Review of the 2004 Isuzu Axiom

  • Isuzu's Rodeo-based Axiom is a compromise that will please few consumers. It looks like a car, but drives like a truck. Most people buying SUVs today prefer the opposite.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Strong V6 engine, distinctive styling, slick four-wheel-drive system.

  • Cons

    Old tech underpinnings, cumbersome control layout, slow steering, tight legroom in front seat.

  • What's New for 2004

    More power is the word for 2004. The Axiom's 3.5-liter V6 engine features new gasoline "direct injection" technology to improve both horsepower and torque. Of a less exciting nature, the audio system doesn't include a tape player anymore and the speaker count drops by two for a total of six. Outside, there's a new chrome finish for the front grille and for the XS model's optional alloy wheels.

As reliable as the sun

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Isuzu Axiom S 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

Have had this truck for nearly 10 years and put over 150k miles on it. Was great for helping move my friends drum kit, hauling a tent trailer up a mountain, and going off-road. The Axiom has great power and control. Was more fun to drive than a V6 Altima. Can't even imagine replacing this with anything else.




Excellent

Vehicle: 2004 Isuzu Axiom XS 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

I am 5'6" and 167 lb for me this is the best car ever, the only thing I don't like too much is that jumps to much when go in to a bump or something like it. I make a trip of 210 miles and I only use 13 gallons of gas = 21 mpg hwy city 16




Edmunds too tough, i like

Vehicle: 2004 Isuzu Axiom S 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

Bought this '04 Axiom used with 48,000 miles. The seats are low compared to a Suzuki Grand Vitara it replaced but I got used to it. This vehicle flies! Power is fantastic, gas mileage is 13 mpg. Looks alone are a home run. I personally like the dash but does have a lot to it. You just have to get used to it. My only complaint would be the rubber stripping around the doors it seems to move or come out of its fasteners and not fit as well as I'm sure as when it was new. I have had it 4 months or so and really like it.




I love this axiom xs!

Vehicle: 2004 Isuzu Axiom XS 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

I just purchased my 2004 Isuzu Axiom XS and...I really...really LOVE this vehicle!!!! It is perfect for long trips... It does well on mountain roads...and it rides like a dream on the Florida Flatlands...LOL!!!! It is a sexy little ride for a 4X4! It handles well...and looks fabulous!!!!! I went from driving a sports car, to driving this cute little SUV...and I COMPLETELY LOVE IT!!!! The Axiom has a sports car appearance, yet works like a truck, and handles like the best of the more expensive SUV's! I am not sure why some wrote bad reviews for this SUV... in my opinion it is an absolutely awesome SUV!!!!! The MPG is running around 20 in town, and 22 on HWY. I am very, very happy with it!!!!!




My axiom

Vehicle: 2004 Isuzu Axiom XS Rwd 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

I purchased my axiom used a year ago and I am loving it. But, there is one problem, my radio does not work but I can still play cd's, not sure what that's all about. Overall I wouldn't trade it.




A cool suv

Vehicle: 2004 Isuzu Axiom S 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

I bought this vehicle new. It is the 2nd Isuzu I've owned. I really love it. Its styling is my favorite thing. I never have had any issues with it. But I do wish it was a little better on gas.
