It's Cheap & You get what you pay for

2000 Isuzu Rodeo S 4dr SUV
I have about 52,000 miles on my 2000 Rodeo. The ride has grown increasingly bouncy; it's now feels similar to a carnival ride. This is particularly bad, because it aggravates this vehicles rattle quotient - everything rattles.
Isuzu dealers are few and far between and they act like it. My dealer was never able to identify problems (or even agree there was a problem) on the first visit making each repair a multi visit battle (I did eventually win many, but not all of the battles).
Unless you absolutely can’t afford something else – I’d look elsewhere. Most any other vehicle out there is superior to this one.
Run; don't walk, out of your Isuzu dealer.
Better than average gas mileage for an SUV this size (I average in the high teens about 5 gallons more per gallon than my friends Blazer).
