Pros: panel display lets me know who many miles I have before I run out of gas
Cons: cd player is cheaply made
Advice: if you like the Rodeo you will love the AXIOMI purchased the 2004 Isuzu Axiom a few weeks ago. I traded in my Rodeo for it. I like the Axiom because it has room enough for my family. My kids are tall and my spouse is tall. I love this SUV because it is just the right size for me. I recommend it.
Pros: Info Display pannel and high horse power.
Cons: No automatic head lights. No daytime running lights.
Advice: TRy it, you will love it!Good: The Axiom is an excellent choice for the smaller SUVs. The direct inject, 250 HP engine makes the Axiom accelerate like a sports car. No more waiting at the ramp to merge with a fast traffic stream, no more worring about accelerating up a hill, no more worries about anything connected to low horse power or acceleration. The electric seats are heated and confortable. Back seat is easily folded dowen to handle big payloads. The remote transmitter is build into the key or vice versa and is impossible to lose without losing the entire key. Electric roof operates flawlessly and is a good feature. Display info pannel is great. I did not purchase the On-Sat system. Bad: The lights are not automatic. I would think automatic lights would be a standard item. I must remind myself to go back and cut the light off at night. I cannot find the rear window washer fluid - if it has a washer/squiter. No trailer hitch ncluded as a standard option. And last, the passenger seat does not have a lumbar support.
