The Trooper stand true to its name by An MSN Autos Consumer on 08/22/2006. Trim: 1996 Isuzu Trooper LS (auto), Owned 6 years.
Pros: In deep snow and rough roads, it handles beautifully. Lots of cargo space. Plenty of backseat leg/head room. Great visibility out of the huge windows and sunroof. I have 124,000 miles on my 1996 and have had no problems except for a minor oil leak.
Cons: Fuel economy is not great. I'd like the back seats to fold flat to increase cargo area.
Overall review: I would buy another one.

Great Workhorse by Joe on 12/28/2005. Trim: 1996 Isuzu Trooper SE (auto), Owned 5 years.
Pros: Very very reliable. No problems except the air conditioning went a couple of years ago. This car is a workhorse. I have 135,000 miles on it and it runs strong. 4 wheel drive performance is perfect. Highly recommended for snowy areas.
Cons: Handling is a bit loose, and acceleration stinks. 6-cylinder gas guzzler. Sits high, but you can expect that from an SUV
Overall review: Excellent for anyone who doesn't care too much about style, but just needs a reliable ride to get from A to B (especially in snow.)

My Isuzu Trooper by Bdash from Massachusetts on 08/19/2002. Trim: 1996 Isuzu Trooper SE (auto), Owned 2 years.

Overall review: Great vehicle...great features...looking to buy a 2006 model
