Old Version - New one to come soon

"Taking into consideration that owners either really love this Isuzu Rodeo SUV or they really hate it, I'm on the good side of that coin. I have made some changes to affect the performance slightly, but nothing other then performance chips and no engine work per say. This SUV with it's V-6 motor, starts to truly perform when you have it up at the 60 MPH range and above. It easily flies past most all other cars on the road of it's type and most cars overall at those higher speeds. I am very surprised on the smooth level of control and the slick dynamics it creates while driving. For an older ride, I couldn't ask for anything more from it. I have custom graphics on the exterior side panels, custom stripes & pin stripes, slightly wider and taller tires, black painted rims with a red pin stripe, a 1000 & a 1200 watt double amp kit with a capacitor, a DVD/CD double din stereo system in dash with a rear view camera and 10 good quality speakers with an added big sub woofer too. I have racing style seat covers and matching floor mats, custom interior LED lighting, in dash LED lighting, a brush guard and full length side bumper bars both 3" round black steel tubing, G P S guidance and limo black tinted windows with window guard deflectors on all windows. For a 2000 ride, it's a heck of a good looking 15(going on 16), year old SUV. I love it and know with my good up keep it's going to last me for many years."

"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,"
