Review of the 2003 Isuzu Axiom

  • Like most Isuzu SUVs, the Axiom is a middle-of-the-road effort, amounting to little more than a rehashed Rodeo wearing nice duds and a Halloween mask for effect.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Strong V6, distinctive styling, unique features.

  • Cons

    Limited drivetrain choices, old tech underpinnings.

  • What's New for 2003

Money pit!!

Vehicle: 2003 Isuzu Axiom XS Rwd 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

We bought our 03 in February 2013. It had 113,XXX miles on it and I fell in love with it. 5 minutes after paying for it, it died going down the highway! We baought a brand new transmission and had it put it, and have taken back atleast once a month because it keeps sliping. Then the fuel pump went out, and the day the fuel pump was fixed, the transmission went out again. After owning it for 7 months, we have put more money into keeping it running than what we paid for it in the first place. I LOVE this car, (WHEN IT RUNS!!) but after sinking every penny we had and after being stranded on the road multiple times with my children, we are just taking a loss and selling for anything we can get.

This is the best SUV on market til 2005, Quality is Isuzu's best selling point. I change oil every 7000 miles.

Overall, I'm pleased with this machine. Styling and performance is great. It's always a head-turner wherever I go. I hope that Isuzu reconsiders and produce them again.

I'm not exactly crazy about this SUV. The one I have willn't free wheel going down hill at 40 to 50 miles hr. It down shift out of over drive tactmeter will go from a 2 to 3 or 3.50. One reason I think this is not normal it doesn't happen everytime. I don't think this should happen. Would like to know if anyone else has this promblem. I would think this cuts down on miles per gallon. Back door is to narrow doesn't open wider enough for easy exit. This simply a bad design in the car. Really no reason why the back door should be this way. I different hing could solve this problem.




Great vehicle for the price!

I bought mine in March of '02. I have really been pleased with the performance and features. I did alot of research and you can't get more for your money. 35k miles driven with only one minor problem. Highly recommended !!!

Great riding, driving truck with two ride settings, comfort and sport. Interior is well appointed, comfortable, high quality, heated leather seats, 140 watt 6 disc CD, leather trim on door panels, driver information center, automatic AC, self dimming mirrors, great styling touchs on console and shift lever. The exterior styling is sensational and very unique, it is a real attention getter. The engine and transmission are smooth and provide great acceleration. This is a vehicle you must spend some time with to appreciate the great quality and performance. It is a very unique vehicle, a great buy!
