1998 Isuzu Amigo S 2dr SUV 4WD


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Convertible top, 4X4, rally-car driving feeling when you use the 5 speed right, chicks dig it!


Suggested Improvements

Standard cruise control, more durable plastic windows, can always use more horsepower (K&N air filter helps a little)

1998 Isuzu Amigo S V6 2dr SUV 4WD w/Soft Top


Review

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 Isuzu.


Favorite Features

Removable top - sunroof, 4wd


Suggested Improvements

If Isuzu wants customers, try working on customer service. Build better quality trucks and you might keep existing customers next time.

Review

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.


Suggested Improvements

Better rear seat access.
