Hello all. I have been kicking around the idea of replacing my 1991 S10 Blazer 2dr. 2WD for an SUV with 4WD. Have done alot of looking on the internet and am not impressed with the GM or Ford fair...Am really interested in the Isuzu line of TRUCKS (not cars with a lift and big tires)... Can only afford about 25k all told. Wish could afford a Trooper, but seems to get one with some options it will get "pricey". Any owners have info on the Rodeo Sport?
You should be able to get a 2001 Trooper for that $25K sometime in Aug-sept time frame. It's well worth the money IMHO. Where are you located? If it's within driving distance of NYC, I have a great dealer there.
Staten Island Isuzu/Subaru ask for Mark 718-979-9595
I just got a 01 Trooper LS w/moonroof for $29,710 + $20 "document fee" and tax and tag in NY. With 0% for 60 months, this makes the truck atleast $6,000 cheaper cause of the interest saving alone. So it was as if I paid $23,710 because of the Int. saving. You can't get a Pathfiner, 4runner, Montero Sport with sunroof or heated seats at that price. You would have to spend closer to 30k plus interest to get that(makes it almost $36k to get them) Make the Isuzu's a much better deal than anything out there. If you pay cash, then a different story.
#239 of 271 Isuzu rep / corporate vehicles are a good choice

While it's true that the huge discounts make buying a *new* Trooper a very attractive choice, buying one of these "Isuzu rep" or "corporate" vehicles is a great way to get an almost-new Trooper for thousands of dollars less than a brand-new one.
The trick seems to be finding an Isuzu dealer that regularly stocks its lot with these barely used creampuffs, which they buy at Isuzu-dealer-only auctions periodically held by Isuzu of America.
I bought a 98 with Performance Package, 7000 miles, this way. Cost $21,000 (no trade-in involved). A new one would have been about $3,000 more. Like basketballkid's, my Troop was considered new and I am the original owner in Isuzu's mind for warranty purposes. I received the new-car questionnaire etc. I was supposed to get one with Luxury Package for $21,950 but dealer claimed an honest mistake at the last minute and said real price was $24,950. They offered it to me for $23,900, which I refused. I had them dead to rights for $21,950 but didn't want to fight them for it. In hindsight, I should have bought the Luxury Package; I wish I had the huge moonroof, heated leather, etc.
