Most Reliable Vehicle I ever had

by Nick from Garnet Valley, PA on Sun Jul 19 2009

I bought the Trooper in 1998 and we had it until recently (1009) when we had a minor accident, but it was totaled becasue of cost of repair. It was the most economic SUV to get serviced, very raely needed anything but the regular services and in short is just an amazingly reliable vehicle. We were extremely upset when we had to let it go.

The best car i have ever own

by Tammey from Atlanta, Ga on Thu Jun 04 2009

I bought this car with 45K miles on it and drove it fine with out any major problems until it had 250K miles on it. The rear end was damage in a car accident and that's the only reason I am not still driving it to this day. the only problem with this car is there is no filter for the egr vale so you will have to change it out like every 2 or 3 years. it only take a sec to do and is not very expensive repair (about $150). Other than that this suv will last you forever!

My First Car

by First Car from Carbondale,IL on Wed Oct 18 2017

You remember when you got your first car? How did it feel? Well for me it was exciting, not only was it my first car, but it was a truck it was mine. It was a truck that was able to get me and to where ever I was at, it was reliable and cheap. Although, it wasn’t the best looking car, it was mine and it made feel good.

Our Take on the 1998 Isuzu Trooper

The first time you wheel a 1998 Trooper off the road, you'll know that what you've got isn't just another of those sport-utilities with a tough look that can't do much in the dirt.

The Trooper has been sort of like the Japanese Land Rover - boxy, beefy and capable of slogging through all sorts of nasty terrain. Isuzu has made some effort to soften the Trooper's utilitarian looks and improve it mechanically. There's a classy looking, chrome-trimmed grille out front and a quiet, ultra-smooth, high-tech engine under the hood.

But aim the Trooper's nose where the pavement ends and you'll find that it's very capable of serving as pack mule for camping trips deep into the woods, as well as for... Read More
