2002 Isuzu Axiom XS 2WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

One thing that I loved about the axiom was the outside design. But don't let that fool you. I have had nothing but troubles with this SUV from the transmission, to the electrical, and the list continues. I am very disappointed in Isuzu and will never by one again. Plus on top of all the problems the parts are hard to find and real expensive. To make matter worst this car bounces like crazy no matter what I've done. Buyer beware!

Suggested Improvements

Improve the shocks and electrical system. NO wonder Isuzu left the US, they made a terrible vehicle.

2002 Isuzu Axiom XS 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I had bought this car without doing any information about the car, If I were you listen to this REVIEW!!!!!! I had bought it Aug. 2006 w/79xxx miles and when I got home I relized the shocks needed to be replaced....yeah no prob. but like $200 a shock...ouch... and finding parts for this car is IMPOSIBLE!!!!! especially the front control pannel...b/c this car has buttons to control like AM/FM and AC the buttons fall out and I so far have taped them cause it costs $500 to replace the hole pannel not just the buttons...anyhow that is about it besides the back leg room is horrible and the back storage is also bad ....but that is what you get for a SMALL SUV....AND ITS A GAS HOG about 13/17.


Favorite Features

Nice orange glow at night inside...sunroof ....but be careful with the plastic around the glass you can get the sunroof caught in the track...and sweet stero...and 6 cd changer...but its in the armrest :(


Suggested Improvements

Better gas milege...more room in back and better materials inside...and better leather...hard to clean up (blue jeans stain this leather and you have to clean it about once every 4 days) oh and paint is pealing off letters of car....:(

Review

The Isuzu warranty isnít worth the paper itís written on. 3/50 doesnít cover major brake components (not talking about pads) along with many other parts and 10/120 appears to be a joke. Dealership lied about warranty and build quality is sub-par at best. Isuzu customer service is horrible and will not stand behind their product and will blame dealer for problems. Buy a Subaru or spend a little more to get a quality vehicle because low price reflects poor quality and reliability at Isuzu.


Suggested Improvements

stand behind your product

Review

I bought the vehicle because of the distinct design, leather color interior and quality. But after just 1 year of driving this particular vehicle it has been in the shop 4 times. Twice becuase of electrical problems and twice for interior pieces falling apart. In-fact on the driver door panel the bottom paneling is coming off, so I'll have to return it back to the dealership. The MSRP was a little under 30K, with a 4K dealer discount plus my GM discount... I bought on impulse. I've haven't been to happy with my descision.


Favorite Features

Interior gadgets, I like the screen that displays helpful information


Suggested Improvements
