Buying a used Isuzu Rodeo
Hope someone can help as I'm new to this forum, or any other for that matter. I've owned a 99 rodeo 4wd for 6 years and it was a great, versatile and reliable vehicle. Just this weekend I over- corrected after hitting the gravel shoulder and flew into a deep ditch. My 17 yr old son was in the passenger seat, and other than some stiffness and bruising we are both fine [thank God]. We hit the bank hard and the truck is a write-off, but I'm sure that the truck's sturdy frame is what saved us. Also the cop said it's a wonder that we didn't roll it.
Although I learned a valuable lesson [ I was distracted by my cell phone, like an idiot, and could have killed my youngest son! ], I hope to acquire another rodeo for the two of us to drive.
My question is; of the last 3 model years [02,03,04] which is the most reliable, safest and fuel-efficient? 4WD only please [we're in Canada!]
