Great Vehicle

by long time ford owner,newly converted from texas on July 5, 2007

One of the most reliable cars i've ever owned. plenty of power never had any mechanical issues. The only drawback ive found is that it will slide when taking of on a wet road.but never to the point of loss of control.great car

Fun and reliable

by Slager from Londonderry, NH on July 30, 2010

I love this vehicle too much! It is so fun to drive because it handles so well and has unbeatable pickup when you need it. I bought mine new in 1999 and am still running it with 200,000 miles on it in 2010. I just can't let it go - its worth million$ to me, but only $3 grand if I sell it. The cargo space is HUGE, especially if you're comparing it to a Jeep Wrangler (which has basically none). Every weekend, I put in 3 large hockey bags, hockey sticks, my 2 kids, and my wife, with room to spare (try THAT in any other 2 door truck!). Why, oh why, did Isuzu discontinue the Amigo?

Good Car but a Gas Hog

by College Student from Morgantown, WV on May 12, 2008

As a high school student, I was barely able to afford gas for this car. And this is when gas was at $2.30. I had to fill up all the time. That is really the only problem I have with the Amigo. Also, I have had to take it for a couple repairs in the past 6 months. And its only at 30,000 miles. So be prepared to have to have some repairs.

very reliable gas guzzler

by amigo owner from on March 19, 2010

I owned this car for almost 4 years now and it has been very reliable. In the summer, taking the top down and the sunroof off is always fun and the 4 wheel drive has never failed me in the winter. Though, the gas mileage really makes you dig deep in the pockets. At 80000 miles the transmission/clutch had to be replaced then at 85000 the starter had to be replaced. Overall, i would keep it as a fun car, not a daily car.
