2004 Isuzu Rodeo S Rwd 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 5M)
My fourth Isuzu SUV. Bought it new in 04. This ride has given me more than my money's worth. I've always liked the looks, the performance and the reliability,- no unpleasant surprises. Predictable maintenance history and a compatible vehicle for rack systems, hitch systems, etc. It's flexible for carrying all sorts of cargo. Have put 112k miles on this thing and if it dies tomorrow, I'm still be glad I bought it.
Good overall utilitarian work horse with adequate power and features for a very reasonable price. Like the looks too.
Would have liked a firmer suspension on the 2WD, and a standard class III tow package. For me, a bit more leg room up front would have been great. Couldn't afford the 3.5 engine at the time, but understand it's a real rocket. Have no complaints with the 3.2.
