2003 Isuzu Rodeo S V6 Rwd 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

First SUV I've bought. For the price, its great. Plenty of interior room. Nice looking outside. Not too big to park in a normal parking spot, but not too small either.


Favorite Features

volume controls on the steering wheel, keyless entry, 6 disc in dash CD changer


Suggested Improvements

better gas milage, can feel every bump hit, it'd be nice if the "power" and "ice" buttons were somewhere else (im always accidentally hitting them), dont like the side opening back door

Review

I am very happy with my new Rodeo. It gets a lot of use in the mountains and I am very happy with its off-road performance. The seats are much more comfortable than older models we tested. Roomy, sporty, attractive and useful. The biggest complaint that we have with our Rodeo is that it is next to impossible to get crossbars for the roof rack. The crossbars were taken off by the Isuzu design group due to noise issues, but were not offered at purchase and aren't offered by Isuzu as an upgrade or kit. If you plan on using the rack, ask your dealer about it when you purchase your Rodeo to save the headache of trying to add crossbars later on.


Favorite Features

The power feature works well in higher altitudes when more power is needed. Snow feature is nice for starting out on slick surfaces. Higher suspension with more travel than comparable SUV's is a plus for off-road performance.


Suggested Improvements

Our only other complaint is the bad smell in the vents if you leave the AC on when you park. Good luck with your vehicle purchase.
