"It is a shame that the Rodeo really has no trade in value for such a reliable SUV. It has been a real pleasure owining a Rodeo. No major problems. Changed EGR valve and that's about it. Has 160,000 miles and would probably go 160,000 more. Selling the car due to new purchase. Would have purchased another Rodeo if Isuzu still made them."

"This 1999 Isuzu is in good body condition. However I have had a used engine put it in 2012. Now I am told my engine have locked up. I have the papers on where i had my vehicle served, and how I kept it up conditonly. I was told serveral years ago that once you start having problems with it they never stop. All I want is a good fair deal for the truck. Thanks,"

"Am orig owner,vehicle has been 'painless' with only scheduled maintenance/replacements (tires, battery, etc). I feel very safe behind the wheel-car is sturdy, very reliable and has plowed thru 2-3 feet of snow many times and is a pleasure to drive- no regrets ever about this purchase back in 2003. I'm very torn between selling and not selling-it's been THAT good."

"I bought this car used 6 years ago and it is still going strong with almost 300,000 on it. This vehicle actually has more get up and go than my 2006 Dodge Charger. Love this car. I wish Isuzu were still making them so I could get another one."

"Bought my 2004 when it was 3 years old; have had it for over 7 years now. Just hit 161K miles. I drive it everyday on my 66-mile commute. Gas mileage could be better, but still not bad. Love this vehicle. Great during the last brutal NW Ohio winter. Still looks good after all these years. Super reliable SUV."
