I bought this new in 2000.
It now has 125K miles and purs like a kitten.
Feels the bumps in the road more than some other SUV's and that's because the Rodeo was built on a truck frame.
I understood this when I bought it.
The Rodeo came with a 10 year 100,000 mile warranty.
Try to find that today.
You may get a 5 year 100K mi but nobody wants to go 10 years.
Other than the usual maintenance wear and tare stuff my Isuzu had been great.
I think this year I'll replace the sound system and look for some new rims.
It has great reaction and control and also great pick-up.
