Review of the 2004 Isuzu Ascender

  • Capable, roomy and packing optional V8 power, this is Isuzu's best truck.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Strong six- or eight-cylinder engines, simple interior design, plenty of passenger and cargo room.

  • Cons

    Spongy suspension, numb steering, low-grade interior materials, odd exterior proportions.

  • What's New for 2004

    A smaller, five-passenger version joins the lineup. The bigger Ascender is pretty much the same as last year, though Isuzu has added a bit of content and fiddled with the option packages. On base 2WD S models, the formerly standard keyless entry and side airbags are now optional. LS models now have a leather-wrapped steering wheel as standard and leather seating, formerly exclusive to the Limited trim, can be ordered as an option. For the Limited, driver-adjustable pedals are new this year.

Isuzu fan deeply disappointed

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Isuzu Ascender LS 7-Passenger Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

After owning a Rodeo for 8 yrs with 160,000 trouble free miles. I was excited about my new Ascender. Noticed roaring noise from start and noted with dealership and Isuzu new owner survey. By March whole new rear end was installed. Still roars as of 6/2005. Dealership still waiting on tools? Oil sending unit now bad and on order. Dealership is a nightmare and the Owner Assistance hotline with Isuzu useless! I'm a very disappointed owner who is no longer a fan. Shame on Isuzu!




Very impressed

Vehicle: 2004 Isuzu Ascender LS 7-Passenger Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

This SUV is unreal. I am so impressed with the quality and make of the vehicle. Roominess is an understatement. The quality of this vehicle is beyond my expectations. I use to own a Chevy Suburban and I swore up and down I would never buy another American made car. But even though this car is American made, it has the quality of a Japanese made car without the price or the shortcomings in roomyiness. This SUVis the secret of 2004.




Best buy

Vehicle: 2004 Isuzu Ascender LS 7-Passenger Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

We have had our Ascender for just over 2 months and WE LOVE IT! We compared it with the Pilot, Trailblazer, Durango and Murano. It was very clear to us that the Ascender was the best all around deal for the money! Our 7 passenger LS came with sunroof, 5 disc cd player, rear ac, onstar, pw, plocks, and top luggage rack. Our color is black & grey with greyish cloth interior. After the $3500 rebate we bought ours for $26500 plus ttt. We financed with for four years with 4.5% interest using Capitol One online auto finance which was easy, fast and worked out great!

Great suv for an affordable price. Drives and handles well with room for everything. This should become a popular choice over the GMC envoy or Chevy trailblazer.
