I bought my Amigo new in 1994, today 2003, I have only had to change the oil...and replace the battery one winter..I still have the original brakes! This little truck has been driven from Miami to Iowa and back...up and down the East Coast...it's never failed me, broke down or even sputtered...I bought a new Rodeo and am having to come to term with selling it...I have nothing but great things to say about Isuzu and the Amigo....
I bought this car when I was a junior in high school. I was most impressed with the looks and I wanted to show off my 4x4 vehicle to my friends. I made a big mistake buying this car. If you are thinking of buying this model car, I would suggest that you not buy it.
A small suv, but fun to own. Summers with the top down and enough power to pull jet ski's allows you to do and go where you want. Winter comes and the 4wd allows you the ability to come and go as you please. Sharp looking suv, with fun written all over it. It is reliable and has avoided any major problems through the years. The ride is definetly a truck feal, but thats what Isuzu is all about.
125,000 miles now and never a problem. Driven in town after 22 in. snowfall with no problem. Carry 2 bikes and kayak on roof rack with no problem. Hauled stuff that people with bigger SUV's couldn't because of open roof. Another reviewer said replacement tops hard to find but not true, have replaced mine 2 times in 12 years by ordering online and both replacements were better than the original design.
I bought my Amigo brand new and have replaced the tires and clutch only once during the last 10 years. I never had anything major problems and can't tell you how thankful I am for that! My Amigo has never been a regret and has always been reliable!
