well and it's very economical if you drive it easy like a granny but fact is you push it a bit hard it's likely to fall apart on you. You want a cheap vehicle? Buy one but don't complain afterwards. (LDV G10, diesel auto) Reg as a good carrying vehicle. 67.000 over 2 years since new. Serviced as per the book and on time.

Please read these reviews and heed warning. This car is not worth considering.
I'm writing this on behalf of a close friend who does not write reviews, and is not mechanically minded. I'm a mechanic and he's contacted me to ask advice during all his issues. In my view this is a shocking vehicle and even worse is the after-purchase support from LDV (or complete lack of).
When first purchasing the vehicle brand new in 2017 he was surprised how much Van you get for your money!! (That should be the first warning sign I guess...)
He bought the van to use as his work vehicle with mainly just tools in the boot and occasionally ...

Worst car on the planet
Just over 100000km on the car gone through 9 tyres, entry and start unit 4 brake replacements air con compressor failed 3 key replacements plus man more problems. And looks like the engine has failed today. Stay away from this peice of garbage. Did i mention i'v had it towed 4 times now.

A complete deathtrap, but I have to use it, as I have no other choice!
Still having numerous faults with this particular vehicle, the dealership never got back to me about replacing the loose seat after the 5000km service over a year ago, still denied any faults (and I gave them a long detailed list in writing), except for a squeaking drivers door hinge, and a broken glove box door, which actually broke on my way to have serviced (turned out to be a filter of some kind which dislodged, and was fixed).
The inability to accelerate, at anytime after applying the footbrake, heavy vibration and restricted access to p...ower from the engine to the wheels, and feeling like somthing is seized, or about to, harsh vibration coming through the floor pan, pedals, seat and steering wheel, still not validated. Nor was a problem with (at the time) intermittent vague/excessive movement in the power steering, a loose drivers seat, a 2-3 second delay in changing gear from reverse to drive (which left me effectively stalled, and would even roll backwards if on a hill). There are many other issues, such as the suspension prematurely failing before 10,000km. So, not only was I being rocked front and backwards, but then also side to side, causing me to bang my head against the side of the vehicle when going slowly over speed bumps etc. I never returned to have servicing completed at the dealership, instead going to my local Automasters, who, would you believe, verified all my mechanical complaints, even pointing out the few that I didn't know about, but suspected. And why would a business which has no benefit from pointing out these faults, as they are not permitted to do any warranty work. Perhaps due to a responsibily to the customer to have a safe operating vehicle? Something which he dealership had no such regard for.

Very poor quality
1. Heater is is poor in cold weather.
2. Bluetooth in useless when on the highway. Have to use an aftermarket model
3. Reverse camera does not work properly at night
4. Cruise control is slow and unresponsive. Sometimes you need to switch the car off to get the cruise working again?
5. Can only have one fob with these vehicles??
Awesome Family Van
we use our van every day for our family school runs, we have a G10 7 Seater 2.0 Turbo and surprisingly this van can use SHELL RON91 petrol (checked and no knocking), but usually use 98 for long road trips which was awesome, filled up once from Sydney to Melbourne no refills along the way. service every 6 months and expected it to be a tin can but it has a nice weight to it and no body roll when turning. favorite feature of the van is the space, 6x passengers and my Medium size 29er mountain bike in the boot or it can go in the middle without taking of front wheel.

The Best Van ever
I have driving this van since 2016, and it is really good.
Well, the car had some small fixable issues, but all been fixed up during the services.
My one is a 9 seater.
This car can use SHELL RON91 petrol (checked and no knocking) and not sure why the manual mentioned >RON92.

Rusty scam - this ldv brand should be closed down
I have had the car (or should say purchased the Van) 3 months ago - it has yet to need to be refilled so under 600Klm.
Van has been back for several small issues
I found rust in the car - I never would have purchased this car with the rust it has in it - I as an Australian Consumer under LAW have every right to a refund - check out the QLD government site to see this is true. The dealer based in Ipswich refused - ? Yep breaking the law is okay with them. They blamed LDV again read the law they can not do this.
I am a small business so have...

The Best Van ever
My family and I love going out together, so we decided to purchase a 7 seater. The 7 seater we first got was so hard to get in and out of so I decided to look into purchasing another that was easier to get in and out of. After months of searching we came across the LDV G10 people mover. Its so big inside, with ample room for everyone and luggage too. We got a special edition with leather seats, a pull down usb tv player, it has usb points all over the place so you can keep everybody,s devices charged at all times. All seats slide forwards ...and backwards including the very back seat, and all recline. I have a sun roof and a moon roof. I love love love this van.... The only thing that is not great, is that there is no Apple Play or GPS system. Also its really high so now i have to watch for height restrictions when I go into car parks, and through tunnels. Over all we all love the car, and its more than fabulous for the price paid.

Very good car for the price
Purchased the 2019 G10 Executive 9 seater. From the car point of view it is very good. A lot of features for the price.
The only thing that lets this car down is the Bluetooth(volume for the people your speaking to is very low as it’s a poor quality microphone) and the fact the car doesn’t come with floor mats. The last thing is the fuel consumption is not what they state(it’s not bad but no where near there assumption)
