2002 Isuzu Trooper LS 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


It is hard to describe the ownership experience for me with this vehicle. I guess it can almost be described as happiness and sorrow combined. The vehicle itself is a high quality vehicle( which I will miss when gone) which rides on shocks and rear springs (nice). Plenty of power, big, unique, cool, and comfortable. Problem was with Isuzu disappearing in North America. Was assured by dealer they could continue to service when they dropped Isuzu franchise. My transmission was serviced and failed. Had to wait 18 days to get fixed at authorized Isuzu dealer. Second one failed again. Replaced again at no cost. Still love the vehicle, but Isuzu disappearing and other issues caused anguish.

Best Features

10/120000 mile powertrain warranty, 3.5L DOC V6, Power Sunroof, Heated Seats, Posi-Traction Rear, Fog Lights, TOD 4 Wheel Drive able to run even on dry pavement, Part-Time true 4 wheel drive low range, leather wrapped steering wheel, 110K miles so still under powertrain warranty, ride height SUV fun.

Worst Features

In dash Isuzu 6 dash CD player failed,have now only radio and tape player. Better road handling(driving too fast around bends causes too much body roll, needed stainless steel exhaust and undercoating of some components, now rusting appearing. Mirror controls located under cupholders=spill damage.
