1998 Isuzu Amigo 2.2L from North America
Fuel gauge of course.
Knowing full well about previous reviews, I bought this as a second vehicle for the back road exploration.
It will climb and crawl over anything I care to challenge. Ground clearance isn't as high as a Jeep, but it has multiple skid plates and isn't a problem.
The 4 cylinder has plenty of power at 3600' elevation, and always delivers in the 20s.
The biggest surprise is how nice it handles and rides. The torsion bar front suspension eats up the bumps. It is a full fledged truck underneath, and the slightly bouncy ride was expected.
It's easy to work on for a novice mechanic, and parts are quite available and inexpensive.
This is not some glowing approval for an extinct brand, but a nod for anyone eying an off-road candidate.
I specifically chose a 4 cylinder for the economy and to avoid the known V6 troubles.
I hope this helps someone's decision for a fun, tough option to a capable Jeep type alternative vehicle.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
