Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: It WILL get you there.  Parking, reliability excellent.  Comfortable and roomy.  Rustproofing fantastic.
Cons: At 150K started to use oil pretty badly.
The Bottom Line: Best I ever owned.

I got hit the other day and my '94, 3.2 Liter, 5 speed Trooper is totalled.  This was my favorite of all the vehicles I've ever owned.  In the winter I kept narrow winter tread tires on it and left it in two wheel drive until the roads got so ... read more

Pros: Price,Value,Looks.Well made.
Cons: Parts prices/availability. Fluid Leaks.
The Bottom Line: A really sound value to give serious consideration to when looking for a bigger SUV.

I purchased my trooper with 170,000 miles on it. I usually would not consider a vehicle with so many miles, but, the trooper was a nice clean looking suv.It caught my eye on a local car lot. Some say it looks boxy. I say it looks clean. Straight ... read more

Isuzu Trooper sets the bar above average for midsize SUVs.

by
Nov 22, 2003 - Updated Feb 14, 2006 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Cargo space, comfortable ride for a truck based SUV, can be found quite cheap.
Cons: Some reliability problems, very-poor gas mileage, can be rusty if driven in heavily salted areas.
The Bottom Line: For those looking at SUVs purely for cargo and passenger hauling capabilities the Trooper is a strong contender, and 4WD is a bonus for northern winters.

----- General Trooper Information ----- The Isuzu Trooper has been produced for over twenty years worldwide, and is respected in many countries for it’s off-road prowess and reliability. Sadly, it hasn’t received such a warm welcome in ... read more

Reliable vehicle

by
Feb 16, 2001 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Won't die. Spacious work horse. Top end features at midmarket prices.
Cons: Would prefer a hatch in the back.
The Bottom Line: A spacious, well powered, reliable vehicle.

The 1994 Trooper was/is the most bang for the buck on the market. Though approaching an upper end SUV in standard features and quality,it has never quite gained acceptance from the Lexus/Range Rover/Landcruiser set. Consequently, you can get upper ... read more
