1993 Rodeo LS 4WD still running strong
By John on
1993 Isuzu Rodeo LS 4dr SUV 4WD
I bought my 93 Rodeo LS 4WD in 95 with 70,000 miles on it. It now has 199,930 miles on it (as of 8-4-09). I've maintained it faithfully and other than normal wear and tear repairs (rubber hose, brakes, etc) I have not had any major repairs needed on it. I upgraded the suspension with CALMINI offroad 3" lift about 11 years ago, and even with the added stress on the driveline from the modified suspension, it still runs like a champ. Now, I use it mostly for off-roading and it has impressed other offroaders who were amazed that I was able to keep up with them on some of the more challenging trails. The body style is still attractive and it's perfect sized SUV, not too small, not too big.
Reliable dependable engine and transmission!! Swing-out spare tire, Winter Mode in the transmission, fold down rear seat (making the back area big for hauling stuff). I actually like the small triangular swingout front windows.
