Personal Expereince w. 2000 Isuzu.

2000 Isuzu Rodeo S V6 4dr SUV
Overall pleased w/vechicle. Problems
with transmission module and wiper
modulation problem. Corrected under
warranty. Unfortunately there was a
wiring short somewhere passed the
distributor that immediately stranded
the unit. If on a major interstate it
would have been a real safety issue. 5
year free towing got it to the dealer
where repair bill was $600 - just out
of warranty. Good national customer
service. Local dealer service leaves
something to be desired.
Very Strong Motor and Starter. Easily
pulls a small trailer. Good A/C.
Interior fabric very durable. Still
like new. Roomy cargo area when rear
seats are lowered. Sharp exterior!
Jerky transmission. Brakes sometimes
feel mushy, especially in wet weather
or under pressure of emergency stop.
Very poor fuel ecomomy in city. Very
noisy car. Aftermarket (i.e. ugraded)
speakers were of little use. Clock is
