Since I have bought this vehicle there
have been some things that I have been
dissapointed with like the fuel
economy, but overall I would say it is
a good buy for the price compared to
other SUVs in it's class.
Sport drive feature in the luxury
model. Outside look is great. Trunck
space is good and inside design for
storage is good.
Fuel mileage should be improved.
Interior design could use a more sleek
and modern design(looks too bland).
Handling on curves could be improved.
Taking curves at much of any speed and
you feel as if you will turn over.
I've had my Rodeo for about 3 months.
No problems at all. It has the Direct
Injection, 250-Hp V-6 engine, and it
will definitely move. I was astounded
by the performance of this engine -
especiallly when compared to the [Rodeo}
standard V-6. No contest whatsoever.
If you get one of these, get the Direct
Injection. You won't regret it.
The performance of the Direct Injection
engine. The size of the truck. How
roomy the back is with the seats folded
down (they fold flat). The 8-speaker
stereo is adequate, but leaves room for
The armrests are very uncomfortable.
More care should be given to interior
appointments. A better stereo would
help. Get rid of the hood prop, and put
some spring hinges on it. Make the
shifter so it locks into gear. The
slighest bump will knock the shifter out
of gear. Lift-up tailgate.
I think the Rodeo is a fun car to
drive it needs a little improvement...
the interior is not that pretty, the
cloth of the seats is a very cheap
maetrial, but they are not that
uncomfortable... very roomy, and the
cargo area is huge... i cant really
the sound system i think is pretty
good, and it has great tires (isuzu
rally did it good, with the sensors on
it uses a lot of gas... and the
breaking system really sucks...
Consumer guides did not rate this SUV
very highly claiming rough ride.
Obviously they did not drive mine.
Hugs the road tight, not rough as other
SUV's I've test driven (Highlander,
Sorrento, and the new Chevy one). No
fancy buttons and bells, but has
everything I need. Isuzu gives you
more bang for your money. Simple but
all anyone would want in an SUV.
Drives like a car but has spacing and
durability of an SUV.
