2003 Isuzu Axiom SUV XS 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
Quality is wonderful... Awesome looks ....Responsive and quite running v6 engine. I have owned many SUV s. In the last 25 years early on a couple of toyota 4/runners . I grew tired of replacing head gasket s on the on the Toyotas,so I traded for an 1995 trooper and instantly seen the light and before long had 3 isuzus in the stable me my wife and oldest son ,and have never looked back I have a 2001 isuzu trooper with 256k on the odometer and all I have done is replaced the starter at 165 k , And now 2016. I bought a 2003 axiom a year ago and we love it .have put 18k on it this last year has the 3.5 v6 like my trooper and smooth as silk .could use more adjustment on the driver seat . We are partial to the high seat position of the troopers I have looked at many and there is nothing out there to compare with the troops driving position its like flying a plan..but the axiom is still great in it lower driving position..ISUZU COME BACK !!!!

2003 Isuzu Axiom SUV 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.
Power windows, locks, seats. Heated from seats, moon roof, spacious in back, front and trunk space. Not too bad on gas for a V6 SUV
Completely different transmission. Not new ones of the same poor quality, but better, new transmissions that don't die or go out every 2000 miles.
Since the engine blew 3 months after I bought it ($6000.00), I have spent an additional $4000.00 on repairing everything, and still brakes not working properly. I know I should have gotten rid of it a long time ago, but dealer screwed me so bad I'm stuck with it for another 2 years. I'd love to get some of my money back. I owned Isuzus for 8 years prior, but never again.
I bought my 03 Axiom in Dec 08. The first 5 days I fell in love with this vehicle. On the 6th day the transmission started slipping. I thought it was something I was doing. Every time I begin to accelerate my truck would jerk like it didn't want to go. I took it back to the dealership and of course it didn't do the jerk while they drove it. I took it to the service dept. where they supposedly did a transmission flush and it stopped the slipping for awhile. It's back now. I am so frustrated with this vehicle. I'm on the verge of taking it back.
