Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1

"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."

Pros: "Value, cargo space, 4-wheel drive performance"

Cons: "Interior seats just a little plain - lacks comfort"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I bought this car used - and I have had no problems other than minor brake work from 50K miles to 90K miles. The interior is spacious but on a smaller platform. The seats lack the ultra comfort of some of the higher prices SUVs, but are adequate for longer trips. Given that the car is 10 years old, it still looks relevant among new SUV's and doesn't look like a dinosaur. Lots of cargo space in the back and the use of lots of plastic makes it pretty much stain proof, scratch proof, etc. I get almost as much use out of the cargo as I do in my truck. And I haul two dogs around in the back conveniently. While I don't go "4-wheeling" in the car, in the rare event of snow here, the thing is unstoppable. It outperforms every 4wd on the road. It has a locking rear differential on the fly and I literally can go anywhere in slippery conditions. I have been on the road when the cops won't come out. Final take: what this car lacks in a polished interior it more than makes up for in reliability, cargo, 4-wheel drive capabilities, and value. Very few deals like this in the car market in general and when compared to say a toyota 4 runner selling used for nearly 3-times the price, its a no brainer."
