Asked by Jodie
Have there been any reports of cracks appearing in the inner guard in the engine bay just forward of the compliance plate of the Isuzu MU-X?
I have seen some reports about the D-Max that seems to have the same complaint. I have an OEM bull bar and have upgraded the suspension to a 2-inch Old Man Emu lift. Our 2015 MU-X does the occasional off-roading and has done one big trip across the desert, but is mainly used on road as a passenger vehicle.

We haven’t had anything reported to us about cracking of the inner guard, but like you have seen reports of cracking on the D-Max. That suggests it could also affect the MUX.
Because of the modifications you have made, and the off-roading you have done, I doubt you would have any success if you were to make a claim against Isuzu for repairs.
