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..

Regional disadvantaged LDV
I love my G10 executive people mover but! On the first service I booked, I travelled a long distance from regional area, to be told they hadn't booked me in. They squeezed me in thankfully. However the service center couldn't remove the service light. Such a pain when I record my kms! Next my vehicle would not start! I live in regional area, and was told LDV roadside assistance could not assist me. I had to call my own, to be told the key battery was not working. Lucky I had another key because if I didn't my vehicle would have to be towed to t...he city to fix the key and program it to the vehicle. Next my DVD player would not work while the vehicle was moving. What is the point of a DVD player. I read the manual nothing, I called LDV no help. I do love the LDV, yet It would be good for city owners only, regional owners are disadvantaged.

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.

rust is present on a brand new vehicle.
Bought a G10 and found rust in weird spots. contacted the dealer and we were allowed to take it to our own panel beaters for repairs. The panel beaters would not quote as the rust is in spots that are in areas where they cannot warrant the return. Spots to look for rust are - under the side door seals at the top by roof - bottoms of the doors where there are drain holes - rear door when open at the top left and right - front panel join in front of side rear view mirror - there are other areas as well just look around. I first noticed this about...3 months after I bought it. LDV did get it in somewhere but the rust did not get fixed. I will take it in again however it is hard as I rely on this vehicle as I am a tradie. I talked with a panel beater that does the repairs here in town and he told me the just wipe white sickaflex over the rust areas as they cannot do a proper repair. This issue is the only thing that is stopping me from buying more vans. other small issues are. Cruze control can sometimes not work. bluetooth is not the best. bit of turbo lag

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.

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)
Purchased in January 2019.
love this vehicle.
Full house and very nice to drive. Have mine for over a year now and no problems what so ever. Really impressed. will highly recommend. I bought the 9 seater and wow!! what a lot of room

Great value good car
We have had the g10 for a year a nd a half for work and it has been great economy is great power is good we have travelled in it on long distances and comfort never an issue body and paint are good i do look after it but it does around 90ks a week on dirt roads as we services some properties interior and seats wear well as we are in and out a fair bit all in all great car my only problem is wr dont have a dealer in town so it is serviced at toyota and there is no way to cancel the service light but i will put up with that very good car. It is diesel manual by the way
Purchase price really great, but service costs make up for cheaper vehicle
Car used mainly as a family vehicle. We until recently have had the LDV G10 serviced by the local dealer, but will be in future be using a third party to service. I have found the dealers service rates continue to go up. We had an air conditioner failure which could not originally be diagnosed eventually after 10 weeks the dealer replaced a Evap sensor. Appears a great purchase, but service costs from dealer helps the price go through the roof.
I waited for the first 5000k, before writing this review because I could not believe how GOOD this-now updated 50,000km
This is my first van which I use to transport large joinery units around the country. I researched every other vehicle of this type and was sure until I found the G10 that the only thing I could afford was a second, third or fourth hand Hyundai or Toyota which had all done well over 100,000km. I took what I thought to be a huge risk and purchased my g10 for less than the cost of the older equivalent on offer. I do not regret it, the driving experience and comfort are way above any other van. The engine is quiet, economical and a delight to dri...ve under all conditions. The air cond is fine, the radio/Bluetooth sound and quality is excellent. The seating is very comfortable for driver and passenger. The build quality is not that great, my guess is that if you run this as a fleet vehicle you might see a few pieces fall off, it's definitely not the toughest vehicle ever built, but if you look after it it will be fine. The drive alone is likely to sell you on the vehicle. Service gaps seem rather short, but so far my experience with this has been good, thankfully my original dealer has gone out of business after providing the worst possible sales experience ( apart from price) you could ever imagine. Hopefully, my experience will continue to be positive. Feel free to ask me any questions you might have. UPDATE AT 50,000KM. So the good news is that I still like this vehicle and that I'm still pretty positive about it. All my services have been performed at the same recommended LDV dealer workshop. It is true that any parts you need seem to take an age to get; luckily mine were both trim based and not mechanical but were ultimately replaced without question. My small rust issue, however, identified at 5000km has never been resolved, at each service I identify it and it's referred back to LDV for approval which I am then told will be OK at next service, I can't be bothered to chase them up but I will ensure it's fixed eventually, it's also encouraging that the original small rust issue has not grown to any other area of the vehicle. So apart from the surprisingly casual attitude of the importer to warranty and spare parts as reported by others my experience with the actual vehicle continues to be positive. As I said before, it's my vehicle and I treat it gently, not sure that as a fleet vehicle it would do so well. The diesel engine is terrific, the cabin comfortable, fuel economy is incredible. Reading some of the reviews makes me feel a bit like I won a lucky dip prize when the dealer I purchased from had 2 identical vehicles to choose from and gave me this one, did the other vehicle fare as well as mine? Happy to answer any questions if you are considering purchasing one of these. I enjoy driving this vehicle and do recommend a test drive at least before you spend thousands more on an alternative.

Very happy. Great for a growing family.
No complaints so far after 6 months of ownership. Its very well priced, and we have been able to transport our family of 6 with great comfort. We opted for the 9 seat version to get the leather seats and the extra room at the back. It drives and handles like a much smaller than would be expected, and better than our previous car (Tarago). We would happily buy the car again, however wish we had been able to opt for the Executive model which has been released.
