Isuzu MU-X 2018: How much can my car tow?

Answered by CarsGuide 1 Nov 2019

It’s not a good idea to be towing in fifth gear into a head wind or uphill, or in other adverse conditions. If you do the gearbox will shift back to fourth, or lower if need be. I wouldn’t be too concerned about towing a larger van, providing of course it doesn’t overload the MU-X. You could upgrade the turbo with a chip or other device, but in my view you’re risking trouble by doing it.

Isuzu MU-X 2018: Should I buy one?

Answered by CarsGuide 30 Nov 2018

The MU-X is solidly built and reliable, and I can’t see any reason why you should be unsure of it. If you want a seven–seat SUV it’s worth considering.

Isuzu MU-X and D-Max: Cracked inner guard in engine bay

Answered by CarsGuide 20 Jul 2018

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.
