Customer Reviews



Very good, reliable truck

Vehicle: 1997 Isuzu Rodeo S 4dr SUV

I've owned this truck for about 7 years and had no major issues of any kind. Just general maintenance, brakes, etc. Please do not save money on oil and this car may run for up to 200000 miles. Mine has approx 140000 miles, my friend has Trooper with over 200000 miles and it is still going strong. Use Castrol synthetic blend 5w/30 for your high mileage Isuzu truck.




Awesome workhorse

Vehicle: 1997 Isuzu Rodeo S 4dr SUV

I drive a paper route 7 days a week and go through autos, however, that stopped when my hubby bought this one by mistake at the auction. 4 cylinder, manual transmission, manual everything. In the last 3.5 years all we have done are oil, brakes, and tires. I drive 89,000 rough, killer miles every year. I never worry about this one leaving me stranded, unlike our new family car. I think this one will make a million miles. Best workhorse ever!! This is the workhorse that keeps on tickin' tickin' and tickin'. I am cruel to autos on paper routes, but this one is a keeper. Best mistake purchase my hubby ever made for me. Great, great, great!
