Other than the usual maintenance at 100,000, it has been great! Transmission rebuild at 135000, but no other problems. I really wish that Isuzu was still selling this model here in the US. I would love to have a new one. (After another 100,000!)

There seem to be many issues with high mileage. We bought brand new. Did not however have any problems til now. With 213600 miles on it, I just had to replace the wiring harness @ $2000.00 and this morning it would not move. It pulls a horse trailer with no problems.

Its been nothing but trouble since the day after i purchased it. All transmission problems, lots of jerking when i try to speed up, things fall apart easily on it, made very cheaply

I bought the vehicle brand new back in sept. of '01 and haven't had any major problems with it. This SUV is rock solid. I have put this suv through hell and back. I haven't changed the oil since november of last year and it has 162k miles on it. I've had it for so long i've given up on it dying. I take it offroad all the time which i've never gotten stuck. I drive it like i stole it atleast 95 mph on the highways everyday and drive in bumper to bumper in afternoons. I haven't had to replace anything really except the belts and a couple batteries. This is an awesome suv




Good experience

Only problem we experienced with this car was an EGR valve. Other than that, it's been an nice reliable SUV that has permitted fun excursions that would not otherwise be available from a smaller car.

I own a 2001 Rodeo. Even on the smoothest surfaces the car feels bumpy. Does anyone share this experience. If so, how did you solve the problem?...

Our 2001 Rodeo has really bad frame rust. There are holes in the rear frame (some several inches long) and the rear trailing arm broke loose from the frame!...
