Fun drive, gd pwr. 19 mpg city instlld
K&N air filter, 3 mpg imprvmnt. Seats
are bad for pssngrs. Drvng position
bad. Premium sound system gd. Engine gd
pwr, hve had engine knck frm day 1,
told to use prm gas, did, knck still
there. Int cabin noisy on frwy,
road/wind noise. Resale value bad.
$27000 new, 2 years later value $13900.
Worst resale value in class. Have
Explorer a year older blue booked
$6000 more than Rodeo. If you dont plan
on keeping Rodeo long dont buy new, buy
used let someone else take huge
depreciation hit. Have researched used
Rodeos, market filled with low mile
Rodeos cheap. Does this say something
about realiability of Rodeo?
Premium sound system, cargo room,
engine power, warranty, fun to drive.
Better seats, more extras, i.e rear
reading lamps and A/C, improve cabin
noise, smoother ride, better suspension
system, different style of tailgate,
and better customer service at
dealership and service deptarment.
