2005 Isuzu Ascender LS 5-Passenger Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)
After 5 years and nearly 60K miles, I still love my Ascender. It looks good, tracks well, doesn't slide around on wet roads, is comfortable, and has plenty of power when needed for towing a trailer or just passing other vehicles. I love the Bose system stereo and 6 disc changer, the woodgrain dash and steering wheel, leather interior, and especially the dual seat heaters on colder evenings! It's been a reliable vehicle with only general maintenance/tire upkeep, and had to replace the shocks this Spring. Well made and comfy, just wish it got better mpg when gas was so pricey.
Bose stereo, seat adjustments & lumbar, plenty of passing/towing power, lots of room, stability, seat heater
Mine had the auto. mirror adjusters - saw someone else's didn't. Wish the 5-seater had option for the computer screen showing mpg, GPS, etc. Was only in the 7-psgr vehicle at the time.
