Built like a tank
By SteveK on


2001 Isuzu Trooper S 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Bought this used a year old 17,000 miles for 1/2 price of new. At 78,000 miles torque converter bearing failed costing me $900 at a trusted transmission shop, dealer wanted $4500 for a whole transmission. Other than that this car has had zero problems , absolutely no work other than one brake job, a few light bulbs and regular fluid changes..well over 100k now. It really is built like tank. I use it to haul family, lots of gear, and towing. 4WD low gear combined with high ground clearance is useful if you need it. Not for everyone but a good off road vehicle priced very low. Maybe I'm lucky, but have many friends with Ford/Chevy SUVs who had to replace everything but the engine by 100K

Best Features

Reliability, cargo capacity, gearing, ground clearance, well accessorized for the price

Worst Features

gas mileage (ouch), that lousy converter bearing
