2002 Isuzu Trooper 3.0 duty 3.0 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
This car was the worst car I ever bought
The exhaust went 4 times, the dealer continually tried to replace it and weld it to no avail.
The windscreen cracked with no apparent impact.
The engine overheated on 4 occasions.
The turbo failed once.
All this on a brand new car.
I bought this car brand new from an Isuzu dealer. I had it 11 months, and suffered the problems above. It was continually broken.
Every time it broke it would be collected and a hire car left in its place, but when you buy a jeep you don't want to run around in a fiat panda, rover 45 or a vauxhall astra for weeks on end.
I kept the car for 11 months, then brought the dealer to court when he wouldn't replace it. We settled out of court.
The car was thirsty and unreliable.
The interior was poor compared to the Toyota and Mitsubishi.
Load space was huge, and the ride was good.
All round vision was excellent.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
