Isuzu Rodeo Doin' the Mud
As you can see, the mud is really slick. It's been saturated by water all
mosoon season and I of course was the guinne pig. The two other trucks here
waited til I tried it first to see if they would play too.

A tour of my 1996 Isuzu Rodeo 4x4 with Calmini lift
I grabbed the camera and got some video of the rig. I have been pondering
selling or trading this for a smaller fuel efficient car for my new 100
mile daily commute.

2000 3.2 Isuzu Rodeo Engine Tick/Knock
Here's a video of my 3.2 Rodeo. You can hear the ticking from the different
spots on the engine. It's got 158K and I run 10W30 Valvoline Oil with a
Bosch oil filter. I change the oil religiously. I'm not sure what's causing
the ticking. It's louder on the passenger side. Between the ticking, bad
a/c pulley, and no cat converter, this thing sounds like it's dieing!

What Camerons Car Reviews has to say about the 2002 Rodeo: With Isuzu
having moderate sales compared to the Ford Explorer, the Rodeo is mostly
for the Isuzu die hard fans. The interior is fairly basic and the seats are
little uncomfortable and feel like lawn chairs. Power comes from either a
2.2 L 4-Cylinder or a 3.2 L V6 made into a 5-Speed Manual or 4-Speed
Automatic. With that said, the Rodeo pumps out 205 horsepower with its V6. Many
consumers love the Rodeo's great rugged looks on the exterior, but on the
interior things could be a tad better. It's close relative the Honda
Passport is no longer going to be Honda's top of the line SUV as Honda is
now trying to release it's own new crossover SUV called the Pilot which
should be a success. All in all it's an okay car from Isuzu, it also
doesn't help that there is a swing out hatch.
