1999 Isuzu Amigo Review
ALL AROUND GREAT GET TO WERE YOU NEED TO BE. The seating although tight for all passengers close to or above 6 is more than adequate for my family of four, the infant carrier a snug fit past the passenger seat( inconvenient but manageable). 15mpg average for a v6 was great for a quick commute. five star power and handling with car tires, hugged corners better than any sports car Ive controlled(240sx, integra fire-bird....) none would hold a corner as well as this. Features push and go 4x4 you couldnt get it stuck with out putting on a pole or barring it past bumpers. ONLY CON- i found the short wheel base to be unpredictable/uncontrollable in drifting stuations, often resulting in a 180 manuver.
Handling Ranked 1994 Buick Skylark worse.
"shorter wheelbase and rear wheel drive with 4 wheel quick option"
Cargo Capacity Ranked 1994 Buick Skylark worse.
"fold flat rear seat"
Family Car Ranked 1994 Buick Skylark better.
"easy fold up front seats+decent head room =convenient carrier in and out. More to be decided"
Would Buy Ranked 1994 Buick Skylark worse.
"modifications and personalization- with the amigo you can drop it low and make it go or jack it up and never get stuck"

Most Fun I've Ever Had On 4 Wheels. — The convertible top allows this little SUV to carry a much larger cargo that intended. With the addition of a tow-hitch and a carry-bar, I can transport canoes and kayaks up top. Has always handled 4-wheel drive operations flawlessly.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Just a fun car to drive.  4-wheel drive when you need it, great acceleration, and small enough to get into places where other SUVs have to pass on by.

Cons: The frame is rusting.  Isuzu issued a recall on the stabilizer brackets - only.  But, the fact is; the entire frame is vulnerable.  I have welded several holes already and I chase the rust with Eastwood products.  But, I fear this is a losing battle.  I try to keep my cars for two decades.  As an original owner, I am disappointed with this car company.  Isuzu messed up, and needs to step up and perform frame replacements, or buy-backs for original owners of this vehicle.

Love It. By Alexander

Car handles well for its type. 21.9 gal tank makes it rear heavy and feel like a v6 in this model would better balance torque vs. weight issue. Best design for amigos ended in 94 with latter ones havi... Read More

Car Got Me From A To B By Kyle

The A/C was the best thing I liked about this car, especially living in AZ. This SUV ran strong with no major problems, the back seat had more leg room than one would think just by looking at it. Read More
