1997 Isuzu Trooper LS 3.2 V6
Nothing has gone wrong with the car.
The only problem I think it recently has is starting problem.
The dealer said it is the starter motor.
Otherwise an excellent car both to own and to drive.
The V6 engine purrs very nicely, quicker than most 4x4's.
Except the engine was rather noisy, and the sound proof is not a top job.
Brakes is excellent, much better than my Range Rover.
When hit corner quickly, it will result in "squills".
It seats 5 in comfort, but the last row (the sixth and seventh passengers' seats) is very tight.
Boot is big and spacious for bicycles.
Have own the car since new, and still likes it.
It is extremely reliable, had no problem with it, never needed to be tow away.
Fuel consumption can be a problem (reflected by the second hand price, I bought mine for $330000 plus about $60000 extras). I sold it for $50000 last month. Ouch.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
