2006 Isuzu Ascender 2WD 5-PassengerReview
Great Value Midsized Suv — I would recommend this SUV to anyone. Great mid-size SUV. Plenty of interior space. We haul camping gear and have room to spare. Good power from a V-6 engine and not too bad on gas either. It has a towing package for a small trailer or camper. I've owned it for 2 years and have had no problems. Regular oil changes, coolant and trans change...no other work done on it. It has a timing chain - not a wimpy belt that needs changing every 100k miles. My Isuzu has 86k miles and there is nothing wrong with it and it still looks great as well.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: Great value for a mid-sized SUV. Compare to Trailblazer.
Cons: Side covers on front seat bottoms fragile. Broke from getting in and out of vehicle.
