Take a walk on Tasmania's wild side: Part 2

During part one of our trip to Tasmania's wild west with Isuzu and its I-Venture Club, we discovered some of the more picturesque parts of the Apple Isle and learned a little about local history. The next two days would take no prisoners, however. We were to air down and explore the Henty Dunes, and get a little crossed up on the loose sand...

Take a walk on Tasmania's wild side: Part 1

I’m sure of it. Tasmania is the most pretty, untouched, unfettered and most natural part of Australia. In my time, I’ve had the privilege of exploring the more southern areas of the Apple Isle. Now, courtesy of Isuzu and its increasingly popular I-Venture Club, I’ve seen what may be, the most picturesque part of the gem that lies just south of the mainland...

Journey to the Deep South of the Eyre Peninsula with Isuzu I-Venture

The Eyre Peninsula in South Australia is one of the most iconic 4WD destinations on this vast continent of ours. This Australian gem should be on the list of any avid adventurer. Sure, it’s difficult to get to, but once you do, oh boy. It is something else. It boggles the mind that anyone ever leaves. It is that stunning.

2018 Isuzu D-Max LS-T review: Off-road prowess tested

The platform the Isuzu D-Max sits on was first launched over six years ago, so does this hard-working ute still have the core elements of a work-truck-cum-weekend-lifestyle-ute?

2017 Isuzu MU-X LS-U (4x4) review

Buying the Isuzu MU-X has been the best decision ever. We upgraded from a 2007 Honda CR-V. Being a diesel mechanic and previously working for an Isuzu ute dealership in a coastal town, I always wanted to buy one. The main reason for buying the Isuzu MU-X was the known reliability of the 3.0-litre TD, and the vehicle is practical from front to back...

2014 Isuzu D-Max LS-M Hi-Ride (4x4) review

It was purchased in February 2015. The only warranty problem was a leaking rear brake light seal into the cabin behind the rear seat. Excellent sales but mediocre service department at the place it was purchased from. I changed dealerships after 70,000km and the warranty was accepted and repaired with no fuss...

2015 Isuzu D-MAX LS-U Hi-Ride (4x4) review

I've owned my D-Max for just over a year. Since buying it I've added a snorkel, bullbar, winch, rear recovery bar, oil catch can, and LED driving lights. I find it comfortable, quiet in the cabin, and economical. The transmission and clutch feel light and solid at the same time.  The two glove boxes are handy with an extra 12volt outlet...

2014 Isuzu D-MAX LS-Terrain High-Ride (4x4) Review

The ride is very comfy and stable, plus with the rack-and-pinion steering, the turning circle is just like driving a car. With the standard tyres from the factory, I have only needed to replace them recently, after having traveled over 65,000km. The 5-speed automatic is excellent in towing...
