Bought used with low miles, plan jane suv 4 cyl and 5 speed manual with ac, it never let me down. I have taken it across country 2 times in hot weather and it ran cool and ac worked fine, I got about 27-28 mpg on the trips. The only thing I've done to it is put a battery and a k and n air filter on it in 4 years. It just runs and runs.

I love my Rodeo, but it doesn't love me. I have had it in the shop for warranty work 7 times since I bought it on November 28, 2003. It is going in this week for its eighth trip. I have had sensors go bad, the catalytic converter replaced, the transmission rebuilt, the exhaust manifold replaced, and this week its getting a new fuel pump. The clutch is tricky and there is still a knock in the rear end, but I've gotten used to that noise and learned the secrets of the clutch. I may have just gotten a lemon, but based on the amount of time that I've spent in the service lounge I wouldn't buy another Isuzu Rodeo.

I am very suprised. I have been
looking for a mid-size SUV for my wife
for some time now and we have had our
Isuzu for a week now and our very
excited. I sale pre-owned vehicles for
a living and have never been in a
vehicle that rode as efficient as this
one. It's not the biggest and the
best. But it's the best value for the

When I test drove it, I knew that I
really wanted this SUV. I love the
confort, the smooth drive, I don't
think it looks cheap inside...Xtera
looks cheap inside. The warrinties are
the best, price is good too.

Vehicle is simple and strait forward. I
like the controls that take the mystery
out of running a vehicle. Drives well
but is a little truck-like in ride. One
major problem that took 2 weeks to fix
centered around the ABS system. The
part was on factory order... The front
seats limit the back passengers leg
room. Power is weak so get the bigger
engine. The front seats need to go back
further, so if your over 6 feet tall...
Also the steering wheel should be
angled higher. Beautiful to look at
though. Not a bad price considering the
other SUV's on the market.
