The first car

by on
Vehicle: 1996 Isuzu Trooper

This is my first car and it is great. I have 221,000 miles on it and I have only had to fix the axle boots. This car has been used for moving things and has showed its power. I couldn't have asked for a more dependable first car.

Best vehicle we've owned!

Vehicle: 1996 Isuzu Trooper

We bought this Trooper new and at 200,000 miles it is still going strong. The interior and exterior still look like new. The a/c gave out at about 120,000 miles. We had to replace the rotors at 140,000 miles and the mechanic couldn't believe it. The muffler was replaced at 150,000. We love the cargo room and passenger roominess plus the durability of the interior. Living in the upper peninsula of Michigan with tons of snow, I always feel secure in knowing I can make it home in all kinds of weather.

Very reliable and maintenance free

Vehicle: 1996 Isuzu Trooper

We bought our 1996 Trooper used in 1999. This was our 2nd Trooper. We bought one brand new in 1991 and drove it until this purchase. This vehicle has been awesome. Has great acceleration/pick up, extremely comfortable and roomy. We just replaced the power steering hose. Otherwise, it has been maintenance free. It's our 3rd vehicle and I love driving it more than my Mercedes wagon. Will drive it until the wheels fall off.

What's New for 1997

Antilock brakes are now standard on all models, and dealers get a wider profit margin to help increase sales. Despite delirious requests by a certain consumer group, Isuzu will not equip the Trooper with training wheels for 1997.

I have a 1997 trooper. One of the vacuum cylinders on the 4WD actuator has some corrosion and will cause the 4WD to not engage. I can disassemble the actuator and clean up the corrosion and it will ...

First I thought only 4wd Troopers were sold here in 1999. That being the case if your alignment shop only shows one setting that should be correct....

I looked very seriously at 1997 FJ80s as well but the Trooper is crisper handling (despite the soft suspension)and gets better gas mileage. I drive a lot of miles so the latter is a big issue. I fou...
