2003 Isuzu Rodeo S V6 Rwd 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 4A)
My girlfriend bought the Rodeo since we wanted something that would haul a pop up camper and also offered covered storage for all our stuff. 'Twitch' has been a great little ride. The Bridgestones are a bit loud, but nothing that turning up the radio won't cure. Had to replace rotors and brakes at 51K; put powerslots and ceramic pads on her and now she'll stop on a dime! The shocks wore out quickly in the rear, so I replaced F/R shocks with Bilsteins and now all is well. Good acceleration, and 22mpg average gas mileage. Seats are comfortable for short hauls but a little uncomfortable on long trips. Overall, we love our little 'Twitch'!
6-disk CD player, good sound system. Great acceleration, and quite dependable.
Seats could be a little more adjustable for comfort. Lumbar feels like a crowbar is pressing into your back after 100 miles or so.
