Broken passenger vanity mirror cover hinge.

General Comments:

Comfortable and strong - superb heavy duty tow ute.

Door opening should be 15-20 mm higher than the seat squab.

Diesel fill pipe fills slowly or "burps".

Excellent seats - beats anything (have had 40 + vehicles).

NZ drivers use daytime headlamps - dash lights auto-dim and make speedometer almost unreadable. Stupid design Isuzu!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
