New guy

Thought I would finally join so here I am

Around a year ago I decided I would buy a 4wd something roomy inside but looked good out side,
Found myself a tidy 97 3.1 wizard with 161,000km on the clock mud tyres manual hubs and well looked after tucked away at a car yard.

After many people telling me I will regret buying a Isuzu I still haven't looked back, goes well good off-road and just all round practical.

Hope to get as much info on these wizards first time diesel owner and still enjoying it

Hi Matty
The wizards do have a few quirks but generally good cars. Dont neglect routine maintenance. I bought my wizard 5 years ago
Sanding your knuckles before starting work can help. That way you cant skin them

Yes there quirks like the rear door not unlocking the tailgate squeak

Have also found the dip stick level trick must be between the two marks
Still a good truck and wouldn't go back.

Hopefully in a few months will be going to a bigger exhaust to free it up a bit and get a wee bit more go out of the old girl

The rear door is a good trick. Try opening it with the handbrake on. After a year of owning a MU I finally asked the question.
