I bought a Jass Performance air scoop for my MX-5 because I noticed that it not much air goes through the cabin with the roof down and I don't want to run the A/C unless the roof is up. It slides down into the latch on the windscreen surround. It's overpriced but it does draw in cool air.
First use and it's damaged the microswitch/sensor that tells the car if the roof is latched/unlatched, so it now thinks that the roof is latched the entire time unless I get my finger behind the metal tab and hold it down manually. I'm not very impressed, there's nothing to say it's not compatible with the PRHT hard top. I can't even find any information on taking that apart.
Hah, that's a coincidence, a consequence of angry rant posting. No kidding I'm dissatisfied, it's one thing having a product underperform but actually damaging the car it's fitted to? It's annoying because I like the product in principle, it works well.So you're dissatisfied with the product. Was it a coincidence or intentional that your link reads "ass performance"?
Depends, in the US you get old fogies that bought a Cadillac in the 80s or something and drive it maybe once per week. Sometimes it’s just nice to go places.After living here for a decade I finally learned who drives the blue 7th gen Civic hatch that's been parked outside my flat since I moved here. It's a neighbor above me. The car doesn't move for weeks at a time. Today I finally saw it moving, and who drove it. Is it even worth it to own a car at this point? It's a 20 year old shitbox now but when I moved here it was still a reasonably valuable investment.
Investigation into Isuzu D-Max and Mu-X
Bannister Law Class Actions is currently investigating the following issues concerning Isuzu D-Max 4×4 and Isuzu Mu-X 4×4 sold by Isuzu UTE Australia Pty Ltd:
Some of the owners of Isuzu D-Max and Mu-X claim that the front inner guards were cracked without being used excessively or within only a few years after the purchase. The cracking issue might be recurring after the crack has been fixed once. Cracks may show up within an engine bay other than inner guards such as near a VIN plate or suspension towers. We have received a report that the repair of the cracks on the inner guard cost $9,722.
- Cracking of inner guards or any other parts within an engine bay; and
- Any Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) issues.
Furthermore, DPF issues can be seen in several vehicle makes and models of diesel cars. We have also received a reports that the DPF of Isuzu D-Max not working properly and needed to be replaced and that the replacement of the DPF cost $ 8,770. We are asking owners of the diesel vehicles to register regarding DPF any issues of Isuzu D-Max and Mu-X, please register below.
John, I first heard of Isuzu's vulnerabilities to front structural cracking in 2017 when I was visiting south western inland QLD and talked to an experienced owner of a local panel beating business. From memory most of his accounts were associated with accessory bullbars. In 2018, I checked out a used ex-rental 2014 MUX which had around 70K kilometers, no bull bar or tow pack , at an Isuzu dealers on the coast. It had a transverse fatigue crack about half distance from the front in the top left hand channel in the engine bay about 70mm long. It had no evidence of extensive off road work and the salesperson was totally gobsmacked when I pointed it out. I then posted a comment on a popular online Isuzu owners forum which generated a fair buzz with more than 1 owner stating they had experienced similar issues. I thought it may have been a materials issue which was sorted in the later revised model line up. Appears it may not have been resolved.
Easy, original Ka every day. I’ll never forget the hollow clank when the big doors close, Freelander makes a similar sound and also only had partial door cards.
