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.
