G’day Guys and Gals!
In this video I talk about some COMMON ISSUES and COMMON PROBLEMS that the Isuzu Mu-x and D-max can experience. I also show you how to fix these issues and overcome the problems with some simple DIY work. If you have any other issues that you have come across, please let me know down in the comments below. If we make this video a talking space it will be great for me and others to learn about any other issues that these vehicles experience.
My TOP 7 ISSUES with the Isuzu Mu-x and D-max are-
1. A/C belt squeaks (replace belt)
2. Hub seal Squeal/singing noise (Lubricate hub seals)
3. DPF models – TURBO issues (Warranty Turbo replacement necessary)
4. Body Mounts sagging and cracking (Replace with new mounts – Colorado mounts also Fit)
5. Body Cracking around build place in engine bay and behind airbox (Major Body repair)
6. Driveline Vibrations and Shuddering (Multiple different fixes as discussed in video)
7. Head unit crashing after period of time (Replace with Aftermarket or new head unit)
That is my top 7 Issues I have seen over the years of working as a Mechanic and also owning an Isuzu Mu-x. If you do have any other issues I didn’t mention in the video just drop it down in the comments below and we can all help each other out to diagnose the issue.
The Isuzu Mu-x and D-max are a very reliable vehicle and do have minimal issues in relation to most other vehicles on the market today. The Isuzu Mu-x and D-max are a great choice of vehicle and will give you years of trouble free motoring if serviced regularly and looked after.
DISCLAIMER – Please don’t let this video scare you off purchasing an Isuzu Mu-x or D-max. Every vehicle on the market, any vehicle ever made has issues. In relation to other vehicles on the market the Mu-x has very minimal issues in comparison its rivals. These are just some of the common issues and common problems to look out for if you are purchasing a new or used Isuzu Mu-x or D-max.
Isuzu Mu-x and Isuzu D-max are great 4×4 vehicles and have the reliable 4JJ1 engine which has been tried and tested for many years. The Vehicles are of a solid construction and there aren’t too many issues or problems to look out for when purchasing one. A general check over is always a good idea, check for corrosion, damage and any leaks. An RACQ Pre purchase inspection is a great idea if you don’t have much mechanical knowledge too.
