"I purchased my 1999 Amigo from a private party when it was 14 years old and had 102k miles. It is the V6 4x4 with a removable hardtop. I couldn't be happier with this vehicle. It is super dependable and has very good 4 wheel drive that handles beautifully on snow and ice. After sitting for a week in subzero temperatures, it started on the first crank. It has the automatic trans and when it began to develop a clunk between 2nd and 3rd gears, I replaced the transmission selector switch (165.00) and it shifts like a dream. Not the most economical vehicle around, but the V6 is very peppy and gets the car up to highway speeds in just a few seconds. The ride is a little bit "trucky" but very tolerable on the highway. Bottom line is that this vehicle does a great job of getting me around regardless of weather. It is well built and has a unique style that always draws comments. I recommend it highly and predict it will be a modern day collectible."

"I bought this thing used in 2002 while I was in high school basically because it was cute and had a soft top and was 4 wheel drive. It was the best purchase I have ever made. Here we are 11 years later and the only mechanical problems have been a couple of belt replacements. I have just kept up on oil changes, brakes, and tires. There has never been a major issue come up. I know that when I go to the garage in the morning good Ol Penelope will start. She is so good in snow and ice I move the kids' car seats over to her when we have bad weather and make my husband drive the "nice" SUV that day. I have never been stuck!! I do think we are probably due for a new clutch...but the Amigo is 15 years old and has been driven every day. The only real negatives are the gas mileage in town, and the fact that the air conditioner can't really keep up in 100+ degree summers in Kansas. Which, I'm guessing is because of the soft top. Overall I would recommended this car to every one!! It is a beast!!"

"Bought my Amigo with 59000 miles. It's a 3.2 6 cyl, 2wd, automatic. The AC was bad when I got it and have not fixed it due to "black death" but otherwise it's been great. Put a new top on it at 150000 miles and have gone through 2 sets of tires. Mileage has been been the one thing that is disappointing as it gets 16-17 mpg all the time. Plenty of power though. has started to use a little oil as it nears 200k. This is the second Isuzu I've owned and while they are not fancy, they get the job done."

Sweet car, comfortable ride, great on gas.
