Loy­alty has paid off for Isuzu Ute owner Paul Hun­triss.

The cleaner from Gor­don­vale, south of Cairns, won a $51,000 Isuzu D-MAX 4x4 LS-Ter­rain af­ter fill­ing out an Isuzu Ute Ser­vice Plus Driv­ing Re­port.

To help cus­tomers get the most out of their ve­hi­cle and un­der­stand more about their driv­ing style, Isuzu Ute Aus­tralia has de­vel­oped the printed re­port that eval­u­ates ve­hi­cle use and pro­vides tips to im­prove fuel ef­fi­ciency.

“It could not have come at a bet­ter time,” he said.

“When they called me to tell me I had won a ute I thought it was a crank call. It was a good shock.”

Mr Hun­triss and his wife, Brenda, bought a new D-Max diesel four years ago to re­place a thirsty petrol Jeep.

“We love the D-Max. It’s been a great ve­hi­cle,” he said.

Their old D-Max is stay­ing in the fam­ily, with daugh­ter Rox­anne buy­ing it off her par­ents.

Mr Hun­triss said the D-Max had al­ways been ser­viced by Isuzu Ute.

“I have no com­plaints at all,” he said. They also were given a $100 voucher to be put to­wards ser­vic­ing or ac­ces­sories.

An­other ute is up for grabs if own­ers com­plete a free driv­ing re­port by June 30.

Isuzu Ute is one of the stars of the new ve­hi­cle mar­ket in Aus­tralia.

The com­pany has set its sights on 30,000 an­nual sales by 2020 af­ter its ninth con­sec­u­tive year of dou­ble-digit sales growth in 2017, with just un­der 26,000 units across two mod­els: the D-Max and MU-X seven-seater SUV.


WIN­NER: Gor­don­vale man Paul Hun­triss has won a $50,000 Isuzu D-Max ute in a Queens­land com­pe­ti­tion.
