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

Review

1st SUV driven & drives nicely like car. Drove on gravel roads w/ pot holes, in pouring rain & big puddles & handles much better than my 92 Accord. It's sluggish, compared to Accord, but goes well when pressing gas & A/C is on. Back door opens sideways. Can't drive w/ back window open. Seats are comfortable while driving or riding whereas the editor review said it wasn't. Average of 18.5 MPG w/ A/C on. Towing sounds good from the specs of 3500 lbs, but haven't tried towing anything yet (manual says don't drive over 45 MPH). The engine is quiet after 1st gear when & not much road noise, even w/ large tires (16" P245). In first gear it's noisier.

Favorite Features

Radio volume & changer controls on steering wheel. The way it handles on rough roads. There's a digital odometer plus 2 trip ones. The map lights on the rear view mirror. The way the interior lights turn on & stay on until you start it when you use the remote keyless at night.

Suggested Improvements

Have 2 cup holders up front & 3 for the back. Seat belt strap doesn't retrack well. Door guards on all models. Features on CD player aren't obvious on how to use. Cruise control doesn't stay active once you shut off & turn on the engine. Steering wheel is too sensitive.
