1991 Isuzu Trooper SE 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

200,000 miles with normal repairs (water pump, timing belt, radiator, ect,) Underpowered for the highway, but basic technology is reliable and it makes a good hunting/fishing rig for off road use. It is not capable for the rubicon trail as stock, but not many SUV's are, but it suits my needs and the square body holds a lot of volume and weight as it is built on the Isuzu pick up truck frame.

Quirky but definitely has its niche.

1991 Isuzu Trooper LS 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

Bought in '04, I'm the second owner of my Trooper. This vehicle has been through it all; wildfires, hurricanes, blizzards, tornadoes, sandstorms, towed a 5,000 lb trailer from Texas to Utah and got 22 mpg while doing it! It's had its moments, but these vehicles are so renowned for their toughness and versatility that there isn't a month that goes by where a 4x4 enthusiast offers to buy it (it's not for sale).


Best Features

Built like a tank! (the armor plating on the bottom goes to prove my point.) The modular seating can turn the back into a bed for nights on the beach (and you won't get stuck in the sand, either!) Amazing handling.


Worst Features

The 4L30E transmission is too old for this car. Any owner should have their transmission updated (they have updates that remove 'limp mode') Needs cup holders. Engine is too weak. I'm swapping in a 4.3L Power Steering mount prone to breaking. I drive without P/S. Windshield is vulnerable as flat.

1991 Isuzu Trooper S 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

Nothing feels better than driving this 'minisemi' You sit so high, your Scenery is excellent. Steel bumpers, not that plastic that dealership always selling now. Those steel bumper saved my trooper when i crash it, engine turned out fine nothing wrong. They couldn't have done a better job with the interior, no plastic overload, like there is nowadays, just the essential glove box, that's it. excellent foot room. IMO this stick shift is shift to end all shifts, you definitely have a clear sense of what gear your in. Also easy to Self maintain easiest access in the hood.


Best Features

Stick shift, low range gear box, like the style of parking brake. almost no electronics in this car except the entertainment system. pure mechanical genius


Worst Features

Isuzu step back up to the plate with another box on wheels. More engine power. Better gas mileage Those little triangle windows need like a permanent holder to keep them windowed.

1991 Isuzu Trooper XS 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

Had my trooper for a long time now, have 210k miles and counting. No real problems, great for hauling cargo. Lots of space when back seat is folded. Not the best on gas or most powerful engine, great 4x4. Gets the job done and takes all the abuse I can dish out. Made of steel, not plastic like all the cars made nowadays. It also feels great to drive around knowing that its a "real" SUV, not like these wannabees being made now that never see anything other than asphalt. Highly rec. to anyone looking for one. A great reliable car that won't quit. This car is still running strong and I feel I can still go at least another 100k miles before I replace the engine.


Best Features

Visibility, fun to drive, great cargo space.


Worst Features

Better fuel economy and a stronger engine.
