#9 of 12 1995, feedback before purchase

Hey there, I live in Bozeman Montana where it just snowed 2 feet so Ive set out to find myself a winter vehicle.
I came across a 1995 izusu rodeo v6 4X4 5spd with 223000 miles for $1100. From what I could grasp from the owner over the phone the vehicle is still in tip top shape with a higher than normal oil consumption. No un-natural engine noise, shock and struts are good, winter tires have only seen 2 seasons. The pictures also look flawless. SO! my question to you is what do you think? Im going to test drive sunday and will buy it on the spot if things go well.
What should I be looking for? Are there any special things that only a long time owner of a isuzu would know that I should know? I really just need something that'll last me 2-3 more years so the high mileage doesnt bug me a bit.... if the car makes it 2-3 more years of course. If you want to see the pictures i can email you.

I have a 2001 Isuzu Rodeo and occasionally all of the lights begin to pulsate...not drastically but slightly...enough to be noticeable in the heaqdlights. Anyone else had this problem? Thanks.

I was at a local car dealership and saw a 2004 Isuzu Rodeo Sport. It has 65K on it, auto and looks to be nicely loaded. I think the price was about 10K. Are these things pretty reliable? I know nothing about this model. It is a 4X4 model. I don't even think Izusu's are around anymore, are they? Any thoughts on this vehicle would be greatly appreciated. THANKS!

Honda Passports wre nothing more than rebadged Rodeos
The guys in our shop sure didn't think much of them as they caused a lot of troubles compared to Hondas.
The engines seem to get pretty tired at an early age.
I just think there are better choice out there.
