Due to the impacts of Covid-19 Isuzu Utes NZ will be extending warranties and service intervals:

Isuzu New Vehicle Warranty:

The Isuzu new vehicle warranty period for Isuzu D-Max and MU-X vehicles still within their warranty period, will be extended by an additional month.

IUNZ will provide you with an extended warranty period of 1 Month (mileage limitations will still apply) on your D-max or MU-X first registered new in New Zealand on or after 1st March 2017. This extended warranty will take effect on the expiry of your Isuzu New vehicle warranty and covers repairs to correct any malfunction occurring during the extended warranty period resulting from defects in material or workmanship of the vehicle. This is in addition to the standard three year warranty period for the whole vehicle and all warranty terms and conditions as detailed in your service and warranty booklet, still apply. Including exclusions such as the use of wrong or contaminated fuels or unauthorised modifications.

Service Intervals:

Isuzu vehicles due for a service during the lock down period will have an extension on the service interval for an extra month after the lock down period ends, this means that a delayed service during the lock down period will not affect your warranty.

The Isuzu recommended service schedule is mileage or time based, whichever occurs first. For the recommended service schedule for your vehicle, please refer to the Service and Warranty Booklet/Owner's and Drivers Manual supplied with the vehicle. Servicing should be performed on your initiative by an Authorised Isuzu Dealership or an Authorised Isuzu Parts and Service Agent within ± 2,000Kms or 2 months of the scheduled service (normally ± 1,000Kms or 1 month). This extension will expire 31 May 2020.

TIPS ON STORING YOUR ISUZU DURING COVID-19 LOCK DOWN:

As a result of the current COVID-19 restrictions, your Isuzu vehicle may have seen a reduction in use.

Here are a few handy pointers to ensure when the restrictions are lifted, your vehicle performs as normal and maintains its appearance:

One of Toyota's most iconic vehicles hits major global milestone

2019 Toyota rav4 adventure

Like or lump the advent of the SUV, one has to pay applause to the vehicle that kicked off the trend. And that's the humble Toyota RAV4. 

While sales of the RAV4 have never necessarily dipped since it hit the market in 1994, they reached new heights last year with the worldwide launch of its fifth generation. 

Lauded worldwide for its affordable hybrid option, space, and vast improvement over the fourth generation, the RAV4 scooped up a bunch of awards (including our AA Driven New Zealand Car of the Year People's Choice and SUV of the year awards). 

It also sold in high numbers, with Australian and New Zealand hybrid buyers in particular forced onto a lengthy waiting list as global demand surged. And, that surge in demand has resulted in the RAV4's global sales ticking over 10 million units; 10,080,834 sales recorded at the end of February 2020.
