"had the car since my freshmen year of high school.i graduated 2010. i have had no problems and i still love it! just got married and we want a ''family car'' this car would work but i dont want to have to lift the carseat through the front doors to the back seat."
Cons: "Transmission, back does not lay flat, road noise,"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"It needs a new transmission and probably a complete hose and lines replaced but this is my pony. One day I will be able to fix it up, a project of sorts.
I had this since 2001 and it was my car, my truck and I even my home. I lived in it for a while when fleeing a domestic violence situation. But it ran good, I kept it maintained..road noise was bad. Great visibility, loved the high ruck frame.
My girlfriend and I bought at the same time, she got a Isuzu 2002 and it was a cream puff. Mine was the sport, the bomb, the devil, it nickle and dime me on gas...(TERRIBLE on fuel) but like a rotten but cute boyfriend, i kept hanging in. No regrets, except the boyfriend, i should have traded him in long ago. oh well...that pothole in my life is now filled.
Come to think about it maybe my mechanic was not that great, although he gave me great discounts for work, it always has something going on and it was usually repaired while we went out to lunch or dinner...hummmm. Drats, i think i got snookered.
It was a GREAT vehicle. It lasted me 10 year."
"It is a fun vehicle to drive ,does pretty well in snow. Hard to get into the back seat. Seats fold down for good hauling for a small vehicle. I would recommend for a young single person who likes a sporty vehicle."
"I PURCHACED 2002 RODEO SPT.NEW AND HAVE JUST SOLD IT TO A FRIEND. IT HAS BEEN A ROUGED AND DEDPENDABLE RIDE, I HAD NO RESERVES ABOUT SELLING IT TO SOMEONE I KNOW. I LOGGED ABOUT 135000 MILE WITH NO LARGE REPAIRS PRETTY MUCH ROUTINE MAINT."
