Seems a fair enough summing up in my book but 'storage is plentiful and practical'???? He must have different front doors to me!! They are the most stupid, dumb, idiotic, ridiculous bit of design I have ever seen in my many years on this planet. I'm buggered if I know what sort of idiot would design such a thing and even more bewildered that someone that earns bucket loads of cash would allow such an idiot piece of work to be approved!!! :evil: :evil: :evil:
I reckon I agree with most of what he has said except the above and my fuel economy has always been fairly disappointing.
When I went to Mallacoota with my slide on camper on and towing my tinny the Tonka Toy did a good, no fuss job. It rode better, sat on speed limits and got up the hills ( I just drive it in manual mode and whack it back to 4th) with no drama and just felt like it would cruise all day.
If only the mob at Isuzu were capable of listening and fixed or improved a dozen things it would be a match for most of the toys out there.

what's wrong with the front doors? a can of beer and a PMR fits fine in the pocket
and the fun prevention officer uses the top slot as a cigarette packet slot on the passenger door

By Isuzu D_Max spec sheet, their own best is 6.8.

The front doors are just plain stupid. How many cup holders do you need!! Just shove it between your legs. Have a geek at the Amarok and you will see how idiotic the Isuzu doors really are,

Cup holder in front of the air con vent. Best idea !!! Keeps a can of drink ice cold.
Few stubbie holders and the cup holders are great, winch remote, 2w handheld CB in the centre cup holders. Few pens etc
A bigger water bottle holder in the door would be great, since it is a ute.

I'm not seeing it - certainly nothing to get annoyed about - espectially when compared to the low hanging underside and atrocious clearance on the V-Dub
