By Mr.Rodeo on
2004 Isuzu Rodeo S 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
Don't listen to the professional
critics, take the word of somebody
who's owned one for 3+ years. Just
traded in the 2001 Rodeo Sport for the
4Door model(expecting child). As
impressed with this one as I was the
previous model. This one seems to have
a smoother ride than the sport though.
The warranty speaks for the reliability
of the vehicle. Do you really think a
car company would place a 7/75k mile
warranty on a vehicle that always
needed service...Thus the reason Chevy
n Ford only offer 3/36k. Yes we had a
few problems w/ our 2001, but nothing
that wasn't covered by the warranty.
The real selling point for this vehicle
is the price. $20,500! Loaded, this
thing compares to a Pathfinder.
*Price- $3500 below invoice w/ current
*Performance- No it won't drive as
plush as grandma's car. But, can
grandma's car climb a mountain via a
logging trail. Yes the 3.5 liter DI
*Reliability- I wouldn't have bought
another Isuzu if I wasn't impressed the
*Lighted Door instrumentation- Power
door controls are hard to see at night.
*I wish they offered a jacked up model
w/ little wheels and big tires...
*Continue the good work Isuzu. I know
this is the last year of the Rodeo.
Can't wait til 2007 to see whats next.
