Great SUV wish they still made them in the USA, good thing it they don't break down as long as you take care of them. owned 5 of them over the years and still own 3 today. 1st Trooper 1989, 2nd 1998, 3rd 2001, 4th 2002 5th 2001. total estimated cost of repairs not including the normal tires and bakes and exhaust. 1989 Heater core = $300.00 2001, 2002 Two Transmission = $1800 each. 2002 Fuel tank = $400.00 2001 Exhaust system = $1200 Most impressive thing about them is they don't rust, I live in New England MA. where we salt the roads all winter. 2nd most impressive thing about them is the minimal damage in a accident, Ask the 2014 Jeep Cherokee that hit my 2001 Trooper in the quarter panel, Jeep was totaled its engine and front wheel pushed into the cab of the Jeep thank god the people lived. My Trooper had a flat tire and dent and drove it home after we put air in the tire. After seeing accident now two police offices that responded own Troopers.

Complete transmission failure at 36,000 mi. and engine failure at 50,000. Both were replaced under warranty. Lots of room and performs reasonably well in the snow.

Bought this used a year old 17,000 miles for 1/2 price of new. At 78,000 miles torque converter bearing failed costing me $900 at a trusted transmission shop, dealer wanted $4500 for a whole transmission. Other than that this car has had zero problems , absolutely no work other than one brake job, a few light bulbs and regular fluid changes..well over 100k now. It really is built like tank. I use it to haul family, lots of gear, and towing. 4WD low gear combined with high ground clearance is useful if you need it. Not for everyone but a good off road vehicle priced very low. Maybe I'm lucky, but have many friends with Ford/Chevy SUVs who had to replace everything but the engine by 100K

I've had some problems with the Transmission too and my mileage is low. The RPMs go crazy & I had problems braking. I drive a little, turn off car & restart sometimes fixes problem. My drivers seat does NOT go all the way back. I'm 5'4" & have short legs and seat is problem along with contour. I had a 88 Trooper & loved it. I like this too but I wish the seats were manual & the CD player was of better quality. Lots of room, I can put 2 bird cages, 3 cat carriers and 1-50 lbs dog & their food, in cargo area in case of hurricane evacuation. The "check engine" thingie is broken. I had it reset twice. 2 weeks later, when I gassed up, the light came back on.

I unfortunately, had to lease my 2001 Isuzu Trooper but I can say that as of today I've enjoyed having it. I have always wanted an SUV but didn't want to have one leased to me but all in all I am enjoying my truck, well it'll be my truck the end of next year, ha! I had a little transmission problems after I got that fixed I ran into a small minor problem, mechanical; but after all that my truck has been driving really good. I get a little concerned with how quiet it was opposed to now it's a little loud but not too loud. So I assume that's minor as well. I love the sunroof, it shows off the black exterior and the tan interior of the truck. I look sexy in my truck. But love my truck, love it.

Love my 2001 Trooper

This has been a fantastic car. I use the 4WD about 10 times a year still and have not gotten stuck...even through thick beach sand, north ga back trails and 3ft of water. Pretty cool. The car has been extremely reliable and has yet to leave me stranded. My wife loves the seat warmers. I had the brakes checked every tire rotation and finally had to change the front brake pads for the first time at 105,000 miles!!!! Only complaint would be the factoy stereo and gas mileage. 16-17mpgHWY

Quality and reliability all in one great package. This is the 3rd Isuzu Trooper I have owned. Put over 240,000 miles on each of the first two without any problems. This car is wonderfully well designed and thoughtfully engineered. Truly built with all necessary comfort features and designed for off road traveling as well. I know I won't have to worry about unexpected mechanical problems for a long, long time.

I like the size and roominess of the interior. Driversite lines are good and car is very comfortable to drive. Plenty of passenger room and cargo room. However, vehicle is heavy and a bit sluggish to operate. Low gas mileage tops out at about 15.5 mpg true driving conditions. Had to have transmission replaced at 72000 miles (covered 100% by warranty). Also have had several issues with 4wd system which were only partially covered by warranty. The mechanical problems and below average gas mileage prevent me from recommending car as an every day vehicle

I have always wanted an Isuzu Trooper for as long as I can remember. I have looked very hard and came across a 2001 S/4WD with an automatic transmission for only $5299. I called the dealer right away and drove down there to pick it up. It had everything I wanted and needed. I have driven it over a thousand miles since I bought it last week and it runs great. Smooth acceleration, stops, ride and turns. Not as top heavy as people say. The only thing I have done to it was put in a sound system as the stock one didn't have a cd player or subs. There is a slight problem with the transmission but will only cost between $400-$600 to fix. The front pump seal is bad. But can wait to fix it.

