2020-2021 Isuzu D-Max recalled in Australia

By Ritesh B

Isuzu has withdrawn 7106 of its Isuzu D-Max cars in Australia for the 2020–2021 new cars.

The reason is that the cover trim of the car could fall off at high speeds.

The plate trim is 1.3 meters wide aluminum piece.

The likelihood of an accident that results in the injury or death of other car drivers increases if the rolling tonneau front cover separates from the car while it is being driven.

The complaint filed with DOI stated the following...

"Due to a manufacturing issue, the roller tonneau front cover screws may become loose and fall out. If this occurs the tonneau front cover may detach from the vehicle while driving."

According to Isuzu Australia, it will write to customers to request an availability for a complimentary examination and correction at the closest Isuzu Ute dealership.

Despite being unable to verify if the issue happened while off-roading, the spokesperson indicated customers would probably detect a sound from the panel.

The D-Max was priced at $67500 and registration costs extra.
