Expert Rating

Our expert ratings are based on seven comprehensive criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Roomy, elegant and comfortable, the Isuzu Trooper suffers from the Rodney Dangerfield syndrome: it don't get no respect, or at least not enough. And the same can be said for its Acura variant, the SLX. In fact, the Trooper and SLX have been the targets of some distinctly hostile press, thanks to last year's scare story by a national consumer's magazine which suggested these two vehicles are exceptionally prone to rollover accidents. We'll address that issue in a little more detail later, but let's make something clear right now: we think this is nonsense. In addition to our own evaluations, various members of our team, who could roll over most any SUV if they really tried to, have been involved in a number of formal track tests involving both the Trooper and the SLX, and neither of them showed any unusual inclination to go into the shiny-side-down mode. In addition to being capable, well equipped and exceptionally roomy, the Trooper and SLX are well priced to compete in the borderline luxury area, one of the hottest segments of the sport-utility market. Our tester was the mid-grade Trooper LS, with four-wheel drive. Mechanical, feature and dynamic observations concerning the Trooper apply equally to the Acura SLX.
