1998 Isuzu Amigo S V6 2dr SUV 4WD w/Soft Top


Inferior dealer service and poor Isuzu warranty! After 8 months the red paint started to fade bad, dealer would not correct. At 20K engine had bad intake leak, continuous stalling any the alarm was now going off when ever it wanted. Switch for heated mirrors was also replaced 3x. At 30K, 4wd would not engage when it was cold out(when you need it most), dealer couldn't fix. Over-acting ABS, no good in the rain. At 50K I had to have it repainted, out of my pocket because the truck was now pink! At 60K the engine developed a major oil leak. Will never buy a Isuzu/GM product again...

Best Features

Nice to be able to drop the top in the summer and blast through the snow in the winter. The V6 has decent power for such a small truck.

Worst Features

Better warranty, and more knowledgeable mechanics working on these trucks. More clutch feedback. Also, fix the annoying banging of the soft top when you go over large bumps. And just plain build them better, losing GM would be a start...
