1997 Isuzu Hombre XS 2dr Regular Cab SB

Review

Got it new in 1/98. Have 125k on it now. Alternator went out at 110k, and A/C compressor went out at 113k. Replaced both coil packs recently, and one sensor was acting up - which directly affected the coil packs. Other than that - absolutely nothing has gone wrong. That ain't too bad for 13 years and that many miles. Very, very, very dependable unit. The tires can be a bit of a pain to change if you have a flat. Have actually had to take a sledge-hammer to the inner-sides of the tire to bang them off rims, but other than that small annoyance, this thing has been absolutely great to deal with.

160,000 miles and still running

1997 Isuzu Hombre S 2dr Regular Cab SB

Review

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.

Review

Bought the truck new in‘98. My son bought a single cab 4 cylinder Hombre the same day. He had the transmission replaced under warranty twice. My "SERVICE ENGINE SOON" light is now on throwing the same code. 0557- manufacturers transmission code. This happened before and the dealership reset the computer, twice. This is not good....LOW POWER, and I mean LOW.

Hombre-Good Small Pick-Up

Review

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 S-10

1997 Isuzu Hombre S 2dr Regular Cab SB

Review

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.

Disappointed

1997 Isuzu Hombre XS V6 2dr Extended Cab SB

Review

After nearly five year of ownership and only 42,000 miles, I traded in my Hombre. I'm no mechanic but it was leaking oil from a lower seal and the spare tire support broke causing the vehicle to be spare less. My main reason for trading in the Isuzu was when the passenger door latch broke.
