Best little 4x4 I've ever owned! by Joshua from Roanoke VA on 05/04/2006. Trim: 2000 Isuzu Amigo S V6 4WD Soft Top, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: This is the 2nd Isuzu Amigo that I purchased. This is an Ironman Edition with all the features. Soft top and even sun roof are easy to remove. I like the 4x4 in the truck. Has about 54k miles on it and we have taken it through several trails already (pics at rockymountvadotcom). When placed next to a Jeep Wrangler, the Amigo did very well, actually it did better than the Jeep. The only thing thats different from the two models is that the Jeep has more flex in the forn b/c of the solid front axle as Where the Amigo has indep. front and solid rear axle. Over all the Amigo is a true go anywhere little truck, mud, snow, creeks, bakc woods, etc.
Cons: I dont like the push button 4x4. Although, Isuzu did make the standard floor shift from 4x4 high to low. The radio was swapped out for a nicer one and theres no place to mount a cb inside or out. Also with gas near $3.00, it doesnt get good gas mileage like a ford focus does, about 300 miles per tank of gas. cost about $35 to fill up each time.
Overall review: The Amigo in my judgement is a very good little truck for the money. It's not a Jeep or H2, but people are really amazed when I go 4x4 'n with them. Other 4x4's that come into class with it include, Jeep Wrangler, H2, Honda CRV, Ford Explorer Sport Edition and Chevy Blazer.
