2002 Isuzu Axiom 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

The vehicle has been quite good and not required other than normal maintenance. Got it to tow my boat and it is quite adequate. Need to replace rear wiper arm and it is a very non standard design, though the front arms are standard. Can't buy it anywhere. Top heavy like all SUV/4wd and need to be aware of that. Gas mileage is poor - average 19.5 under the best of conditions, much worse with a load.


Best Features

Dash command center is great once you learn all the options. CD player is good too. Very crisp and attractive lines.


Worst Features

Create some space for storing small items as there is none and they go in the large storage area. Get a standard arm for the rear wiper.

2002 Isuzu Axiom 2WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Great truck, but only flaw is how the material used, such as paint and trim; they somewhat fade and come loose. Great overall truck, great bang for the buck!


Best Features

Style, gas mileage (for the year, 2002). I love the quiet ride.


Worst Features

Clear coat on paint.

2002 Isuzu Axiom 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This SUV is a death trap with frequent mechanical and other problems. (Don't worry I do have one good thing to say (see below): Bad: 1. Brakes = ABS kicks in on dry pavement 2. Stability - slipping & sliding regardless of 2WD or TOD or 4WD selection (I mean slipping and sliding!) 3. Mechanical defects (jerky drive, shuts down while driving!, try starting a shut-down vehicle on a highway going at 55 mph) 6. They LIE about the mileage (mine gives 15mpg on the highway (and I am a slooow driver) 7. To lower back seats requires lifting the bench (seats), removing the neck support, finally lower the back 8. Removing and returning the spare tire - tow driver couldn't! Good: 1. Electric seat adju


Best Features

Electric seat adjustment. Moon roof. Thats it !


Worst Features

Don't sell this car please ! You will cause many road accidents.

2002 Isuzu Axiom 2WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought the Axiom pre-owned and at 73,000+ miles it seems to be a good buy as SUVs go. I haven't had any complaints that the factory could have addressed with the exception of the sound system. Getting the base model I didn't expect much but the speakers are pretty dull. I have read reviews about the tires as well and mine looked to be a fresh set, but they do squeal with most maneuvering action that didn't get the squeal from my last car.


Best Features

Center console, power windows and door locks, theft deterrent system, full size spare.


Worst Features

Better sound system. Better tires off the showroom floor. More leg room. CD changer in dash instead of headrest.
