Review of the 1997 Isuzu Trooper

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Huge interior, excellent lease deals, good off-road ability, outstanding visibility

  • What's New for 1997

Vehicle: 1997 Isuzu Trooper S 4dr SUV 4WD

I'm the original owner. Have 196,000 miles on it. I'm on my 3rd starter. Talked with other owners with some problem...hard to replace too. Have to drop crossmember. What's up with filling the transmission fluid...stinks! It's hard to get to and no dip stick...who's the DIP? Better replace your tranny filter or it'll start bucking like a bronco. Under powered with rather lousy mpg. Keep up with the tunes and it'll keep going. Great 4wd with studs in winter since i live in snow country.




The most underrated suv ever.

I had this Isuzu for almost three years and it has been a real blessing for the whole family. It has the power one needs and the reliability to take you anywhere. This is way better car than any Ford or Chevy SUV can be.




This thing rocks!

Rock solid truck. The best I've ever seen. Here's a cool thing in the midwest. Show me one that is all rusted out. You won't find many because of the excellent ground clearance and plastic coverings over the wheelwells. This truck is a dream for all of you who have to handle offroading and tough weather. Bring on the Landcruisers and LandRovers!!




Great truck for the money!

Purchased our very clean '97 Isuzu Trooper in September 2002 with 90,000 miles for $8000. Vehicle currently has 137,000 miles and the only repair we have had was a new fuel pump. This is a solid, quality truck from a little known manufacturer. We love our Trooper!




Solid like a rock....

Great for a family; Great head room; Fun to sit above the Traffic; No mechanical problems at all; This truck took our family on many long vacations and we used every bit of the large cargo area.
