Great Ute but has anyone replace the review camera to get a better picture??????
Great Ute for the price but not happy with the review camera has anyone found a answer for this? Other than that seems to be a very solid Ute both on road and off

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?

Solid work horse
Use this daily for work. Generally speaking for 6-8 hours a day. Serviced it on time regularly. Reliable like my wifes Toyota. Very happy with the purchase despite initial doubts, but was priced right.

Enjoying it a lot thus far
I went from a 4L 6cyl petrol to the 2020 Luxe 2.8 4cyl diesel, which is a bit of a change. I miss the cd player in the old car, but am loving the Luxe. Tows my horse float beautifully, drives really well and is a comfortable, practical vehicle that is surprisingly easy to handle. I do a mix of highway and rural driving, with a bit of city stuff thrown in.
The head unit (radio etc) can be a bit quirky, and I have an android phone instead of an i-phone, which by all accounts work a treat in these cars, but once you get used to the radio res...etting itself to 10 every time you turn it off, it's all good. The dealer I bought it from was great and the local dealer who did my first service is not bad, so I'm happy. It's a lot of car for the money. Worth investigating.
Purchased in August 2020 at South Nowra Auto Group for $34,968.00.
Just taken delivery a few days ago. All marketing on the Trailrider 2 show the new custom sportsbar. When mine arrived it had the old style. When I questioned this, i was told that the new look will be on the 2021 vehicle. Not a huge issue, but i was a little miffed that this was not mentioned anywhere.

Happy with my LDV T60 Pro auto
I've had my LDV T60 Pro auto since new Aug 2018, paying $36,000 with a towbar, tonneau cover, darkest legal tint & electronic trailer brake controls as optional extras. I generally use it for daily commutes & towing a campervan on holidays. Since obtaining it, I have just shy of 30,000km on the odometer, with just under 13,000km completed in the last 8 weeks on sealed & dusty, corrugated, roads going on east to west on the Outback Way, returning via Eyre Hwy & other sealed roads) while towing a campervan with a GCM of approx 5t. Very little dus...t ingress into the cabin on the dirt roads, averaging 12.1 litres per 100km with aircon going & cruise control set on 95kph when on the highways. So far it's been a solid performer with a minor glitch with cruise control disengaging occasionally when under load driving up steep hills while towing the campervan.

About to buy 2nd T60
Had the T60 Luxe Auto since Nov 17, other than a floaty suspension that’s now been upgraded by Walkinshaw parent company of HSV, the vehicle is a clear winner compared to the overpriced alternatives. So impressed, I’ve ordered a T60 Trailrider & the wife’s getting her 2nd LDV G10. Their absolutely brilliant vehicles for dollar value, however some of the dealerships let LDV down ripping off their own clients with service costs. I found a difference of $280 between two dealerships for a 15k service. Shop around people, I went to a VACC approved mechanic for a fraction of the price the dealerships charge. Other than that, can’t wait to get the next one.
Purchased in November 2017 for $33,690.00.
Practical but there's a few downside
I love my LDV T60 Trailrider and it was really affordable. Although, as has been told by other reviews, the Infotainment is really hard to work with. It uses Easycon not Android Auto. Low in torque. But overall, as I don't pull trailer and don't go 4WD'ng very often, car is above average for my liking.
Purchased in September 2019 at Rockyldv for $38,990.00.
Value for Money....
Value for money 10/10.....

Very happy with this vehicle
Only down side is radio continually stays on with ignition off.
So radio only turns off with door locked.
As no setting can overide this.

Packed full of features
15,000km on the clock now & everything has been great. We did have a flat battery when we arrived back from holiday after not driving it for a few weeks - but we were provided with a new battery & software update and it has been great ever since.
5000km -We are very happy with our LDV T60 Luxe. It is a dual cab packed full of features. We have enjoyed the seat warmers this winter. Love how the headlights adjust as you go around corners/up & down hills. 360 degree cameras. Lovely and comfortable to drive. Economical for a big 4WD. 5 star ANCAP Safety Rating. 5 year warranty. Amazing value. We highly recommend.
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!
