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


Bought TWO of these dogs on the same
day (what was I thinking) for wife and
daughter, hoping to get them into
something reliable and safe - just the
opposite. After 20K miles, major items
began to fail such as catalytic
converter (complete failure),
transmission oil leakage (required
complete transmission replacement),
engine starter failure (replaced / both
cars), ABS brake failures, throttle
control valves, EGR valves, gas gauges,
central computer, radio (lights,
speakers), along with multiple factory
recall repairs, some of which required
more than a day to complete (without a
supplied rental). There is NO feeling
of dependability.

Best Features

The day I get rid of them (couldn't sell, always "upside down", even after paying $10K down payment).

Worst Features

Quit trying to make an SUV out of inferior subcontracted parts / components on a truck chassis. Center of gravity is too high, almost causing rollover after a blowout (rear) on inferior grade factory tires (Goodyear Wrangler).
