1995 Isuzu Trooper 3.2 SOHC from North America
Starter motor at 90k and 180k miles.
Plastic radiator header cracked at 200k.
Fuel pump failing at 190k.
Few leaky gaskets replaced. That's it.
Extremely durable and reliable. Never any issues after 18 years on the road.
Interior is good quality and hard wearing. Paint is only just fading after 18 years in the Southern California sun.
Chronic hydraulic valve lifter noise intermittently from 100k miles onwards. Doesn't seem to bother it.
Plan on getting at least 300k on the original engine and transmission. Have seen Troopers at 400k+ on the original engine, that have never had the heads removed.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
