    That relaxed cruising + cruise control + great sound system = happy miles.

    Welcome new MUX owners.

    Jaco, your instant consumption looks different to mine.

    In the menu there is a setting to change it from digits to a "bar". I prefer the bar - easier to pick up on the periphery.

    For the guys with Alpine head-units (if you did not know).

    On normal Nav screen, longpress the bottom left block that indicates heading, which will take you to the next screen that displays GPS speed big & bold. You can customize the smaller altitude and heading readouts to other info.

    Much help in avoiding butt-clenching moments when a pro-collector in khaki appears from a khaki bush.

    I am now also a proud owner of a 2019 Isuzu mu-X 4x4. What an awesome vehicle! As I am approaching retirement within the next 3 years, this will probably be my last "new" vehicle, and I decided on the mu-X based on proven Isuzu reliability, and the fact that other more common SUV's in this price range tend to disappear from parking lots.... Very happy with the comfort and fuel consumption to date. Viva mu-X!!!!!!

    Unhappy Re: Joining the MUX club

    I lost my one side mirror over the weekend due to an electrical gate that closed before I could get through it. R6957 for the mirror....hell but that is expensive. But I guess that is the norm for all parts for new model cars these days.

    Yes.

    Monroe Gas Magnum.

    Contact Robert at Dune Offroad.

    084 580 8114

    (You will find front shocks for the MUX everywhere as they are the same as the KB bakkies. Rears is a headache. Unless you go KYB from the dealer - which is the OEM shock. Around R 10 000 all around. Robert has a "plan" for the rears. Under R 7000 all around. And the Monroe's are doing well. Use me as reference with Robert - say you need the same).

    Yesterday morning as I start the MUX, the dashboard does a "Christmas Tree". Engine management / spanner /ABS & ESC lights on. Off to the dealer.

    Diagnostic - left front ABS censor kaput. I crawl underneath and there the wire is hanging loose. It secures to the wishbone with a M6 bolt through a little saddle, which must have come loose and fallen out due to all my dirt road driving (check those bolts Gents. Sits on the front of the wishbone).

    Anyhow, replacement cost R 7 400 without labour but it will be a lot "because the harnass runs through the fire wall" (It is just a magnet with a meter long harnass, 2 saddle mounts and connecting plug). Off to Google - I can do it myself in probably less than 10 minutes. Really easy.

    Phone other dealer. "Sure Sir, we will have the part in 3 days - it will be R 3 750".

    Both prices from Isuzu dealers, albeit belonging to different groups / owners.

    Makes one the m..r in, to say the least.

    There should be more consistency between dealers. I guess this counts for all makes of vehicles.
