2000 Isuzu Rodeo LS 4dr SUV


Review

purchased a new isuzu rodeo LS 2WD in
2000. up to recently the car has been
very reliable. around 30,000 miles had
problems with transmission, eventhough
i have performed a transmission fluid
flush, granted it was not done at the
dealership as they ususally charge
quite a premium. perhaps that was my
fault for not taking it there in the
first place. luckily, the warranty
covered the repair. besides other
minor problems (usual wear and tear)
the car has been very reliable. the
only suggested improvments consist of
improved suspension (very stiff), and
improved noise control. otherwise good
vehicle for its price.


Best Features

Review

I have always had an Isuzu, I find the
to be very long lasting and quite
reliable. The Rodeo is the mid size one
and it offers a lot of SUV for the dollar.


Best Features

Reliability


Worst Features

Higher suspension.

2000 Isuzu Rodeo S V6 4dr SUV


Review

Overall pleased w/vechicle. Problems
with transmission module and wiper
modulation problem. Corrected under
warranty. Unfortunately there was a
wiring short somewhere passed the
distributor that immediately stranded
the unit. If on a major interstate it
would have been a real safety issue. 5
year free towing got it to the dealer
where repair bill was $600 - just out
of warranty. Good national customer
service. Local dealer service leaves
something to be desired.


Best Features

Very Strong Motor and Starter. Easily pulls a small trailer. Good A/C. Interior fabric very durable. Still like new. Roomy cargo area when rear seats are lowered. Sharp exterior!


Worst Features

Jerky transmission. Brakes sometimes feel mushy, especially in wet weather or under pressure of emergency stop. Very poor fuel ecomomy in city. Very noisy car. Aftermarket (i.e. ugraded) speakers were of little use. Clock is dated.

Review

Bought new after my '99 durango was
totaled. Never had it back to dealer
for anything. Oil changes and a new
battery have been it. No squeaks,
rattles nothing. Very smooth power,
added a flowmaster muffler and k&n
filter, no problems. Gas mileage is
typical, even better then most. Durango
was 11 at best mpg. Ford explorer 4.o
was at 14. Isuzu is at 16-19 mpg.
Depreciation is only setback. Shouldn't
be considering they built the rodeo for
honda as a passport. Best vehicle I'vve
owned for no problems in 20 years.


Best Features

Power, and torque. 6 disc changer in dash. Still fresh body style after 4 years.


Worst Features

Easier backseat fold down process. Louder stereo, 500 watts and a sub would be nice.
