Rock Solid - Go Anywhere Reliability!!!
Starter went bad at 40,000.
Valve covers leaked a little (fixed under warranty).
Exhaust leaks at the flexible mesh joint.
Rear window wouldn't latch (fixed under warranty).
Dash lights burn out a little too often.
I've beat the heck out of my 1995.5 Rodeo LS since I bought it new in 1996 and it keeps coming back for more. NO major mechanical failures of any kind. I replaced the starter myself (although you have to take the starter apart to get it around the header pipe). But other than that, with any kind of regular maintenance, the '95 is one of the most reliable SUVs on the road. The paint alone is incredible after 12 years.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
