"Love my Isuzu, overall. Having said that, here are the... NEGATIVES: 1. The biggest bummer is that they got acquired by GM and have been in decline ever since. Hard to find dealerships, but a competent local mechanic can do the job. Not sure about the long-term availability of parts, though. 2. Gas mileage is mediocre, especially in the city, I guess it's a real truck so we are talking seriously solid and heavier chasis. 3. The shelf in the back is impossible to disassemble and folding the back seat is not easy either, so it's not as practical/versatile as it could be. I guess it really isn't a Toyota or Honda. 4. Minor electrical annoyances, such as jammed 6 CD changer, had to change a fuse on the interior fan, easy and cheap but still a little annoying. POSITIVES 1. I get a sense that this thing will run forever. Real solid, feel like I can just get in my Isuzu and drive to Alaska without any special preparations. 2. It may not get great mileage but this V6 can MOVE when merging on to a lane or in city traffic. Easy to forget that this is still a SUV and breaking distances are longer than in real sports cars, so it is important not to overdo it with aggressive driving. 3. GREAT off road, in contrast to so many so-called SUVs out there. Also, I live in an area where it often floods. With this vehicle, as long as others are moving you are sure to be able to move too, it is quite high and probably the last one to stall in high waters. 4. It is such a cool vehicle, almost to the poing of becoming a cult. These little SUVs will likely become classic favorites one day."

"This is a great vehicle with awesome leg room for passengers. Fold-up back seat doubles the cargo room, which makes it great for pets and cargo. The top is a little funky to take on and off but it is fun once removed. I have had two Amigos and never had a problem."

"When I bought mine it had 29,000 miles, now it has 98,000! It still runs great. The hard top w/ 2 moon roofs is much more secure then the soft top. I get 18-24 MPG. from the V6 4WD. It only requires regular maintenance. I think it still has the factory battery. The only problem is the abs module went bad while under warranty, and had it replaced. then there was a factory recall on the module and it was replaced again @ no cost. I would buy this again! Hopefully the rodeo "sport" is as reliable as the amigo."
