It was weird because the design was ahead of its time when it was release. The public was not ready for it, they were still into the box type design. It fits right in with the crowd now that everybody has catch up to design, lol.

I used to own a vehicross - before my FJ - and now my hummer h1 :) Loved it. So fun to drive! A lot of VX owners Rhino-lined the cladding to make it more resilient. The AWD system was actually amazing for the era. Used to go offroading with a bunch of my land rover buddies and it was able to do everything they were doing. The rear visibility issue was actually a blessing in disguise - I could always tell when I was being tailgated when I couldn't see the headlights of the a-hole.

I liked Isuzu new direction design in the late 90's and early 2000s. Where they fucked up was Isuzu was known for rugged, affordable utilitarian vehicles and they suddenly made exotic and strange and overpriced ones. They weren't bad they just outpriced themselves from the people who usually bought them.

Ha I know about these. They were one of those concept cars that actually got made. They came out with a tiny engine and turbo and they were like 10 years ahead of their time IMO. There is one lonely one in Brisbane Australia... I've met the lady who owns it and she did try to sell it to me :-).

Isuzu had a windshield wiper blade shake function on the impulses, to shake the ice off. the more you know. Rear passenger are meant to be mostly accessed by the passenger side where the seat go forward more, like any 2 door cars of the era

Hi Doug and hi comments section, I've owned a 2000 VX for about 3 years now and I cannot find anything online about what the little circular lamps are in the front lip. The manual suggests that they are marker lamps but they kind of look like foglamps. However, I have no idea how to turn them on. There is wiring coming from them but I don't know where it goes yet. Please help!

I owned one of these from 02 to around 2015. I got around 298000 from the engine before cylinder number 3 lost compression. The automatic transmission started slipping around 260000, but just in the morning once, and twice closer to 290000, but always worked fine after it warmed, about a mile or 2. It's a fun drive from the drive seat, great on trail. Mine burned about a quart oil every 800 miles. It had over heating issue when I used the ac. Until I got the thermostat fixed- which is hard fix on this car(and only use orginal Isuzu parts). The auto windows started going out around 100000 - still worked, just off alignment. Of All the time i owed it i can count the number of times, on my hands, i punished someone to sit in the back seat lol. Some people didn't like it style much but most people liked alot. I got looks and accolades till the day I sold. I really enjoyed mine and would have bought another but in my 40s now and this really is a toy and oem Isuzu parts are almost impossible to get now.

I’m in the car business, and thought this was a cool SUV. However, it doesn’t seem to have the utility in sUv. Only two doors? The visibility was horrible, and the cargo area was relatively small. It was also very expensive and had too much gray plastic cladding wrapping the bottom third of the body of the vehicle. You’ve got to love the gun safe fuel door with lock.

What a horrible review. He keeps saying "Weird". Why? It's INNOVATIVE! This guy knows NOTHING about the car! I'm torturing myself just listening to this loser. He must have NO artistic blood in him. I can't believe he has over a million views. Here's a little of what he missed. They did not have a camera cuz in 1998 when they were building the first US VX, our laws did not allow rear view cameras. It was an invasion of privacy. How many cars pre 1999 had rearview cameras in the US? Isuzu told me that DIRECTLY. They wanted to camera but could not. The "option" button was and can be used for a door latch. He must have recieved a replacedment key fob. The original ones say "Option". Some VX owners have installed a door popper and there's PLENTY of room to install one. Mine has it. It can also be programmed to open the garage door. Again...like mine. The seats come in gray/black also as an option....mine is gray. That vehicle he is showing has added hitch, side steps and an aftermarket bumper cover inspired by the convertible VX-O2. The 4 wheel indicator is great especially when in reverse so you can back up a hill in 4WD and the indicator confirms you are in 4Low which in 1999 was AWESOME cuz you don't have to go outside to lock your hubs. Why would't this loser like that feature? The car is FAST on dirt and sand and won Baja challenges. It's also fast when pulling a small trailer or boat. Why is it slower otherwise? Ccuz it's 2 tons. It's built to last and is a monster! Not your flakey CRV. My 7 ft friend is able to climb into the back and there's plenty of legroom. This dweeb is just uncoordinated. If he wants to review a Rav 4, then go review one. This is the ONLY car that is a CROSS between a sports car and an SUV. What's his problem with map lights and what's wrong with a dome light that is simple to operate and clean in design. Just push it. Lot of cars now do that. He's in idiot.

Oh yeah if this was brought back as it looks but updated Apple car play stereo and race car seats that grip you and don’t let go while you are in the car and No CVT and I’d drive the hell out of this. Throw in a good AWD like Subaru or a decent 4wd like on a Chevy truck or Jeep Cherokee

I watch a lot of Doug’s videos since they’re quite thorough but I’m just surprised about the bit of him trying to get into the back from the driver side. Anyone who’s driven 2 door cars know the passenger side front seat will usually slide further to the front to allow rear passengers. It’s unfortunate no such attempt was made.
