"Have the 5 cylinder engine, 150,000 miles and still running great. Everything still works. Only complaints are the small stuff: tailgate handle broke (use it every day), tire size is odd so hard to find good match (Firestone Destination LE2 have been the best), CD player (radio) gave out and had to replace it if I still wanted to play CD's. Still doesn't use oil, power steering pump just now showing signs of leaking a bit. Put 500lb booster/helper springs on rear end which helped a great deal for hauling anything of real weight. Although the interior is pretty basic with hard plastics, it has held up and worn well and cleans up great. I like the smaller size as it makes it easier to manage in town, parking, garage, etc. Been a great daily driver."
Cons: "Electrical issues, quality of parts knobs, seats.."
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 2
"I have never broke down in this truck. I was disapointed when I found out the Chevy Colorado (the almost exact truck) was cheaper. My seat has torn at the stitching, the heat control knob broke (I replaced it $150 junk yard), heater has had electrical issues, and the chrome is separating from the grill. Like I said, I haven't been stranded but there are several small issues that have costed a great deal of money to fix and shouldn't have went wrong in the first place. Overall I rate this truck a 2 out of 5."
"Vehicle drives quite well . Fuel economy : Town is 23.5 mpg . Highway is 28.2 mpg . I love the generous 7 year 70,000 mile warranty this vehicle has though I have never needed to use it . Rear folding seats are not very comfortable to set in on extended trips . For a 4 cylinder this truck has plenty of power for hauling and towing my small trailer . I would love to purchase another new truck like this but unfortunately Isuzu has discontinued making this truck in the USA ."
"Basically a Chevy Colorado with a longer warranty and lower price tag.
Inline 4 has plenty of power, have no problems on freeway.
Problem free! No issues & I have 45K miles now.
Gets good gas mileage for a pickup.
Comfortable seating, great AC, nice MP3 audio.
Rear doors are a GREAT addition.
Storage under jump seats also helpful.
Economy vehicle: some rattles and squeaks.
No tilt seating, even on drivers' side.
Suspension a little tight.
Jump seats are small, seating tight, and a car seat BARELY fits.
No center console/arm rest (and it's difficult to find one that fits.
If you can only afford a car, but want a 2WD truck for $15K, this is the one to get."
