1996 Isuzu Trooper SE 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

I bought mine with around 40K miles. I now have 81K. It's basically reliable, but the 4WD whines noisily. I have a slight oil leak in one of the valve covers. My biggest disappointment has been the gas mileage; which should be better for a 3.2 liter engine. I'm pretty conservative behind the wheel, and get less than 15 mpg around town. On long trips I can get up to 18, but only if I keep the speed below 70. One final problem is that I have a slight coolant leak in the heater, which would cost a fortune to repair. It's not that noticeable; but in cold, wet weather, it's hard to keep the front window totally defrosted.

Favorite Features

Lots of headroom, comfy and roomy inside, great ground clearance.

Suggested Improvements

BETTER GAS MILEAGE, Arm rests on all models, more thigh support for front seats on manually-adjustable seats
