1997 Isuzu Hombre XS 2dr Regular Cab SB


Got it new in 1/98.
Have 125k on it now.
Alternator went out at 110k, and A/C compressor went out at 113k.
Replaced both coil packs recently, and one sensor was acting up - which directly affected the coil packs.
Other than that - absolutely nothing has gone wrong.
That ain't too bad for 13 years and that many miles.
Very, very, very dependable unit.
The tires can be a bit of a pain to change if you have a flat.
Have actually had to take a sledge-hammer to the inner-sides of the tire to bang them off rims, but other than that small annoyance, this thing has been absolutely great to deal with.

Best Features

Has NEVER let me down. Not exactly a rail dragster at all, but I've gotten as much as 28 mpg on the highway out of it. Add to that - it's got an 18.5 gallon tank, so the range between fill-ups is awesome.

Worst Features

The problem of removing tires.
