Isuzu Rodeo Ls Suv — It hasn't been too bad except for problems with the catalytic converter, four wheel drive system, and the six disc cd changer. Other than those problems the vehicle remains solid and is fun to drive. If it was running in top condition it would be awesome. The gas mileage sucks, the engine blows oil out the tailpipe, and ive seen cheech and chong movies with less smoke in them. LOL.

Best Isuzu Out Of The 2 We've Had — This is probably the best of the SUV's we own. Its performance is so so its not horrible but it could have some better horsepower but it does get up and go. Is black wit a brown interior, fully loaded like all the others and its got the dvd in the back and sittin on chrome 20's.

Rockin Rodeo — Bought my 2001 Rodeo in '06 with 70k on it. In mid-2013 it now has over 130k. It has been super reliable with only expected wear items needing replacement. I owned 2 Troopers prior to the Rodeo. Isuzu trucks are long-haulers.The Troopers have more usable space but the Rodeo handles turns a little better. It is the harshest riding vehicle I have ever owned. It is not a good vehicle for commuting in urban traffic. Great for ski, camping, ect. trips.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Looks Good, Fun To Drive — i bought this vehicle used and have owned it for a year now. i love the way it drives, but then again, i like trucks..it drives more like a truck than an suv/car. pulls the camper well, and 4x4 is very strong. small turning radius and good views make it super easy to park. large cargo space for trips is a bonus. it's a bit sluggish off the start and shifts a little 'clunky', but once in 4th,5th gear, itk's very powerful, and hwy driving is a breeze.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)
