Cons: "Gas mileage but for the size really no too bad."

"I have had 10 great years with this car. Its the 3rd Isuzu I have purchased. Reliability, dependability and great ride
has been its signature. Isuzu is the unsung hero of the auto world for taking better known vehicles and putting their name on it at prices us common folks can afford."
"7 yrs & only had to replace battery & tires, Oil changes & check every 3 months. This is the longest I have ever kept a vehicle & I used to buy a new car every 2 years whether I needed it or not! I wish they still made these, I would purchase another in a couple more years."
"Great sturdy car, looks good too! No mechanical issues at all for over 120k miles, love that! but Important: at 121,000 my gas gauge stopped working. I got a letter from Isuza stating there was a problem with gas gauges stopping, cost to fix $2,000 and Isuzu would pay IF (what they call a big if) you had 120,000 miles or less. Wow, how long did they hold on to that important letter? google this car with "cluster" problems. The issue is unless you spend $2000 to fix that gas gauge, you can't sell it for what its worth as the light stays on, the "empty tank" bells rings so you much keep the odometer set so you know how far you have driven on a tank of gas. Will have to sell for big discount. Otherwise its an awesome driving car, I will miss it when/if I can sell it."
"This is my third Isuzu and I am heartbroken that they no longer make this vehicle. I have owned the Ascender since 2005 when it was new and have never had a problem with the car. Gas mileage has been better than most of my friends smaller autos. The car is comfortable, stable, beautiful and since it will probably live for another ten years, it is going to my daughter. Great car!"
Cons: "Too many mechanical issues even tho I baby my ride"

"Purchased new and only have 54k total miles. I baby my vehicles and take excellent care of vehicles. Garage kept.
So far, have not good things to say. Paint cracked..wax car three times a year by hand. Transmission leaks...had to fix that. Computer module has issue that dealer can't find. Gauges work off an on, tach does not work at all, headlights turn off while driving, seats work one day and not the next, sun/moon roof plastic pieces broke cannot get replacement part so you have to buy a new twelve hundred dollar unit so cannot use that, leather came apart at seams and various other minor issues.
Very disappointed in my choice and most likely not buy another Isuzu."