I bought a 2001 Isuzu Trooper Limited with 144k on it and it runs great. Its power heated mirrors come in real handy when its foggy or you want to get into tight spaces. The 4x4 is very reliable for off-roading. THE SUNROOF IS HUGE! It is very smooth and luxurious for long trips and the towing capacity is great too. Its acceleration is better then most vehicles and the winter and power drive modes are very useful. And I love the seats; they are so comfortable and good-looking. Another impressive thing about the Isuzu Trooper is its huge cargo space; it could and will swallow anything (except another TROOPER). I love this vehicle, it is the best. I test drove its successor the Isuzu Ascender and it stinks!

I have driven across the U.S. every year in Oct. and Nov, for the last 20 years, My Trooper is the best winter driver of all the autos, pickups & SUVs I have owned. Only have 55,000 miles on this Trooper, We have other vehicles we drive when at home. We have not spent any money (except for normal maintenance, oil, tires, etc.) on this auto. Can not think of any other auto, pickup, or SUV we have owned that has given us as much driving safety or pleasure as this Trooper.

I've been driving 26 years and this is by far the finest vehicle I have ever owned. The emphasis on quality overcost savings is readily apparent. It's been coast to coast twice and to Alaska once. Even at 97,000 miles ithasn't hiccuped even once. It drives and rides smoother than many cars I've owned. It hasn't developed any squeaks or rattles at all. The engine is smooth quiet and powerful, the transmission is equally impressive. The four wheel ventilated disc brakesare phenomenal.

This is a solid, good looking truck, feels very safe esp. in bad weather. Got a $32K truck for $21K. Lots of room, great sound system, great ride. Interior bits (carpet) could be better quality. Exterior paint chips kind of easily. The dealer service is really poor. Every single trip made to troubleshoot an issue required a second trip back since they didn't have a part.

The trooper has yet to let me down. To bad I can't say that about Isuzu Customer Service and Getting Warranty Work Done. The local dealership, I live in Northeastern Pa, cancelled my appointment for warranty work twice but failed to call me to let me know, I needed a tie rod end.If you call the number for customer support in your vehicle manual they can't and won't help, and there isn't a another dealership within an hours drive.

I first looked at the Trooper because of the unbelievable discount and 10 120M mile drivetrain warranty. I got a new Limited for about $25M. It is remarkable sturdy, well made vehicle. I've not had a single problem and plan to keep it until it (or I) reverts to iron ore.

I cannot believe they do not make this vehicle anymore. Although it couldn't compete with vehicles in its class due to not having the optional third seat or V-8 engine, it blows away all domestic vehicles in its class. If anything Isuzu should have rengineered the trooper and discontinued the rodeo. I purchased the Trooper for $100 over the cost of the redeo and it was the best decision I made with cars. Who can beat a full size SUV for $23k with a 7 year 100,000 mile warranty.

We love this Trooper. Sad they don't make them like this any more. We have the limited style that comes standard with a huge sun roof. Great for cargo, long trips, or just tooling around. The bad thing is the paint on the bottom molding scratches too easy, but that is our only complaint. It gets about 16mpg, but that's sort of standard for SUV's. Good vehicle and in two years and 46k miles, not one ping of trouble!

I wasn't goin out looking to buy a Trooper but after my test drive I was hooked. Simply put this is the most reliable vehicle I've owned, and I've owed alot of cars. VERY comfortable to drive especially on long trips and Troopers are a very nice looking vehicle. I'm at over 80,000 miles and I've NEVER had a problem. Until Isuzu does me wrong I'll always own one.

I have to admit I'm a Trooper fan. My 2001 is the 4th Trooper I've owned. I've this one driven it on the beach and to Mt. Evans (14,000'asl)in Colorado and it performed great at sea level and at altitude. I love the roomy interior. I can pack it full of camping gear, or full of groceries and still have room for the family.

After 25,000 miles this vehicle still drives as new. Very solid build quality - much better than seen on Explorers or Blazers. Gas mileage could be better but lets face it, it isn't the most aerodynamic shape... We are very happy with this vehicle and would have purchased another (in time) had they not discontinued them.

I purchased this vehicle approx. 14 mos ago based upon the outstanding rebate and need for new vehicle. I was not totally sold on it when I sought it, but I purchased the Limited model which had all of the options I was wanting. I'm liking it more and more and have been very satisfied with the overall performance. It doesn't get fantastic gas mileage but I have not had a single problem with it.

I received my 2001 black Trooper for my birthday in September. Going from a car to the Trooper was the best decision. It travels long distances well and puts my parents at ease when I make trips to and from college. For outdoor lovers, it accomodates for many activities. I can fit 3 or 4 surfboards easily in the back.

this is a very comfortable solid truck. the 4wd system is sophisticated, easy to use, and very effective. the interior is spacious, the ride surprisingly comfortable, and the quality of fit/finish is typically japanese. the engine is strong although a bit raspy during acceleration, and there is more wind noise than i would like. overall, a solid 8/10 vehicle, and for the price (i bought mine used with 14K miles for 17,250) the value is unbeatable. sure, a honda pilot would be nice, but for twice the money i don't think so!
