194,000 Kms, And the Door and Wheels haven’t fallen off !
We bought a 9 Seater G10 new in 2016 as part of our Limousine Business, can’t fault it much, little noisy at motorway speeds, paint is very thin, Dealers are Very average, but we have had WORSE from the local Mercedes Dealer on the Sunshine Coast Qld, the vehicle now has 194,000 Kms and there are no rattles the trim has held up quite well, would we buy another? Absolutely. Looking a purchasing a new LDV Deliver 9, 14 Seater, email@example.com

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..

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.

Brilliant Value for Money
Bought the 9 seat G10 in Nov 17 & haven’t looked back since. The only issue we’ve had was a loose bolt on the slide door bracket which was an easy self fix with a shifter. Very spacious vehicle for both people & luggage & great for transporting kids & their friends. Seats are really comfortable like armchairs for that long distance drive. Engine has never missed a beat & worked perfectly with great fuel economy. We bought two ldv’s for the price of one people mover from the competition with the same & more bells and whistles than others offer, ...which are inclusive & not added extras as other brands charge. You really can’t go past these vehicles given the quality & price point. Shop around for servicing as VACC accredited mechanics are at least 50% cheaper than dealership charges, and it doesn’t affect your warranty. We were also advised these vehicles don’t require the 1st 5,000k service as stipulated, so first service took place at 15k with absolutely no issues other than to change mandatory filters & top up fluids.

I purchased our G10 Turbo Diesel with a 6 speed manual primarily for a Getaway van that can carry our surfboards and SUPS. In one year I have travelled 34,000 klm trouble free with some amazing economy of 6.9L/100klm. My wife uses it to haul her goods to the markets as well and seems to carry loads well. (Max loads to date 550 kg)The motor is a gem and has surprising amounts of power for a van. I purchased it after positive feedback from an Undertaker who travels over 50,000 klms a year and was in the process of picking up his 2nd one from the ...dealership.He said he prefers to take it than his more expensive Hyundai I Load. The van has been serviced regularly and our long term mechanic thought it was good value for money. I would like to see a bonnet deflector added to the options list as the bonnet does pick up stone chips easily. Mick from QLD.

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.

G10 People mover shuttle bus
Purchased my G10 7 seater turbo 2.0 used at 17,000km hasn’t missed a beat apart from a faulty radiator cap that left a coolant smell, now at 65,000km mine is used for airport shuttle and I move a lot of passengers.. parts aren’t easy to come by, but I buy parts from LDV ahead of time.
Would I recommend?? Yes, as long as you remember you aren’t spending 80k on a Mercedes v-series you will be fine

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.

My motorcycle carrier/ people mover
I bought this van (7 seater 2.0lt T) to replace my 1995 HiAce sbv and as other people have said, you can't buy any brand name van with 2 to 300,000klm on the clock for the same money. My g10 was an airport shuttle between Brisbane and the coast and had 94.000klms on it when I bought it. The van now has 108,000klm on it (7000klm on a trip carrying a bike) and I have really come to like it. I changed all the fluids and filters when I got it and the van has been problem free. Fuel economy on the highway is better than the HiAce (around 9lt/100klm)...but around town about the same (13-14lt/klm), but the comfort level (NVH) is really good, and all the modern conveniences are fitted to the vehicle. Removal of the rear bench seat and 1 rear single seat made it possible to load a motorbike in the back for my annual trip only. A fridge in between the front seats was fitted when I bought it and it is also a useful addition for travelling. I like the power for over taking and the cruise control is one of the best I have used. Steering and brakes are good and I found all the service parts online in Australia were delivered with in a week. (bought from Sydney). The reversing sensors and camera are a boon to any van and a welcomed add on. The van only moves on wet days and once a week shopping plus the annual trip so I am not expecting to add large mileage soon. I will update if anything changes.

I bought the 2015 2.0 petrol Turbo automatic in mid 2016 and have since done 160,000km. Almost 2000km every week, fuel economy is fairly good as I usually fill 80 liters of 98 premium fuel and get a minimum of 700km out of the tank. Vehicle has not given me any issues since warranty has ended but during the warranty period I had a faulty aircon and a loose seat and faded door handles. All have been replaced hassle free. I've gone through 2 sets of tires, one set of break disks and have been servicing every 10,000km. NOW! the issues I have is th...ere is a very limited aftermarket spare parts list, to the point where I had to scratch my head just to find a simple (Or not so simple) cartridge oil filter. Parts are expensive genuine, the wait time for parts to arrive is also frustrating (arrival from China), having to go through "Holden" dealership that is the middle man is the worst thing of all. Other than that, absolutely love the van, has not missed a beat, as long as you're servicing the vehicle according to the manual? It'll thank you in the long run.

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
