1991 Isuzu Trooper 2.8L V6


A great overall rig


The clutch went out at 132000.

Rotor & Cap went at 136000, I don't know how long it had been since they were replaced before.

The bumpers were rusty, but I sanded them down and painted them.

Bumpers dent easily.

Speedometer cable wore through at 136000.

Leaks A lot of oil.

Carpet is thin, and cheap.

Windows rattle.

No dash kit for CD player.

The 4Low makes a "clunk" ing sound crawling up hills, that shakes the whole rig.

General Comments:

Even though all the little things wrong with it, the Trooper is very reliable, and rides nice. I get about 15 in the city, and 18 on the highway. The gas mileage was better, until I put 31 x 10.50 off - road tires on it. it does great off road, besides the 4Low clunking sound. Overall the Trooper is a great rig, that has tons of uses, and will make a great vehicle for anyone, as long as you're not too speed hungry!

1991 Isuzu Trooper 2.6


I love this car


The water pump and timing belt went out at 210.

Transmission seal went out 3 times.

Torque converter was bad when bought the people who fixed it didn't bold it correctly and it cracked in half.

Head had two cracks in it cost 1000 to fix.

Now the thermal valve broke so it runs kind of bad.

It started a mysterious oil leak by oil filter just this last week my mechanic said oil filter gasket was bad I bought a new one it cut leak in half, but not fixed it turned out to be the oil pressure switch right next to it.

My CV joint was destroyed by a rock because I was stupid and drove it off roading w/o a cv boot.

General Comments:

I absolutely LOVE this car even with all of its little problems I think I will never get rid of it.

Heck it has 236k miles on it, but it rides well and is extremely good off-roading heck I pulled out a few of my friends out of mud that I made it through. it take big hills like its nothing. All of my friends love it they wanted to one for themselves. This body style is the best ever. The interior is roomy and seats are comfortable. the only problem I have with it is the expensive part.

1991 Isuzu Trooper II 2.8 liter V6


Super reliable and reasonable transportation


Had to replace the original muffler at 100,000 miles, and replace the master slave cylinder due to rubber grommet wearing out around the same time. Interior in very good shape, only one small crack on the left side of the driver's seat. Clean as a pin. Runs well, gets around 18 MPG. Starts every time, great on the road, hauls tons, reliable, clean, inexpensive transportation. Cleans up real well, all shiny. Easy on tires too. I change oil regularly, and maintain it, for I plan to own it for years. I paid $2,000 for it in September, 2004.

1991 Isuzu Trooper LS


A reliable tank


Hand brake not functioning when purchased.

Changed muffler and serpentine belt after purchased.

Transmission oil leak. (to be fixed).

Little rust on right fender.

General Comments:

Just got this truck a few months ago and runs very well so far.

The boxy design allows lots of cargo.

The shape is timeless.

Is easy to fix and parts are affordable.

This is a simple, utilitarian and reliable 4x4 SUV.

They don't make trucks like this anymore.

Awesome height you feel you are in control of the road.

I have had a 1991 Trooper II for 5 years now.

Great vehicle, I was lucky enough to find one with a perfect body and interior. I have replaced all brakes, radiator, tranny/transfer case, exhaust and now the A/C compressor. It is essentially a brand new vehicle. I maintain my vehicles meticulously.

The one thing I have discovered is the 2.8 V6 is incredibly inefficient and gets very poor fuel economy with very low HP. I am considering changing to the replacement 3.4 litre V6. I wouldn't consider doing this if the vehicle wasn't in such great condition and so much fun to drive.
