2004 Isuzu Rodeo S Rwd 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Consumer guides did not rate this SUV
very highly claiming rough ride.
Obviously they did not drive mine.
Hugs the road tight, not rough as other
SUV's I've test driven (Highlander,
Sorrento, and the new Chevy one). No
fancy buttons and bells, but has
everything I need. Isuzu gives you
more bang for your money. Simple but
all anyone would want in an SUV.


Best Features

Drives like a car but has spacing and durability of an SUV.


Worst Features

Standard equiped running boards.

2004 Isuzu Rodeo S Rwd 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I love the perfomance of my Isuzu
Rodeo. It drives very smooth. Very
comfortable and sporty. My vechicle is
very reliable and I wouldn't trade it
in except for another Isuzu Rodeo.

Worst Features

automatic sunroof pull back, if it hasn't already been designed....i do have a later model!

2004 Isuzu Rodeo S 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

The rear Passenger doors need to open
wider. The seats needs more lumbar
support and seat inclination needs
adjustment. Mine, a 2003 Rodeo, needs a
bigger console. My pistol barely fits
in the console, let alone any extra
mags or ammo. A/C works great! The
suspension needs to be stiffer and
upgraded before doing any off roading.
Overall the Rodeo is an excellent
product for the money.


Best Features

Easy to drive, tight turn radius, easy to get into tight spaces. Good visibilty. And it has a real frame and strong construction.


Worst Features

Upgrade of suspension. Needs sway bars and hevy shocks, springs, and suspension linkage. Upgrade the interior ergonomics and istall a bigger console.

Review

Don't listen to the professional
critics, take the word of somebody
who's owned one for 3+ years. Just
traded in the 2001 Rodeo Sport for the
4Door model(expecting child). As
impressed with this one as I was the
previous model. This one seems to have
a smoother ride than the sport though.
The warranty speaks for the reliability
of the vehicle. Do you really think a
car company would place a 7/75k mile
warranty on a vehicle that always
needed service...Thus the reason Chevy
n Ford only offer 3/36k. Yes we had a
few problems w/ our 2001, but nothing
that wasn't covered by the warranty.
The real selling point for this vehicle
is the price. $20,500! Loaded, this
thing compares to a Pathfinder.


Best Features

*Price- $3500 below invoice w/ current incentives. *Performance- No it won't drive as plush as grandma's car. But, can grandma's car climb a mountain via a logging trail. Yes the 3.5 liter DI kicks butt. *Reliability- I wouldn't have bought another Isuzu if I wasn't impressed the first time.


Worst Features

*Lighted Door instrumentation- Power door controls are hard to see at night. *I wish they offered a jacked up model w/ little wheels and big tires... *Continue the good work Isuzu. I know this is the last year of the Rodeo. Can't wait til 2007 to see whats next.
