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

Review

This has been a great truck for us. The only thing about this truck is the transmission oil has no dipstick. You cannot check the fluid level or color from the under the hood, the truck has to be on a lift. So when we bought it used, about 3 months later the transmission started to jerk and we took it in to get serviced. It had about 55,000 miles on it and the mechanic told us the transmission had never been serviced and needed to be replaced. Of course he was a crook so we took it someplace else. They made repairs on it that cost around $500 so we got away pretty lucky. No problems since and it has been a great car. Just make sure to get the transmission checked out before you buy used!

Best Features

Love the soft top on a warm, sunny day! Also the front is hard so you can have the soft top down and roll the windows up and not get blow away like you do in a convertible. Good clearance and very reliable.

Worst Features

Have a transmission dipstick accessible under the hood!
