1996 Isuzu Trooper SE 4dr SUV 4WD
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
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.
Lots of headroom, comfy and roomy
inside, great ground clearance.
BETTER GAS MILEAGE, Arm rests on all
models, more thigh support for front
seats on manually-adjustable seats
