Isuzu D-Max 2017

The 2017 Isuzu D-Max range of configurations is currently priced from $19,990. Our most recent review of the 2017 Isuzu D-Max resulted in a score of 7 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Editor - Adventure Marcus Craft had this to say at the time: The D-Max looks okay, drives well, and has a good engine and six-speed auto. It's a solid all-round ute; a tough, hard worker, and one of the few remaining honest-to-god workhorses. If it was $5000 cheaper, had more safety tech, and Isuzu offered a limited slip diff and rear diff-lock – at least as options – this thing might just be a real contender.

  • Why doesn't my Android connect via Bluetooth in my 2017 Isuzu D-Max?

    This topic has been a red-hot one for many years now. It seems a lot of car-makers can’t seem to get it right when it comes to specifying a Bluetooth system that will work for Australian customers. Toyota had all sorts of crazy issues with the Bluetooth in its vehicles of a few years ago, although recent experience suggests that is now sorted.

    I’ve not heard of the Isuzu D-Max as a problem child specifically, but it doesn’t surprise me to hear that you’re having difficulties. There’s a theory that some Bluetooth systems simply don’t play well with some makes and models of phones, and that could be what’s happening to you. A quick check would be to find a friend with an iPhone and see if that will work better in your car. That would at least rule out a blanket problem with the unit in your car.

  • Should the Isuzu D-Max 2017 be recalled?

    It may be sufficient to warrant a recall on the grounds of safety, but more info would be needed to make a definitive call on the issue. But it’s being fixed under warranty, so hopefully you should be back on the road soon. In the meantime if I were you I would be demanding a replacement vehicle to be used while yours is being repaired.

  • Isuzu D-Max 2017: Turbo failures

    I doubt that there will be a recall any time soon; it’s not the sort of safety issue that might trigger a recall. I wouldn’t be overly concerned about driving your D-Max from Perth to Brisbane, providing it has been serviced, the oil changed regularly, and it is in sound overall condition.

  • Isuzu D-Max 2017: Is it good for short distance driving?

    What they were referring to is the automatic burn of the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF), which collects carbon in the exhaust while you are driving along, and then periodically goes through a cleaning process in which the accumulated carbon is burnt off. The burn-off happens automatically without you knowing it’s happening, but it needs regular freeway type driving for it to happen. If your travels don’t involve any freeway travel then the burn-off might not happen and you have to take it to a dealer to have it done manually. From what you tell us about your driving I would say it doesn’t suit a diesel, and you would be better off buying a car with a small petrol engine.
