Isuzu Rodeo - This car has been very reliable. We bought it off of a guy. The price was amazing. It's a good sized vehicle and fits my family of 5 comfortably. We love it and it has lasted a long time! The only issue I have had is with the suspension was in a car accident so now we are currently rebuilding the suspension. Also, the heater keeps going out.
I loved my Isuzu Rodeo. It was a bright green with glitter in it. The previous owner had it custom painted. It was also a stick shift and was 5 speed. I always have preferred stick shift to automatic. There was room for me, the 4 kids and then some. But it didn't have any extras other than your usual heater and air conditioner. It was also an old truck and needed a lot of upgrades. It was getting rather worn and would have looked great had I been able to re upholster the interior. I also had a nice stereo system installed, because I love to listen to music.

Isuzu Trooper is reliable, long lasting, spacious, safe, comfortable, practical and good for road trips or helping someone move. A very useful car all around. My husband's family has owned a number of Troopers and they seem to last a long time. But I dislike how much gas it takes. It's expensive to keep up with and not great for the environment. I also don't always need as much room as it provides.
I have an Isuzu Trooper 4x4 (2003). In recent days, the its engine stops when driving by itself, and it takes time to work again. I'm living in Turkey, and the service couldn't fix the problem, and we have no idea the reason the engine stops when working. What could be the problem? Is there any idea? Thanks.
I bought 2000 Rodeo in Dec 2015 not knowing the frame problem the vehicle had. I have put more money in it after I bought. Had about 55000 dollars in it. In Dec 2016 driving on highway the starting pulling viciously. In the end I managed to get it under control. It was a fight on steering wheel. The lower link bracket trust off the frame. I put another 480 dollars in getting welded back together. Why was I not I formed about frame when I bought the Rodeo. They can tell they did not know had bad the frame was. The Rodeo at this point should have not been sold without fixing the frame. I found out the Rodeo had recall about the frame problem. This never get fix on my Rodeo. The other side is getting bad. What I need is these reinforcement brackets so I get the other side fix!! Isuzu company should send me some because they fixed the problem the first time!!

I'm up to date with all the services. Last week March 15, 2017 I was driving my truck (Isuzu NQR 2010 diesel) and show the check engine light. I called the dealer and took the truck right away. This problem happened 4x since I bought the truck. It's 76,000 mileage. Bought new on October 2010 and I'm the only one driving and very careful. I already spend a lot of money on this truck ever since I bought it including the aircon fan that cost $1500 at 2 years old. 5 months ago I had an oil change, they found a lot to repair again and paid $1,600. Now the repair that needs to be done cost $10,285.00 and the next scheduled oil change is not due yet. Why are these ISUZU trucks doesn't last anymore. It is not worth the cost if the damages cause these much. Stop buying Isuzu trucks especially diesel. How can the Isuzu manufacturer company be address with this problem. This is too much to spend for the repair.
I purchased my Isuzu D-Max LCV 30/10/2015. When I am purchased the vehicle the sales executive said I can get the mileage of 15 km/litre without ac, with load I can get 12 km/litre. But I am getting 8 to 10 mileage per litre. And they told you can carry 4 ton load but I am carrying only 2 ton. Within 17500 km my clutch plate and flywheel and freewheel and bearing got damaged. Even Tata Ace is carrying 2 ton and got no problem and Ashok Leyland carrying 3 ton and Bolero carrying 3 ton after 30000 km or 40000 km only we are changing clutch plate but the Isuzu is worst than any vehicle. Please people don't buy the Isuzu vehicle. The Tata Ace Mega is carrying 3.5 ton load and not got any problem. I prefer to buy Ashok Leyland or Bolero or Tata Ace.
I purchased my Trooper with 64,000 mile on it. It has always guzzles oil. I have had the EGR valve cleaned out several times and replaced once. The starter is replaced and many other parts. I have had the transmission replaced in the last three years twice! On about 8,000 miles total Ye Ah! Now they say I need another one!!! After it supposedly went out four months after being replaced at Las Vegas Transmission. They say it is the power drive that coursed the transmission so now it is even more money out the door. Both need to be done even though I had a warranty on the transmission the second time!!! Don't go to Las Vegas transmission, they don't honor their warranties or their other shops by different names. Isuzu is such a bad brand, the mechanics can't figure out how to fix them.
I just bought a 1994 Isuzu Rodeo and in 3 days of driving it my fuel pump hanger went bad. I've tried to find a reasonable one and there's new ones for 524 dollars but I'm on a limited income. Does anyone have any ideas email me at ** or call me at ** please. TY.
In reply to every negative review of Isuzu Vehicles. Take note of the dates posted against the years of the owners vehicles. All Isuzus in NA are now between 15-25 years old. That is old for a car. Because Isuzus were so competitively priced, they were often bought for high usage and daily driving. You will be hard pressed to find any Isuzu with less than 150,000 miles on it. In fact, most will have over 200,000 if it's 1995 or older. For anyone who knows anything about cars, that is a long time for any car to be functioning. You see so many 80's and 90's Isuzus on the road today as a testament that they are GREAT and RELIABLE cars. Now, to address the complaints on this website. ANY car that's old NEEDS maintenance or it WILL fail! The complaints about failing brakes on the 2001 Troopers are results of negligence to the vehicle's braking systems.
To anyone who today claims that a 1994 Isuzu is the worst car ever made, is calling a 20-year-old car poor quality. If it was poor quality it would not be on the road today. It would have given up years earlier. That's why you don't see many older cars of other brands. They just don't last like Isuzu. As to the complaints on rust. Look at any Japanese import from the 80's and early to mid 90's, they all have rust. Isuzu, Toyota, Honda, Subaru, all of them. It will vary depending on where you're living, but yes, after 20-30 years, things rust. Sometimes also due to owners negligence in keeping the frame clean after trail riding.
Cars need maintenance. I have owned many Isuzus, and it's nearly the only car I will buy. I have a 1984 Isuzu Pickup. It has 300,000 miles and it's NEVER needed an engine rebuild. I challenge you to find me an American made car that can claim that. I do keep very good maintenance, but regardless, it is so durable. They last forever. That's all I have to say about that.
