I own this car - My approximate mileage is 145,000
Pros: "Not a lot of frills, so not a lot of maintenance"
Cons: "Electrical system can be difficult blowing fuses"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"Bought this 95 Pic-up in 2005 with 97000 miles on it for about $2,250. The first time I drove it, I realized it was special. At 101000 miles, I put new clutch, p/plate, throw-out-bearing and fly wheel on it. It cost about $1000. At 105000 miles, I put new tires on and had the braking system over hauled about $500. At 111000, replaced the fuel pump located in the gas tank $120 (did it with some buddies). At 125000 miles changed/replaced the electrical relay for the AC blower $50 (was a do it yourself) but figuring it out when ASE shops could not took forever. My truck is ugly and the wife hates it parked in the drive-way but Little Hurcules has now in 2012, 145000 miles and just wont die. He gets no real TLC, I drive it hard and too fast, put loads so heavy in the back that the front tires barely touch the pavement. The paint is pealing and the driver door won't lock, well sometimes it won't shut, but the seatbelt works great! It leaks a little oil, but burns none and sips gas like a hot cup of coffee. My wife tried to buy me a new truck and I had her return it. I am asking all my friends(that are single)to take him, cause I can't bear the thought of him in the JunkYard, plus I can still use him when I have some heavy wk to do. In closing, if the wife leaves me, Hurcules can always come back. Pray for me."

Pros: "great ride"
Cons: "no cup holders"
"My father gave me this truck when i was junior in high school and i loved driving it around town with the good gas mileage it has. I take it camping every chance i get and tailgate at baseball and football games in Miami. I have never had any major issues with the engine or any other systems and never been broken down on the side of the road. I have had offers to buy my truck in the past few years that are more than the Kelly Blue book value. It seems that people are looking for small work trucks with today's economy. If you are looking for a first car for your child, this truck is great with only two seats you don't have to worry about being responsible for a car accident with multiple children and with the small 4 cylinder engine there isnt enough power to race so your child wont be driving fast to get into a speed related accident.
My only concern is that my truck has not cup holders but i guess driving and driving can be dangerous."

"Isuzu never had the notariety that Toyota received for their trucks, but I consider Isuzu to be an "unsung hero" for building durable, cost-effective, high-quality, low-frills vehicles that deliver excellent longevity and service. I'm the 2nd owner of a '91 4x4 regular cab w/208,000 miles and I swear it would climb a tree if I asked it to. I've had 3 Isuzus, 2 Toyotas and 5 Hondas and I'd rank my Isuzu ownership experience as well or better than my experiences with other makes. Wish they still made them (and not those "re-badged S-10's", but a REAL Isuzu truck)."
