A tragedy, the worst car I ever bought
The Rodeo performed well till she started showing her age at a young 60,000 miles.
Shifting between 1st, 2nd, and 3rd became a bull riding event enjoyed by all. No explanation available for the erratic transmission behavior.
Next came the infamous "check engine" light that would appear randomly and inspire the engine to freak out and eventually die at the stop light w/the hordes of humanity honking from behind. The diagnostic machine blamed my ignition system, so did I, but sadly no solution could be found.
Horrible. I bought the worst SUV ever.
Worry if you have one of these. It will fail you. Deal w/the hassles of selling asap. The only thing worse than buying this car would be keeping it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
