1994 Isuzu Trooper LS 3.2 from North America
It's dependable and gets you to your destination, even if a red light goes on
The steering wheel has a lot of play in it. When driving at high speeds over 50, when it's windy, you need to be careful.
When pulling heavy loads, the transmission overheats but recovers.
I have taken my Trooper across the country, a round trip from San Francisco to New York to Canada and back 3 times, and when I bought it, it has 150,000 miles on it already on it. I went from Washington to San Diego and back, 20 times plus. I can drive 800 miles plus in a day because it is so comfortable.
I was driving thru Colorado during a snow storm, where everyone was pulled off the road, either due to accidents, or just not being able to get thru. My Trooper barreled thru. On ice, it just hugs the road. In my Jeep I can only go maybe 10 mph, but in my Trooper I can go at least 20 and feel safe and confident I will not skid off. It's the weight that allows it to barrel thru and hug the road.
I currently have 260,000 miles on it, and the only thing I need to fix is the hood release latch.
I hate to sell it, but I am looking at buying a newer car. I might just keep it for a back up.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
