Love the Rodeo..... Almost
By Ryan on


2004 Isuzu Rodeo S Rwd 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 5M)


I love almost everything about the 2004 Direct Injection Rodeo, except for the fuel injection problem that I have had in BOTH 2004 Rodeos I have had. It sometimes wants to hesitate during my first acceleration of the day, but then performs fine. I can't seem to find anyone else that has had this problem, but I have experienced it in both Rodeo's that I have had.

Best Features

I love the power of the engine. You can't find that performance in any other SUV in its class. It will leave the others in the dust. The 6-disc changer and steering wheel controls are a great feature as well.

Worst Features

Fix the fuel injection problem! I thought after my first Rodeo went back to Isuzu, I would no longer have the problem. Guess again, it has shown its face with this Rodeo as well. Don't bother making Isuzu aware of the problem, they just make you think you are imagining it!

we have had this problem in the past, and found out that you must used 5w30 mototr oil only. this has resolved the issue.
