2018 was another eventful year at John Barr Cars.

For the forth year in a row we were again the most successful Isuzu dealer in Northern Ireland. We are 100% dedicated to the brand and we believe that this dedication comes across to both existing and potential customers whether they visit us with the intention of changing to a new Isuzu or looking after their existing vehicle.

In 2018 we purchased our new and bigger premises at Springfarm industrial estate, Ballymena Road, Antrim. This is a twin phase move which saw our workshop move from Crumlin to Antrim in October 2018 and will see all of our vehicle sales move to Antrim by 30/06/2019.

Our old premises at the Dundrod road, Nutts Corner has already closed. Dundrod was a great site which served us well for 15years, however, it was felt that we could no longer offer the professional customer experience from this site that our customers deserve.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers for their continued support throughout this moving process and for making the move possible. 


To give UFU members an even better deal on a new Isuzu D-Max, Isuzu in partnership with UFU have a special membership discount of 3% on all brand new Isuzu D-Max and Isuzu Arctic Truck. This 3% discount is in addition to any negotiated discount from your supplying dealer. UFU discounts are available throughout the range giving UFU members a significant price reduction.    

Special praise awarded to John Barr Cars team by Isuzu Uk.

At an Isuzu award ceremony in London this year we were delighted to get recognition for all the hard work and effort our team has put in to making us a successful Isuzu Dealer. We were overwhelmed to have picked up two awards on the night. Dealer of the year and Dealer principal of the year. Many thanks to all of our customers for helping to make this possible.

 Arctic Truck AT35 D-Max in Northern Ireland.

The New Isuzu Dmax AT35 Arctic Truck is here in Northern Ireland. This is a very specialist piece of equipment. At John Barr Cars we know these vehicles inside out and would be delighted to introduce you to what is possibly the most capable pickup on the market. This will be the most extreme Dmax ever produced and is capable of going places that no other pickup can. 

These vehicles are specially prepared by the Norwegian based 'Arctic trucks company' and have re-engineered suspension, 17"x10" wheels, higher ground clearance , projector headlamps and a choice of double or extended cab.
