A mate is looking at the purchase of a Isuzu MU. I have never heard of them. Does anyone know anything about them? Strengths, weaknesses, parts, servicing, where they come from etc.

Thanks in anticipation,

Mal T.

Hey Mal,

Im pretty sure an Isuzu MU is just a grey import holden Frontera. I have seen a few around and I think they come with Turbo diesels aswell which the Frontera didn't. Don't know anything more about them but would guess that they are very similar in makeup to a Frontera. They are the last model frontera (original) not the more recent bigger ones.

Charlie is right there an import of the frontera, had a turbo diesel MU (mystery utility).
The turbo diesel not a bad vehicle suited our needs at the the time had a real low groud clearence though. Quiet gutless i would imagine without the turbo really crap fuel economy we really didnt have it long enough for any problems to occur. As it wasnt long before our needs changed.

Hope it helps.

1 of the 4wd mags did something on the mu recently - can't remember which one though. for any info or parts go to an isuzu dealer not a holden dealer - the holden people have no idea (now isn't that a surprise...) but the motor is an isuzu truck something a derivative of which was in Aust. rgds

Mal we had a mysterious utility [mu] with us in the cape with us last year for 21 days.
It went well only thing that happened was the side steps welds broke and removed themselves from the truck.
The only thing that I could see that was a problem a bit limmited in space in the rear for travelling cargo space that is.

all the best

hi mal, mate honestly the mu's are "crap". thats all you really need to know. they are powerless, low to the ground, uncomfortable and expensive to fix if any problems occur. they are an arabian vehicle and in my oppinion should never of been released in oz...............mate thats just my oppinion!
