160,000 miles and still running

by on
Vehicle: 1997 Isuzu Hombre S 2dr Regular Cab SB

Lowered it 3" ft and bk and put on 17" rims/tires, it corners solidly. Truck is sliver with dark windows with retro wheels.I removed the rear bumper and applied a spray on bed liner. The 5 speed transmission still works good and the engine (2.2) runs fine but lifters clatter a bit. Constant 25-28 mpg. I've driven the truck for 152k miles and haven't ran into any more problems than you would any other cheap truck. AC compressor, heater core, ft end parts and a new radiator this year. Plus the normal maintenance parts. I'll spend a few hundred dollars a year to fix anything that goes wrong and have complete confidence that it will take me anywhere I only spent $3800 when it only had 8k miles.




Hombre-good small pick-up

Vehicle: 1997 Isuzu Hombre S 2dr Regular Cab SB

The Hombre "is what it is" and that's a small utilitarian pick-up truck. It could use some more power, but on the highway, once you attain cruising speed, you move right along no problem. This is a great well priced functional small pick-up. No mechanical problems, very comfortable seating, and easily accessible controls, and the air is cold.




Hombre is a disappointing chevy

Vehicle: 1997 Isuzu Hombre S 2dr Regular Cab SB

This car is way under powered with the 4 cyl engine and 5 speed manual tranny. It's a gutless wonder. The A/C went out right after the 3 year warranty expired, and the battery ate itself from the inside out after 12 months. Driver door key works intermittently.
