Bought new in 1993, and 300,000 miles later is still going strong. One of the best vehicles I've ever purchased in terms of reliability. Solid,strong and sturdy; handles well and very maneuverable. Simple, uncomplicated interior features, dashboard full of "on/off" knobs, crank window handles, radio/cassette player, no electronic door locks, no security alarms...nothing to break! Tremendous amount of storage capacity. Kept on regular maintenance schedule since new, and though some old parts have been replaced with new factory parts, it's all to be considered part of it's long life. Lots of people look and wave while driving, especially other Trooper owners. Thanks Isuzu!

I have a manual transmission Trooper S. I own it for 16 Years already. I like its exterior and interior design. However, the enginer burns the oil, I will need to add 1 quarter of the oil every 1000 miles. I replaced the whole transmission couple years ago. It cost me $3000+. Now it works fine, but the speakers were not working for a while already. My brother suggested me to trade it in and buy a Hybrid SUV and get the $4500 rebate from the goverment.

It all started when I was looking for my first suv. I drove just about all makes & models of suvs there are & just wasn't pleased, usually it was about the interior layout. I came across a 93 model, fair priced & got it. I have had it now about 5 years & I am as pleased now as I was when I got it. I had planned to add a lot of improvements to it such as window tint, K&N filter, some suspension upgrades to mainly improve handling, namely cornering :) but have decided (after driving a 1998 & 2000 model trooper) that I think I'll simply trade up. BIG improvements on handling & power in these models as the 98's & up got a 215 hp 24 valve dohc & 230 ft. lb. in torque upgrade.
