I own a Rodeo and wanted a Trooper

1997 Isuzu Trooper LS 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

My wife and I just bought our Trooper w/ 133 k miles for 3K. The previous owner told me about the oil cooler o-rings leaking oil. Through the research I had done, I knew this was a common and easy to fix problem. Isuzu fixed the oil leak problem in 98, but it is very common in every year before that. ALL ISUZU'S USE LOTS OF OIL. It does not affect performance or longevity. I feel like I could go anywhere in our Trooper. It still looks sharp, but at 6'4" and 300 lb. it is a little cramped for me in the drivers seat. My kids have much more space in the back seat than they do in my Rodeo.

Review

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.

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.

Had 1 problem in 2 years, a broken power steering hose. A little heavy on the gas consumption, but it is a big vehicle. Nice tall ride, able to see all the other idiots coming at me in traffic. Comfy.

This thing rocks!

Review

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!!

Review

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!

The best value out there for a vehicle that is 100% reliable, roomy and honestly fun to drive. I didn'y think I would like it as much as I do.
