2003 Isuzu Rodeo S V6 4WD Review
Rides like a truck! Up high, rough and tough! Go anywhere you want to!
Throttle position sensor history--no biggie though.
Love It! — I love my Rodeo. It is paid off now for several years and the maintenance required has been minimal--oil/owners manual typical recommended maintenance and tires every once in a while. The four wheel drive is excellent in winter. Plus it is a truck on a real frame not some uni-body construction that all the magazines rave about in the suburban SUV's. Always reliable accept for the throttle position sensor which was just fixed by replacing the whole throttle body at the dealer. Dealer says he sells a lot of throttle bodies for these. Oh well I can spend a little to keep her going--no car payments now for several years. Never been off road so not sure how it goes there but I would not hesitate--it is a solid reliable truck!
Primary Use: Commuting to work

An Absolute Money Pit.
From the start I had problems with this SUV. Bought it in 08 and it had a very low mileage and now I think it's because it was always broken down. Common problem with the Rodeos is a constantly flas... Read More
Clean, Classic On-frame 4x4 Suv
This is not my first Rodeo. :) This is my third Rodeo. They are not 'made' but rather assembled by several well-known auto manufacturers. Some parts from China, some from Japan, and some from USA. Thi... Read More
A Solid Small Suv
Runs great, looks great despite years of use. Only complaints stem from factory design deficiencies in this model including slow oil loss and broken fuel gauge. Also goos off-raod despite being 2WD. W... Read More
Not recommended rear wheel drive. Get a 4WD if you choose to get this car. The weight distribution is uneven. Its front heavy and if you get a rear RWD then you end up spinning out on wet surfaces. Ot... Read More
