Isuzu D-Max rear suspension recall: 80% of vehicles yet to be fixed

Isuzu Ute Australia says there have so far been four reported cases of faulty leaf springs showing “symptoms” of a defect that could lead to a fracture and collapse of the rear suspension. However, no actual suspension failures have been reported locally and Isuzu says it has replaced the rear leaf springs in 20 per cent of the approximately 4000 D-Max utes caught in the global recall during the first four weeks of the campaign.

CarAdvice on YourMoney, 01 May 2019: What's on this week's show?

On this week's episode of CarAdvice, Trent Nikolic and Paul Maric talk about the new Great Wall ute, Ford's long-range electric car inspired by the Mustang, and talk about a pair of British SUVs. For starters, there's a new Great Wall ute, and it has the Ford Ranger and Toyota HiLux in its sights. With a more upmarket interior and the promise of a proper off-road model, it certainly looks good on paper.
