Review of the 2001 Isuzu Rodeo Sport

  • A somewhat-charming specialty SUV let down by sloppy handling dynamics and an unrefined interior.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Sporty styling, standard ABS, powerful V6 engine option.

  • Cons

    Excessive engine noise, harsh suspension, cramped interior.

  • What's New for 2001

    Formerly the Amigo, Isuzu's two-door sport-ute gets a name change and two new colors. A wheezing four-cylinder automatic with either a hard- or soft top is also new for 2001.

Vehicle: 2001 Isuzu Rodeo Sport Hard Top 2WD 2dr SUV (2.2L 4cyl 5M)

I really liked it at first. The first and second gear ratios are awefull. You just cant get through them without jerking the car around. Its so cheaply built. I did have fun with it, although it was way underpowered ( I thought I was gonna die going up huge hills.) But then When i was trying to switch lane (with those horrible blind spots) it took me a little too long to make sure it was clear and I ended up REAR ENDING A CAR! THEN THE CAR CAUGHT ON FIRE INSTANTLY AND INCINERATED EVERYTHING WITHIN MINUTES AS IF SOMEONE USED A FLAMETHROWER ON IT FOR 15 MINUTES STRAIGHT. I don't even know what to think of this vehicle.




Fun - but problems too

Vehicle: 2001 Isuzu Rodeo Sport Hard Top 2WD 2dr SUV (2.2L 4cyl 5M)

This is a fun truck to drive - but long trips forget it - not comfortable at all. Great for a one person vehicle but not if you have a couple of dogs too. Needs a little bit more room for luggage. Styling is great - I've already had to replace weatherstripping on rear, I think a little too soon.
