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


Review

When I originally saw this car, I was
in love, but figured the price tag
(then was 24k) was beyond what I could
afford. So I test drove a couple
Nissans, a Honda, and a Liberty. I came
back and boy, am I ever glad! This car
is adorable, and everyone remarks about
it. The two sunroofs are conversation
starters that's for sure! There weren't
a lot of them driving along around here
but I've noticed more and more of them
this year. I guess everyone's catching
on that Isuzu builds a neat little SUV
that's dependable and reliable, heck,
then even give you a great waranty to
back it up!


Best Features

I love the sunroofs, and the sound system is decent, the 6-disk CD changer is a plus, and everything is easily accessed while driving. It's got great power and takes potholes decently. I just love my little Isuzu!


Worst Features

I do agree with everyone else. It feels like the gas tank has a hole in at times and I seem to be at the gas station every four days. Sometimes, the looking over my shoulder can be tricky but I've learned to adapt. Otherwise, it's a GREAT SUV and I'm very glad I didn't settle for less!

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


Review

After almost 3 years in my 2000 Amigo,
I know I made the right choice. So far
I have 36k trouble free miles and I
hope to see what others have with their
98-99 which is 150k+ trouble free
miles. Why did I buy an Amigo? It is a
rare truck since only about 10k of them
are made per yr. The 10yr/120k
warrenty. The ability to go anywhere.
And it looks smooth


Best Features

Duel pop-up sunroofs gets the looks. Torquey 205 hp engine. The ability to swap the factory Hard top for the factory soft top.


Worst Features

Better marketing! Isuzu needs to jump on the pick a current hot song and have some trendy 20 something rolling in it.

Review

The V6 in the truck is awesome! I
really love the response this engine
has. One word, GREAT ...


Best Features

V6, Stereo, Sun Roofs, Everything.


Worst Features

Better Rear-Viewing, try to eliminate the blind spots. Also, a lower lumbar would really be nice, and exterior temperature and compase in the rearview mirror would be a plus too.

Review

The rodeo sport is nice. In winter
conditions and mud it is great to have
4WD. It looks nice and the stereo
system is awesome. My dog actually
loves to ride in it. He likes all the
windows to look out. Plus the cargo
area is big enough to haul his kennel.
On long road trip it could be a little
more comfortable. Need lumbar support.


Best Features

Nice looking there is not alot of these around. It really turns heads. Great sound system.


Worst Features

The seats need lumbar support, especially on long trips. The book value dropped a good 12,000 dollars in 6 months!? What is up with that?

Review

I did not need avehicle for off road so
I got 2 WD. I did not need room for
extra passengers. In fact I took the
back seat out and cut out plywood to
fit and put carpet over it. If you need
to use the back seat it night be ok for
kids but not adults. Too hard to get in
and out of. But it was just what I
wanted and needed. But I would say
there are not many people would use it
like me. It's not a family vehicle.


Best Features

Lots of power, Quick Steering, Rides good for short wheel base. Easy for driver to reach controls, Looks cool,easy to wash,and easy to service


Worst Features

Does not need 2 sun roofs, Need 1 with power opener. Add more glass on sides to see better, to add more strength to roof when glass is added put in a roll bar like in the back.
