1998 Acura SLX 4dr SUV 4WD


Just bought this car and while driving it home from the dealer it overheated. I replaced the t-stat, and radiator due to dealer putting stop leak in motor to cover up bad head gasket or cracked head. It has been towed further than driven so far. I am taking it back to the dealer under the lemon law, and conditions not discovered during test drive. The engine is also an oil consumer I recently researched and found out on the web. Isuzu is not willing to repair this issue on models made prior to 2000, so drive with a few cases of motor oil when you go on road trips. I may be in for a long haul of repairs on this one.

Best Features

Engine quietness, power, luxury features. Compact size for parking. Big interior space, High ground clearance.

Worst Features

Newer engine, larger radiator for cooling system. Better fuel mileage. Car also sways in turns quite a bit.
