I did a ton of research before I bought
my latest Rodeo. My wife and I had to
replace our '91 Rodeo after having
driven it over 100k miles. I read
consumer reports and did a lot of
research on this site as well. For the
money the Rodeo came out on top again.
So we test drove it. Compared to
everything in it's class it was the
hands down winner. Best things are the
great seats and the great stereo we got
w/ the 6 CD changer. Worst thing is the
gas milage. Doesn't get 20+ MPG at 80
Stereo, Front Seats, power, visibility,
versatile carrying capacity.
Seat belt retraction (when you release
the seat belt) wore out really quick.
Handle on the seat back release came
off within the year.
