2002 Isuzu Axiom SUV XS 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
I was rear-ended; I was at a stand still and was hit from behind at about 70 miles per hour. My Axiom was thrown into the guardrail at a great rate of impact. I walked away. There is nothing left of my SUV except an untouched driver and passenger seat. Way to go on safety. The fireman told me he had seen three Axioms involved in bad accidents like mine and the drivers all lived.
Cargo room, digital display.
More driver, passenger seat comfort. Plusher seats.
The vehicle has been quite good and not required other than normal maintenance. Got it to tow my boat and it is quite adequate. Need to replace rear wiper arm and it is a very non standard design, though the front arms are standard. Can't buy it anywhere. Top heavy like all SUV/4wd and need to be aware of that. Gas mileage is poor - average 19.5 under the best of conditions, much worse with a load.
Dash command center is great once you learn all the options. CD player is good too. Very crisp and attractive lines.
Create some space for storing small items as there is none and they go in the large storage area. Get a standard arm for the rear wiper.
