Run from this car!!!!

by 95 owner from Surprise, Az | February 26, 2013

These cars are not the most reliably built vehicles!!! They are only adequate for light duty use without having maintenance issues!!! Isuzu also made the Honda Passport which Honda mechanics dislike with a passion and is an embarrassment to Honda!!! All the power options should be looked at with suspicion....power window cables snap, door handle linkage breaks, motors develop VERY hidden leaks.....you get the idea!!!!! Run from these vehicles!!!!

Great car from production date, to now!

by Speed Freak :: Simon from Saint Louis, MO | November 15, 2009

My '97 Rodeo is a dream! It rides smooth and sturdy, can carry quiet a load, great for extreme weather, and you don't feel bad taking it a bit off road! The entire vehicle is built on a strong rugged from covered in strong sheet of metal, and aside from small issues with the interior door-activated lights, there has been no problem! Has a lot of torque, even now, and though it's a bit more front heavy that's nothing that 3 or 4 sandbags in the trunk won't solve. Great vehicle for some slow drifting, and very reliable. Had it in the family since 1998 and have loved all 11 years! My dad used it to get to work for 10 years, and it has been mine now for a year. I do some light off-roading and rock climbing with it, great suv for carrying 2 bikes, fun to drive in whatever weather, and I still get a decent 16+ mpg on it! And I'm still able to smoke any tweaked Acura in a straight-away!!! Love my Rodeo! Simon
