2002 Isuzu Axiom 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
I've had this car for a little over two years and it is in the shop again for a blown engine. The last time, it had an issue with the engine and it completely seized, this time a rod shot through the block. It's a pain having to have it in the shop so often (I had to get a new transmission in it about 6 months ago) but I can't bring myself to trade it in because I LOVE DRIVING IT!! I would say that if you can find one, buy it (but make sure you get an extended warranty).
Its drivability and the fact that the cargo space is GREAT when everything is folded down.
