Vehicle2004 Isuzu Rodeo S Rwd 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewBought 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 FeaturesThe day I get rid of them (couldn't sell, always "upside down", even after paying $10K down payment).
Worst FeaturesQuit 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).
