Doesn't do anything well
Where do I begin, the head unit, entertainment system. How can this be so bad? Can't see the screen during the day due to glare, can't drive with the screen on at night due to being so bright. Every time I restart the car the radio comes on loud, even if I've turned it off or muted before turning car off. The reverse camera is shocking, just a blur really. Android connect doesn't work properly. No blue tooth music streaming.
The steering wheel buttons don't light up at night, so using cruise control is made difficult. No...

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.

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

Good from afar...but far from good
The car is used as a work ute.
At 300ks went into limp mode. first tow truck. Dealer said diagnostics was diff lock fault!
At 5000ks blew out seal in power steering. Second tow truck
Leaked oil from rear drive of transfer case from new, dealer fixed that at 15000ks service.
It over heats too easy and brings engine back to an idle. A good protection to have I suppose, however towing or in low range heading up a hill even on a sub 30deg day it’s guaranteed.
Now at 55000ks engine has developed a knock so once again on a tow truck. Wait and see how this pans out I guess....It’s nice to drive though...well once you up grade the suspension. Oh, and the manual gear stick is clunky and not very smooth to change through gears, that too. I bought it because I hated the fact that all the Thai built utes still have drum brake rear end...ironically the t60 doesn’t have great brakes.

Phone can't connect, sensors not working, lane change warning not working, radio rubbish, clutch smokes!
I was a bit sceptical about why the initial owner of this car put it into part exchange for a Holden after just 3 weeks of ownership. I've owned it for 3 days and can now understand why!
Tried towing my boat yesterday and realised the struggle it had pulling it (19ft fibreglass). To get back up the slippery ramp I had to engage 4WD and the car started smoking... Got much worse when home and had to reverse up a gentle grass slope to park the boat in the shed. Clouds of smoke belching out from underneath the passenger door. Pretty obvious the clutch and I've since heard I am not the only one with this issue. Plus all the above electronic problems .... oh how I wish i had kept my Mitsubishi Triton. Almost 5 years and never a problem.

Some good points some just terrible points
Ron is right “The electronics in the car are terrible”. The cruise control drops out instead of changing down gears on highway hills!.The Apple car play is unreliable even after a firmware upgrade. The dealers won’t do anything on warranty unless head office approved first and wanted me to pay for faults that were intermittent because they didn’t believe me. My vehicle has 26k now and apart from the initial complaints it has been reliable. It won’t hold gears as engine braking if the revs go over 3200 which is dangerous when 4WDing! Seats are c...omfy even in long trips & the seat warmers are a bonus. The basics of the car could be made so much better with just a bit of effort by LDV - a decent entertainer unit without bugs and Bluetooth Apple CarPlay, more dampening in the shock absorbers to make it safe on the road, better performance from the motor, better quality paint finish, match the sound level of the radio with other sound sources and fix the microphone for the phone, it needs noise canceling to make it useable and also the T60 is very noisy in the cabin. They have fixed the sound level difference between phone and radio and had many software updates but now the entertainment unit locks up totally, can’t change volume or stations requiring a full reset, plus the radio reception is very poor partly due to interference from the vehicle’s other electronics. The shock absorbers are even worse now causing the vehicle to jump across in front of the oncoming traffic on a straight road if the sealed road is corrugated. The vehicle overheats on long climbs with minimal load and not towing. The Auto transmission has developed erratic harsh shifting and it’s partly alleviated by changing the transmission oil every 2nd service.

Questions & Answers
Every time we turn the car on the radio blasts and we have to be super quick to turn it down even though it wasn’t that high when car was turned off. Any help appreciated because it gives us a heart attack each time - thanks
The stereo is defective. Have LDV dealership fix, or replace. Is your driver's seat sensor faulty also? Seat belt beeper goes off when you are not in car and car is running in park?
OMG yes it does beep!!! That drives us crazy as well - I end up plugging it in to shut it up when I hear it!
