Love my trooper

Vehicle: 2002 Isuzu Trooper S 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

This is the third Trooper I have owned since 1986, and I will drive it until the tires fall off. I have 108,000 miles on it and only have had to replace the oxygen sensor, (50 bucks). All SUVs should be this reliable!

Still truckin'

Vehicle: 2002 Isuzu Trooper S 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

I bought my Trooper new in April 03 and have loved the experience other than the transmission had to be replaced at least 3 times. Since they put a rebuilt tranny in each time the dealer said that you never know how the quality would be. Luckily I've had the warranty and will definitely get rid of the truck when it hits 120,000 miles although I would have preferred to keep it longer. I don't like the way it burns oil either.




95 limited and 02 s

Vehicle: 2002 Isuzu Trooper S 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

bought a 95 limited right outta high school in 01 and it was indestructible!! traded it in on a tacoma. MISTAKE!! NOT HALF THE VEHICLE. just bought a 02 cause i have kids now,(still have lifted F 150 though,haha) love my 02 with 60000 miles. these suv's we're made to abuse. style meets utility all the way around. can't believe that isuzu makes nothing but 4-door GM knock-offs now.




Best value for your money

Vehicle: 2002 Isuzu Trooper S 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

It's very unfortunate that Isuzu has discontinued the Trooper. After researching Ford, Chevy and Toyota, the Trooper was hands down the best value for the money. It has more interior room than ALL mid-sized SUV's, and the exterior has a bold, strong stature. The 3.5L 215HP engine has plenty of power, in addition, it has an outstanding reliability record. From the drivers seat, you have a good idea what the road must look like from a big rig... It's outstanding. They're still out there, if you're in the market for a new SUV, you still have time to get the best value for your money.




A comfortable tank and fun

Vehicle: 2002 Isuzu Trooper S 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

I traded my Toyota Crew Cab for comfort but didn't want to giveup a great 4wd. The trooper met all my needs. It is great off road and very comfortable on long trips. If it had a pickup bed it would be perfect. If you want a true rough and tough SUV that looks fancy and is comfortable look no further.
