2002 Isuzu Rodeo Sport S V6 Hard Top 4WD 2dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Good reliable little vehicle. The only mechanical/electrical problem we have experienced is a defective dashboard light dimmer switch which the dealer replaced at no cost and an fuel injection oxygen sensor. The fuel economy is not the greatest for a relatively small vehicle but its truck based construction allows greater towing capacities than similar small sport utilities. I would buy it again.


Favorite Features

The body style and V6 power coupled with its ability to go in the snow are my favorite features.


Suggested Improvements

A little more front seat legroom and improvements to the rear swing door would be nice.

2002 Isuzu Rodeo Sport S V6 Hard Top 4WD 2dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

My Rodeo Sport hardtop has 77k miles with no major problems. Built very well and feels solid to drive, much more so than the Wrangler I used to own. Sits up high and the two bubble windows allow a good view of cars in the blindspots. The V6 engine is strong and the 4WD is excellent, the moonroofs are fun and add natural light, the 6-speaker stereo is pretty good and all the power options still work well. Good cargo room in the back and places for stuff in the front. It's easy to clean inside, and the outside even looks good dirty. And since it's small there's a lot more room in the garage. Overall a great little SUV for on and off-road.


Favorite Features

Engine, 4WD, small size, build-quality, simplicity, exterior looks.


Suggested Improvements

Gas mileage average or below other 4WD SUV's.

2002 Isuzu Rodeo Sport S V6 Soft Top 4WD 2dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I just bought one and I love it! A lot of fun to drive. Love the removable hardtop and multiple removable moon roofs. Very sporty. Has good acceleration and gets decent milage. Very fun and different from your run-of-the-mill SUV!


Favorite Features

The removable hardtop and sunroofs as well as the 6 disc cd changer. Fairly roomy for it's size.


Suggested Improvements

Sound system could be better and the interior lacks the character to keep up with the exterior.

2002 Isuzu Rodeo Sport S V6 Hard Top 4WD 2dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is a good solid SUV. I have had it for just over a month and it is everything I expected. It does well in traffic as well as off road. It has good power for towing small trailers and campers. My son likes the rear moonroof. The cargo space is just enough to fit al of my hunting equipment. There are only a couple of issues, I'm always at the gas pump and my right leg is always hitting the shift lever.


Favorite Features

The 4X4, 205 horse power, the 6 disc changer, and the rear moonroof.


Suggested Improvements

split the rear seat. Put in a larger gas tank. Relocate the automatic shift lever to the steering column.
