No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the Isuzu reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.
Isuzu D-Max 2012: Why is my motor making a screeching noise?
I would suspect there’s a problem with the turbocharger, have a diesel mechanic check it for you.
Why is my Isuzu MU-X LST 2016 stalling?
It would only be speculation on my part of I was to try and diagnose the problem; it could be any number of things causing it. The best thing is to continue working with your Isuzu dealer until the cause of the problem is found, particularly as the car is still under warranty. If the dealer can’t find the fault get them to call in Isuzu head office technical staff that should be able to track it down.
How much is a 2012 Isuzu D-Max worth?
It’s average, both in terms of price and kilometres travelled, for that model. If it’s been well serviced and is in good condition it would be worth considering.
Has Nedahl Stelio reviewed the Isuzu MUX 2019?
No, we haven't managed to get Nedahl to spend time with the MU-X yet, but thanks very much for the suggestion. We'll try and make that happen soon.
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 2011: The lights don't flash when locking or unlocking
Have you tried the spare key? If not perhaps try it and see if that one works. If it does it could be a problem with the key/battery. You could also have it checked by a dealer or an auto electrician.
What's the best car for towing a van?
The Jeeps are perfectly capable of doing the trip you are planning, and if anything did go wrong while you were away there are dealers all around the country who cold fix it for you. At 2000 kg your caravan is not particularly heavy and shouldn’t stress the Jeep at all. The Prado is the other obvious choice, and it too will do the job with ease. Others to look at are the Kia Sorento and Isuzu MU-X.
Isuzu D-Max LS 2010: What to look for when buying
There are no issues of concern with the 2010 D-Max, just the regular issues of wear and tear on a vehicle that is almost 10 years old. It’s a good idea to have a mechanic check it for you before you buy it so that any issues that might need attention can be identified.
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.
