Would never touch a LDV trail rider t60
Purchased ldv t60 trail rider t60 new last year in November from ldv Nissan and MacArthur. First month had 3 mechanical faults engine light would come up no help from the team at ldv MacArthur. They were happy to sell me the car. Went without vehicle for almost 3 weeks as I run my own business. Had to get car towed it has been a nightmare. Dealt with principle owner and it resolved some issues but more are appearing I suggest don't purchase this type of vehicle unless your willing to deal with the problem
Purchased in November 2020 at Nissan Dealers for $40,000.00.
Rubbish. Do not but
Nothing but issues. 3months in, 10000km and now significant oil leak. Time off work and losing money. Do not buy spend more on better quality. LDV point you back to service dept and service dept dont know anything.
Unsafe to drive in wet weather with the crap dunlop tyres too

Front lights blinding drivers
Loving this Ute except one thing.
The base model (pro) I have doesn’t allow you to change the level of the front lights which means people driving in the opposite direction keep high beaming me (I can only assume they think I have the high beam on myself) and I’m blinding them in the process.
I’ve tried to find a way to sort this out but the dial to adjust the lights is not available in the pro model.
Surely adjusting the front lights (and not blinding drivers) isn’t something that only the more expensive models should have, instead all models should?

Something is fishy with this car
Just purchased a T60 manual Trailrider which was the Dealer executives car & had 8000km on the clock.
Purchased it in another state, drove it home on a permit rego etc. Drove the 800km drive home with no concerns, it was comfortable, smooth & seemed to be good, but was just a general drive with no real in depth use. Then had to drive in for Blue slip & that's when I picked up just just poor the rear camera is, honestly it has no vision 2ft from the camera that's how bad the quality is. In saying that, not the end of the world as i don't ever te...

More trouble than other cars
5 months old. Has stalled several times after starting. Rear view camera flickers sometimes. Blind spot detection comes on when no cars are there and doesn’t work when it should. Cruise control won’t always turn off when I press the button - probably will kill me one day. Up slight hills cruise control loses speed - needs input to maintain speed. Interior buttons got stuck in causing a check engine light. Fuel range sometimes shows - - - after filling it up. Head unit keeps dimming. Radio goes full volume when it’s turned on. Had an update to ...fix that but now it no longer shows service interval and switching between inputs volume changes from zero to full. Radio offers 360 camera but it doesn’t work. Steering wheel shake from new. Reverse sensors don’t always sound when there is an obstacle. Dealer claimed wiper blades were dud after only 5 months over summer having used them once or twice. Noisy. Bumpy ride. Had to reset radio 3 times because after a while it won’t detect iPhone. Rain sensing wipers come on when no rain. Floor mat nearly worn through. Can see body panel flexing when door is closed. Climate control doesn’t always respond and has on several occasions, in manual mode, got stuck ramping the fan speed up or down without touching buttons. Very harsh downshifts at times.

Questionable quality, very poorly supported by the importer
Purchased new in late 2020. Spent more time at the dealer trying to get many problems sorted out (electronics, transmission then the final engine failure). The dealer wasn't able to help as they were waiting on the importer to approve repairs.
After 5 months of ownership during which time I got to use it for only 2 months, I traded it at a considerable loss on a Triton.
Be very wary of this brand.

Had my pro for 6 weeks now 3500k coming up for its 5000 service, used everyday for work, didn’t buy for its off use but have been on the beach and not had any problem at all , and so much space inside great value for money, if your researching to buy make sure you check out all the other Ute makes pages not just ldv

Major Quality Issues
Vehicle is now 4 months old and has the following defects
1) carpet worn right through to undefeated under pedals in 5000 klms,sports bar rusty from new, fuel distance to go gauge on dash stopped working at 14 k, auto trans thumps on motorway.
The dealer says carpet is normal wear and tear,
Ldv technical support do not know how to fix fuel gauge at the momentThey can’t find transmission Fault
in workshop and they have to send ldv more photos of sports bar.
This car appears to be a lemon
What recourse do
I have under the Australian Consumer Laws??
Is any one else experiencing such poor quality and lack of device from LDV??

T60 side badge
I have recently purchased a T60 Luxe, March 21 . Why is there no side badge been on the T60 and do they sell them for me to put on, the dealer cannot tell the reason.
Purchased in March 2021.
I used this as a guide when buying my g10 and still didn't listen to the reviews and now im paying for it
The van is 3 years old. Its been into warranty 3 times and about to go for the 4th. I nearly killed myself on the motorway today cause the car at 120km/h just basically turned off and I had to get into the emergency lane as quick as I could. Ldv at kingswood do not offer a loan car so my electrical business has to completely come to a stand still. Ontop of that ldv will tow your car to the closest ldv to where you broke down. The closest ldv to me had a wait period of 2 weeks before viewing it for warranty and one ldv 4kms down could take it right in and they wouldn't take it there!!!
You would have to be out of your mind to buy a ldv.

Not worth the headache
I got my T60 as a work vehicle, i need reliability and in fairness most of the time it is ok, i would say the problem with these is mainly there technology is very poor, things like rain sense, reversing camera, apple car play, none of there tech works consistently, have had it at the dealers twice and the general response is worked ok when we tested it, mind you the auto wipers wouldn't stop when i picked it up on a nice sunny day, spoke to LDV and was told to take it to another dealer for a second opinion, not much point when its if we don't see it we don't care, best advise buy something else

This car is a lemon
The egr system keeps breaking down every couple of months my car has been in for this to be fixed almost a dozen times since I brought the ldv two years ago the workshop only fix it temporarily and then it goes again costing me a fortune in car hire while this lemon is in the workshop being repaired two years old and it’s been in the workshop more times than I been to the dr

The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review
Poor quality suspension bounces everywhere on the m1 Goldcoast to Brisbane and the dealer states its normal.
Suspension bounce is shocking very uncomfortable ride everything shakes steering wheel seats etc.
Dealer blames the road but my company’s utes don’t do it like the LDV.
It’s goes on for 15 minutes travelling from Goldcoast to Bris.
Purchased in January 2021 at Westpoint Autos for $36,000.00.
Great value for money and neat interiors with class finish.
I use it for family trips with our pet and loads of tub space to put the camping gear. I liked the feature where we can dim all the interior lights to zero so we can focus on the road without disturbing glare from inside.
Purchased in November 2020 for $37,000.00.
Questions & Answers
Does anyone know why my steering wheel functions don't light up, the dealer told me it doesn't have light, but I find that impossible cause I can't see what by then to use at night, it's pitch black.
Hey bud I'm not sure mine doesn't illuminate either but the car is a lemon man so I wouldn't be surprised
Omg, I can't believe I have up my amazing Nissan Navara for this, I wish I could take it back, the headlight the radio and the camras are blurred, I've only driven it a few times so far
How do get the screen brightness to stay at level you choose in settings? We have chosen manual and highest setting but it keeps going back to low.
