1999 Isuzu Trooper S 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

This is a truck & is built like all trucks should be. Used for work commute & as a family vehicle. Past problems/repairs: Both front pass windows came off track (tried to put them down while frozen). AC leak in 2000. 2 cd players in 2001. Life Maintenance: Oil change every 10,000 miles or so. 4 Batteries, 4 sets tires, 2 exhaust systems from the cat on back. 4 maybe 5 sets brake pads. timing belt @ 75k as recommended. Big repair$: 2011- Alternator, 4 rotors, pads & 2 rear calipers. Never touched: motor, AT, Driveline components, susp/steer comp, plugs, wires, cooling, ps system, electrical, body hdwe.


Best Features

Pros: Big heavy & beast-like solid truck feel. Spacious interior. Seating position. Body/hdwe integrity. Cons: Gas mileage. Uses oil since 75k. 2011: Tranny slips now & then at low engine vacuum. Never got used to: The side swing tailgate door. Really gonna miss: The worlds largest sunroof. This has been a very good quality vehicle. I'd buy another Isuzu if only they made pick up trucks. Replace 5/26/11 with 2011 Nissan Frontier 4 door 4wd

1999 Isuzu Trooper S 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

I've had 2 Troopers and loved them both. Large size SUV interior without taking up 3 parking spots. Very reliable. You can't find a better SUV for the price.


Best Features

Exterior mounted spare frees up room inside. 4 wheel drive system is flawless. Interior space and cargo room is excellent. Boxy look.


Worst Features

The 3.5 engine could use more power of course.

1999 Isuzu Trooper S 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

We purchased our vehicle new in 1999. Since then we have accumulated 172,400 miles. Accomplish recommended maintenance when required and keep driving. Agree it burns oil but which it states it would in the owner manual. I have driven many SUV's over the years and have yet to find one that I enjoy as much as my 1999 Trooper. If the engine should go out, I would not hesitate to replace the engine and keep driving. Car looks like it did the day we bought it. No corrosion and the paint is beautiful. The only way I would get rid of my Trooper is if they made another one.


Best Features

Handling, large moon roof, heated side mirrors, adjustable arm rests and the hidden storage compartment.


Worst Features

The oil consumption but it is a non player because the vehicle is not made anymore.

better gas mileage, arm rest for driver and front passenger,

Review

At 209K miles we are about to trade in our trooper due to the C4C program. This is the 4th trooper in the family, 3 for us and 1 for our son. We have had no unexpected problems and I'm sorry that we have to sell it now, but the time is right.


Best Features

4wd is not needed often, but when it is it is absolutely fantastic! Ride is good and the SUV matches its name....a real Trooper!


Worst Features

More driver leg room.
