Very dangerous, folds like a tin can even in low-speed collisions. by J K on 03/25/2012. Trim: 1997 Isuzu Rodeo S 4WD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: It was cute. I like the look of the Rodeo, that's why I bought my '97. I also like the external spare tire, allowing more cargo space.
Cons: It's a death trap. My rodeo nearly killed me, at no more than 35 mph. It began fishtailing (perhaps I clipped a curb?), and it was throwing me left to right so hard that I couldn't get the wheel steady. The vehicle completely lost it, and flipped, landing upside down. The roof caved in on my head as though the entire vehicle were a Pepsi can. I am very fortunate to even be alive to write this review, although I have a concussion and spinal injuries. I didn't realize how squirrely they were until it was too late, so hopefully my review will help someone to make a more educated decision. If this thing had wrecked at any significant speed, like on a highway for example, I would be dead.
Overall review: It's a great little SUV, and fun to drive. I truly loved my little Rodeo. But I regret ever purchasing it. I now drive a Volvo. ;)
