2003 Isuzu Ascender S Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

My Acender has been wonderful because of the size, we have taken it on many trips. I bought the third row Acender and the extra space is wonderful. The seats are easy to move. I have only had a few mecanical problems window motror, the ac doesn't work on the 5th setting and the clutch fan went out. But the clutch fan was kind of pricey but you can buy the gmc envoy clutch fan, it's cheaper and it's the same part. Other than that I love my Acender.


Best Features

Easy folding seats.


Worst Features

Make the passenger seat auto adjust.

2003 Isuzu Ascender S Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

It is a good thing Isuzu gives an extended warranty.
You will need it. We have had one electrical
problem after another. Because these problems are
not the same in 3 or more cases we can not say this
falls under the lemon laws of our state, but believe
me we consider this car to be a lemon. The front
passenger seat is extremely uncomfortable. The
maximum gas mileage we have been able to get is
17mpg. Several exterior pieces are plastic and
extremely easy to damage. Within 6 months of
buying this vehicle started having squeaks that
sound like loosing of hinges etc.. Do Not Buy an
Isuzu Ascender if you are smart.


Best Features

It has more leg room than a Yukon or Tahoe Does not drive like truck


Worst Features

Start over

Review

I have realized why there are not many
Isuzu Ascenders on the road. Recently I
went to the dealership and test drove
one as well as showed interest buying
one. My wife and I really liked the
car, but salesperson did not really
show much energy to sell one at all. I
have called him a couple of times, and
all I got from him is he will call me
back very soon, but have not heard
since. I tried again, but no results.
It's a good car, but they need to work
how to sell it. No adds in the paper
either escept Demo one which was sold
(according to the dealership) day
before it went to the paper. Honda and
Toyota

Review

We like this vehicle, however we
have already had it in for repairs on
the a/c switch. It is suposed to have
a monitor for the life of oil, but the
mechanic manager said we should
change oil every 3,000 miles anyway.
As front passenger sometimes the
consule proved to be uncomfortable
when traveling long distances.
Overall we are still very pleased.


Best Features

Able to haul kids and friends. Increased power over a mini van. Great interior for every one and stylish looks over similar vehicles.


Worst Features

Adjust consule for better leg room for front passenger. Driver has no where to rest arms. Plastic molding makes impossible to attach after market bicyle racks that attach to tailgate at top.
