"The most trouble free car I have ever owned. Just routine maintenance for 12 years. The only part replaced is the
battery. Brake pads still at 70%, alignment is perfect,
the exterior & interior is still like new. Quality
throughout, only negative is the stiff ride."
Cons: "Thirsty by comparison to newer rigs like it"

"Never had any problems with this vehicle and it is more capable off road than one would expect. I have personally driven over 100,000 miles in it and it has been flawless. Wish Isuzu was still making SUVs. But, I'm not letting go of this one for some time to come."
Pros: "rust free. runs well. dependable. Easy to maintain"

"I bought this Trooper new in 1996, have had no major problems with it. rust free, engine runs well, still looks very good. Not a fancy SUV, but As a comparison my 2001 Ford F150 King Ranch (bought new) has rusted Through the rocker panels large enough to put your hand through!"
"I have owned since new. 83,000 original miles. Replaced tires once, belt twice and air filters every 12K. Regular oil changes and that is it.
Rides great, sits up high enough, great visibility.
Little rough on MPG but did not expect higher mpg.
Oil consumption quart every 1200 miles.
Brakes still original and plenty left.
The leather interior still in great shape, dash looks new, paint excellent."

They made 4 wheel drive Troopers. 14 years later looks great runs great we tow off-road toys with it all the time. Our son dose swimming pools out of it for the time being then back out to the desert for out tow vehicle . Love it ."
