No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the Isuzu MU-X 2015 reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.
Isuzu MU-X 2015: Whistling sound at high speeds
It could be some form of wind noise, either from the door seal, the rear view mirror, windscreen trim, or anything else that might be in the wind stream. To check the door seal, try running a strip of tape around it to block off the door gap and see what that does. It’s going to be a process of elimination.
My Isuzu MU-X has turbo underboost
What do you know about its history before you bought it? It could have occurred before you bought it, and just shown up now. It’s not something we hear about.
Isuzu MU-X and D-Max: Cracked inner guard in engine bay
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.
Isuzu MU-X for towing
The MU-X is rated to tow 3000 kg, which is well above the 2100 kg you say your caravan weighs. On that basis it would seem to be well suited to your towing needs.
Happy with MU-X
So that's another vote for the Isuzu.
Towing ability of MU-X
Modern four-cylinder turbo engines, particularly diesels, are far more powerful and efficient than old-school sixes. We've had excellent reports on the towing ability of the MU-X but you would be best to judge how hard your Territory was working.
Good car for towing?
The MU-X is not as refined as a LandCruiser but is a lot cheaper and is a solid, sensible workhorse. It should be fine for towing and travelling.
Toyota LandCruiser: finding a replacement off roader
You will definitely enjoy a new car and the Prado gets The Tick but, really, the Isuzu will be cheaper and almost as good for your towing needs.
