2004 Isuzu Rodeo S Rwd 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Bought TWO of these dogs on the same day (what was I thinking) for wife and daughter, hoping to get them into something reliable and safe - just the opposite. After 20K miles, major items began to fail such as catalytic converter (complete failure), transmission oil leakage (required complete transmission replacement), engine starter failure (replaced / both cars), ABS brake failures, throttle control valves, EGR valves, gas gauges, central computer, radio (lights, speakers), along with multiple factory recall repairs, some of which required more than a day to complete (without a supplied rental). There is NO feeling of dependability.


Best Features

The day I get rid of them (couldn't sell, always "upside down", even after paying $10K down payment).


Worst Features

Quit trying to make an SUV out of inferior subcontracted parts / components on a truck chassis. Center of gravity is too high, almost causing rollover after a blowout (rear) on inferior grade factory tires (Goodyear Wrangler).

2004 Isuzu Rodeo S 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

As a 2nd geneartion buyer of Isuzu, I am very satisfied with this vehicle. Isuzu's are low maintenance and I will buy a 3rd one. Other well known companies use Isuzu trucks and market them as their own. The Chevrolet Trailblazer is the Isuzu Ascender. The Honda Passport is the Isuzu Rodeo. This should tell the sceptics something about the quality.


Best Features

I love the big tires on this truck Bridgestone P245 70r/16's. Very few trucks its size has tires that big. It also has a wide back seat. I have no trouble fitting 3 children (2 in car seats) in the back. And most importantly, low maintenance. My 1994 Amigo is still going strong


Worst Features

The fuel economy is not good. This truck can suck some gas.
