by RKB in Alabama on Jul 9, 2009 Vehicle: 1991 Isuzu Rodeo LS 4dr SUV
Bought it with 8 miles on it. Leather seats were added by the dealer-that hooked me! I have loved this vehicle, and it still runs great! While lacking features that newer models included, it was a design ahead of its time. Repainted after 8 years, all other maintenance issues have involved normal wear during 18 years and 245K miles. It has never left me dead in the road, EVER! Worst mpg: 17, running the AC, all in-town driving. Best: 24, on trips w/o AC, and at less than 65 mph. I wouldn't hesitate to drive it to CA tomorrow. I'd planned to just run it until it dies, now at <10K mi. a year. But with the new Cash for Clunkers program, it's worth up to $4500 if traded in. I can't decide.

We bought our Izusu Rodeo after we had
an accident with our Ford Bronco-II.
It flipped over after it skidded off
the road. It was a very unsafe vehicle.
The Rodeo on the other hand has been
(and still is) a safe SUV that we use
to tow a boat from the Los Angeles area
to the Colorado river. My wife uses it
everyday to do her shopping and
errants. It has 127,000 miles on it.
Things we replaced were a starter, the
clutch and an air-conditioning
compressor. Recently, we had it
repainted and so it still looks great.
We love this truck and we'll run it
untill it dies.
