1991 Isuzu Trooper S 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

I purchased my 1991 Trooper in the summer of 2001 from an Isuzu dealer with 136,000 miles on the odometer. I performed several maintenance tasks, including replacement of front CV shafts, tie-rod ends, ball joints, shocks, and a tune-up. However, since that service interval, I have had no problems despite many, many harsh off-road excursions and an additional 88K miles (now ~ 227K mi). I have purchased another 1990 Trooper as a parts donor, and so I'll be Trooping for at least another 7 yrs. I like the spartan, utilitarian design; no nonsense, straight functional core. The tilt-up back seat is a BIG plus for hauling capacity. It is easy to work on.


Best Features

Stiff suspension, NO radio!


Worst Features

Removable back seat

Review

I purchased a '91 Trooper about 2 yrs ago b/c my spouse had a '90 model for about 5 years and we loved it. We put 280,000 miles on our 1st one and it was a great vehicle. A couple of my family members have them as well. Now we own the '91 model and it has been great. We purchased it @ 89,000 miles and now have over 123,000 and it runs like a top. We now are purchasing an '01 limited, but will keep our other. The trooper is one of the best SUVs out there - wish they would start making them again! Its a shame.


Best Features

Body style and how well you can see from different angles.


Worst Features

MAKE THEM AGAIN!

Review

I have done a pretty thorough tune up and finally am getting up to 25 mpg on the highway and 20 in town. My 89 LS actually rides much smoother, there is likely something going on with my suspension.


Best Features

Short wheel base, mileage, great views.


Worst Features

Add cup holders!

Review

I can not praise on this car enough. We bought it from the original owner with 220,000 miles for $1000. It was the best money spent in a long time. Now it's approaching 300k, we have spent about nothing on maintenance, but like others have said it is underpowered and the ac is not very great. We do have the automatic and it's starting to show signs of wear. I have beat the heck out of this thing off road and it has never let me down. Isuzu needs to step back up to the plate and build another excellent suv.


Best Features

4wd, bullet proof.


Worst Features

Better ac, more power, less body roll.

Review

The only problem I can find with this car is that the transmission had issues. Otherwise it's as basic as "Legos."


Best Features

Back seats fold down to give great amount of space and roof height allows for more vertical space.


Worst Features

Automatic transmission on V-6 is no good.
