Bought my Amigo in June of 98. Since
then, the only major problem was the
timing belt breaking, ruining the
little 4 cylinder. This was at 65,000
miles. Guess what? Isuzu replace it
for FREE due to a tensioner recall.
The only other issue is the radio
volume button is stripped or
something. Other than that, it's been
a fun summer drop top and a great
winter vehicle with the 4X4. The 5
speed works great witht he little
engine. Just row through the gears and
have a blast in the sand and snow.
Convertible top, 4X4, rally-car driving
feeling when you use the 5 speed right,
chicks dig it!
Standard cruise control, more durable
plastic windows, can always use more
horsepower (K&N air filter helps a
I have a 1998 Amigo with 50k miles.
From a truck that is supposed to be fun
and enjoyable, It has given me nothing
but grief. I only wish there was a word
more powerful than horrendous to
describe Isuzu's customer service and
they way they treat their "Valued"
customers. Quick rundown, transmission
went on me exactly 2 months after the 5
yr wrnty expired, no help from isuzu,
Check engine light on since 30k miles,
pass window wont roll down, ac went,
radio broke, suspension squeaks, rear
seat broke, bumper cracked, intake
gasket went, o2 sensors went, catalytic
converters went. All I can say is the
Amigo, is no friend of mine. Nor is
Removable top - sunroof, 4wd
If Isuzu wants customers, try working
on customer service. Build better
quality trucks and you might keep
existing customers next time.
This vehicle has been bulletproof to
55,000 miles.No major mech
prob,int/ext body hardware is holding
up well.Plastic windows getting
worn.Only work done other than Isuzu
recalls and service bulletins was: new
batt,frnt brake pads @ 50K mi, and
tires @ 55K.Under warr the windsheild
washer pump and radio were rpl.The
dealer I purchased the vehicle
from,Pitre Isuzu in Scottsdale was and
still is horrible.I have been
completely satisfied with Chapman
Isuzu in Tempe since then.The ride
qual is what you should expect from a
short wheelbase utility
vehicle.Performance from the 4-cyl is
adequate until the a/c is turned
on,then pretty tepid.
