Have owned this vehicle for 12 years and have put over 200k miles on it. Liked driving it from day one and still do; lots of room, plenty of power, very comfy, great visibility. Especially good in winter; 4wd, heated seats, headlight washers, heated mirrors & rear window. Very easy on tires; over 70k a set. The transmission is weak and have rebuilt it twice (sourced from GM!). Have also replaced a starter, master cylinder, and power steering pump. The rest has all been maintenance items. Starting to get some rust now so am looking at a later model!

The body is tough, it withstands all weather. The exterior is plush and comfortable and durable. Reliability is good it can put alot of miles on and still maintain performance,with minor to major flaws in the system. The fuel econmony is great if your vehicle is in pretty good shape. It is fun to drive. The overall performance is good.

This has been the best car we have ever owned. No problems, still on the original rotors. Replaced the starter at 120K. Only oil, gas, and filters. My wife t-boned and they replaced the grill and quarter panels - still drives like a champ. I live in the South, moved to Alaska, drove all the way pulling a trailer. Spent 3 years there, bad roads - the stories about the ALCAN HWY are true, drove back. Haven't even bothered to do a wheel alignment. I'm not very good about prevent maintenance and the Trooper still treats me good - I don't deserve such a good car! I am buying a another car to commute in DC because of the 15-17 mpg but I'm not selling. My sons (6, 11) will be driving her some day!

Bought this truck three years ago with just under 100,000 miles on it. I have not had to put a penny into it as far as repairs are concerned. At 140,000 still starts on the first crank. Tons of room for band equipment and GREAT on long trips. No for those concerned with fuel economy (17-19)MPG average, but will go ANYWHERE anytime. Easy to work on/ Easy not to have to. I love the truck.

I purchased the love of my life, the
Trooper in 1994. I've had this car
for 10yrs. It has 168,+++ miles with
the original clutch (and I tow a
boat!). I've changed the brakes
twice. Two starter motors, steering
pump, shocks, tires and air
conditioning clutch. Nothing major.
I have been plagued with a noisy
lifter from 500 miles that comes and
goes. Now i'm starting to get noise
from the rear axle and gear box.
Nothing bad yet but concerned. I am
looking for another Trooper but can
only find automatics, I'm a diehard
manual transmission only. I'm blown
away that Isuzu doesn't make these
wonderful vehicles any more.

Other than the transmission which I
fixed twice @ 110000 and then at 115000
this has been one of the best cars I've
owned.I would by another one.
BTW the best 4x4 I've ever owed was a
1987 Ford bronco II Engine went @160000
great size for off road and ground
