3rd world tested!
By florida on
1992 Isuzu Rodeo S 4dr SUV
let's see -4 cyl, 5 speed - drove across the US 4 times (east/west) 4 times north/south, and used as a daily vehicle from early '93-2000. Had 150k miles when moved to central america with it. Abused this perfect truck for 4 years on rock roads and pure dust. SOld it in '04 w/ over 250k miles to a friend who gave it some needed care on suspension and it is still going today! NEVER failed - can't say enough - only one flaw was the funky wheels - lugs with springs (which one tire shop in florida left off causing tires to nearly come off on highway) - getting flats in central america was no fun having to find those springs/lock washers at night in the dirt !
where would i start? was in -60 winter of detroit, california desert, central american jungle with rock roads, dust etc - indestructible
wheels with lock washers/springs - only seen them on this truck - very strange - my wife would never be able to cx a tire and know to put them back on ! dangerous without them as wheels could fall off! also bolts sheared of easily due to over torque or heavy dust and needing to remove 4 tire repai
