2000 Chevrolet LUV 4x4 Double Cab 2.5TD 2.5 Isuzu turbo diesel
The ultimate family machine
Nothing yet, all I've done so far is service it.
Reliable Isuzu engine has provided me with a stress-free ownership experience. Servicing is relatively inexpensive, my local Vauxhall dealership services my truck.
This is a great truck to use as a family vehicle. My kids love riding in it. There is plenty of interior space, and the materials and fabrics used are very durable.
The bed of this truck is enormous, and is perfect for trips to the garden centre and DIY stores. If I need to keep my cargo protected and secure I have a removable glass-fibre hard-top to fit over the bed.
The engine is rather noisy and unrefined, and the suspension is a little crude. However, it does everything I ask of it and it is very economical to run for such a large vehicle. The 4-wheel drive gives you confidence in poor weather conditions. In fact it feels a very safe vehicle all-round.
My only gripe is the turning circle and the fact that this truck's length can make it tricky to park.
Other than that I thoroughly recommend the Chevrolet LUV as a family vehicle.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
