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?

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.

Good Car but a Gas Hog

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.
