1997 Isuzu Trooper S 4dr SUV 4WD


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.

1997 Isuzu Trooper S 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

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.


Favorite Features

The A/C works great and the 4x4 is just amazing.


Suggested Improvements

The Trooper needs a less boxier exterior and it needs to improve its gas mileage.

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!!


Favorite Features

Tough!! Fun to drive, handles great on the highway, super reliable. Handles everything you throw at it.


Suggested Improvements

gas milage is my only concerns these days, but with some Bosch+4s, K&N filter, and synthetic, it seems to have improved.

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!


Favorite Features

Boxy style (like a Land Rover), high seating position, excellent visibility, four wheel disc brakes with ABS, four wheel drive that uses a lever to engage, has a ton of space for hauling gear, reliabile, exclusivity since there are few on the road


Suggested Improvements

Rear wiper doesn't clean off much, Isuzu dealers are tough to find.
