1999 Isuzu Rodeo LS V6 4WD
A transmission leak occurred at 94000 miles. The dealer charged $150 to repair it.
The same fuel gauge (actually the fuel sender unit) problem experienced by everyone else started at 100000 miles. I had it fixed at 118000 miles for $300 at the dealer.
The ABS sensors stopped working properly at 118000. The cost to replace was $250.
The rear window wiper stopped working. The module which controls it had to be replaced at 118000. The dealer charged $400 for this.
I purchased this vehicle new and have only had it serviced (not including oil changes) by the dealership. I would only take the vehicle to a dealership with a "Master Isuzu" mechanic. A master Isuzu mechanic has special training and years of experience.
I have 118000 miles on the vehicle (same engine, same transmission) and it has been extremely reliable and maintenance has been on the very low side. The true 4WD system is great for snow and off-roading.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
