ISUZU’S North­ern Ire­land deal­ers have been breaking more records this year than Usain Bolt.

When we caught up with them in En­niskillen they showed no signs of slack­en­ing with the lat­est flag­ship model Cen­tu­rion now ar­rived in the Prov­ince and win­ter weather — the 4x4’s pick-up’s strong­est sales pe­riod — ly­ing ahead.

“It’s been a sen­sa­tional year, we’re 60 per cent ahead of last year’s record re­sult, ev­ery ex­pec­ta­tion has been sur­passed and there are still many weeks of 2016 to go,” said Crum­lin dealer John Barr.

“Ev­ery­one knows that D-max is North­ern Ire­land’s num­ber 1 best-selling pick-up, we’ve now sold out of a num­ber of mod­els, but fresh stock is on its way and due any day.

“Whether it’s a flag­ship Blade, worka­day sin­gle cab or the new Yukon ex­tended cab we just can’t seem to get enough of them.”

“Qual­ity, workrate, value. Then throw in low run­ning costs, class-lead­ing tow­ing and su­pe­rior resid­ual val­ues,” said Lis­burn dealer Des East­wood.

“A great war­ranty, ex­cel­lent tow­ing abil­ity and su­perb Con­tract Hire rentals that would make other man­u­fac­tur­ers blush.

“What’s not to like? It’s a great place to be, our buy­ers love their D-max’s. Fleet busi­ness this year has taken off — big busi­nesses see Isuzu D-max hold­ing its value strongly, with neg­li­gi­ble down­time, that’s an un­beat­able com­bi­na­tion.”

“Noth­ing pulls like a D-max” said Claudy’s Peter Eakin.

“We now sell to many farmers who were forced to seek alternatives af­ter De­fender’s demise. They sim­ply can­not be­lieve just how good an Isuzu is and the war­ranty as­ton­ishes them.

“And be­ing an Isuzu, the farmer’s D-max is out stand­ing in its field — it’s only ever in the work­shops for rou­tine ser­vic­ing.”

“First three ser­vices for un­der

£500+VAT — who would have be­lieved that?” asked Dun­gan­non dealer Noel Gorm­ley.

“Up to six years main­te­nance, price-locked and in­fla­tion-proofed at time of pur­chase.

“You can spread the cost into your monthly fi­nance pay­ments too and a full Isuzu ser­vice record doesn’t just en­sure your D-max al­ways runs at its best, it also strength­ens its resid­ual value.”

“There is a full range of ac­ces- sories to per­son­alise your D-max to in­di­vid­ual re­quire­ments” said Michael Tur­tle of Wil­sons Rathkenny

“Canopies, dig­i­tal light bars, roller tops, of­froad tyres, un­der- guards, tow­bars and seat cov­ers for ev­ery taste and use imag­in­able. “We even of­fer a sport­ing shoot­ers con­ver­sion — the Hunts­man — which has lock­ing gun cab­i­nets and can be fit­ted with dog cages and ramps and winch for large car­casses.” “D-max comes in three body styles, and choice of man­ual six-speed or five-speed auto,” said En­niskillen dealer Pat Mc­caf­frey. “At Western Cars we have the full range of new and used in stock and on our demo fleet. “Ask about our fi­nance of­fers, call into your lo­cal Isuzu NI dealer at any time and even in the depths of win­ter you’ll be sure of the warm­est of wel­comes. “Make sure and say the Belfast Tele­graph sent you — and hope to see you soon.”

Isuzu deal­ers in North­ern Ire­land are en­joy­ing record sales and with more than two months of 2016 left they are ex­pect­ing more to come be­fore the end of the year
