    Hey All!

    Really glad to have found this place!
    Mid-2000 I was having the oil changed in my Outback Sport...the dealership next door had a black VX on a turntable.
    3 hours later (including 2 calls to my wife), I was driving home in my new VX.
    Yep, I have the notorious "cocking window" issue (been serviced 3 x and it's still screwed up) and the rubber coming off of the headlights, but I love this thing and wouldnt choose to part with it...period.
    Hope to contribute some info over time!
    All the best to everyone...

    I guess WSG feels it's time to introduce myself.
    I am a 22 year old male, born and raised in the Washington, D.C. metro area. I am attending Law school at Catholic University. I chose the vehicross because I saw one at the car show when i was about 16 (Japanese version with the back-up camera). Went online to get info, was one of the first to see them come off the truck in '98. Went into shock over the 30K price tag and never thought I could get one.
    I started shopping for a new car last fall and was lucky to find one with less than 5K miles. I like it mostly for its looks and the fact that not too many people have them. To think I actually considered getting an xterra for a while.

    Nice to meet everybody, I've been reading post on this and the other board since about this time last year. So I've gotten to know what you guys are all about.


    OT: Does anyone have an 18" rim they can sell me, I bent one of mine pretty badly and don't like driving on the donut.

    Smile hello

    Hey, gang...my name is Erik. Just found this site tonight while doing a search on Isuzu dealers in my area. Looks great! I'm so-oooo jealous seeing those photos of the VX owners driving in the middle of the desert with all those cool rock formations!

    I live in PA...and unfortunately, there's nothing like that around here. Although, one time I did find a construction site with some dirt hills...

    Angry HI all

    OK, I was slow, but I finally found you Scott, Tone, Anita and the rest of the bunch over here! I'm Jim, an airline Captain in Missouri and former Air Force T38 and F4 pilot, and my 1999 Vehicross ( owned since April 29, 1999 ) just turned over 133,000 miles. My VX has seen a lot of offroad driving up the trail to my cabin in the Ozarks. No mechanical problems and the engine and drive train are doing great. I use Mobil 1 synthetic and change every 4,000 miles and it just started burning about a quarter of a quart every 4,000 miles -- insignificant in my book. I drive it in power mode all the time, except in mud or snow and get 14 mpg city and 15 mpg highway. I've done all my own maintenance, escept I've had the transmission fluid changed at the dealership every 30,000 miles. I do the engine oil, transer case, differential and radiator myself. I replaced the brakes at 85,000 miles, I'm on my third set of tires, and second battery. Besides for the standard window lift fix, the drivers leather seat is showing a little wear at the bottom left front, the orange door insert on the driver's side is developing a 2 inch crack at the lock post, and my CD changer stopped playing the last two CD positions last month. No problems with the hood insert or lights. Still original muffler and eshaust and shocks and coil springs and with all the mileage and offroad use they've softened a bit and I like the softer ride even better now, so I don't plan on replacing them. Modifications include Safari Bar and fog lamps, 1972 Cadillac Fleetwood horn ( obtained at the junkyard and it sounds so deep and cool ), dynamatting, and as my Goodyear AT/S tires have worn in the last 40,000 miles I'm about to go back to the Goodyear MT/Rs even though they're a little noisy -- I loved them before and supposedly they have a new tread compound that doesn't wear as fast. Good to be with you all again!

    Hi everyone. Just wanted to introduce myself to the club. My name is Clyde and I just bought my VehiCross last week. So far I'm loving it (except for the windows). I think it's a fun vehicle to drive and my girlfriend and I always get a smile out of all the attention and reactions we get from other drivers while in it. We're still getting used to all the "rubber-necking" This past week I've been looking at wheels I could use in the winter time since I don't want to tear up the chrome wheels I have on it now. If anybody could give me info on whether Chevrolet truck wheels can be made to fit on the VX somehow I would sure appreciate the info. Thanks.

    Just thought I'd introduce myself. Name's Justin and I bought a 2001 Foxfire about four months ago. It's still bone stock, but I'm really enjoying it.

    Greetings

    I just purchased my VX. gotta say i love it already. Saw one back in late 99, early 00 and knew i had to have one. Then found out they stopped making them.

    So finding one in a dealership was a hassle. First one i saw was white. (blech) then about a year later, now, i found mine. silver, gotta love it.

    Anyway, anyone know a good aftermarket shop that i can do a little customizing at?
    Also, anything out there yet that gets rid of the doughnut spare for a full size? (the spare cover wont fit over a full size)

    Soon-to-be-owner, I hope!

    Hi everyone. I have been vehicle shopping for the past 3 weeks and it's been a disappointing experience since I've found NOTHING that excites me. I was torn between an SUV and a car, but still, nothing I looked at made me want to own it. I was hoping to have a new vehicle before the snow hits because the car I'm driving now is awful in the snow, so I got on E-Bay for the heck of it to see what's out there that I may have not already checked out. And there it was - a VehiCross! My jaw dropped and I KNEW I just found the vehicle I HAD to have! I started doing some research and homework and THEN found out how truly incredible this vehicle is, as well as hard to find. Needless to say, I've also got hubby convinced that THIS is exactly the vehicle for me, so we are on our mission to find one. Peter, yours looks fabulous, but it's so darned far away. How does one go about getting a vehicle across country, short of flying out and driving back? There's one in NY I hope to see next week, and one right here in Connecticut, but I won't make a final choice until I've checked out every one I can find in the country. Thanks for all being here, I'm sure this will be a daily stop for me now.

    ANY HELP

    Whats up... me and my fiance just bought our 1st VX. It is a '99 ironman. We both work for GM companys so that proves that there is nothing out there like the VX for us to buy 1. We saw it in a trader and my fiance had to have. We saw it and 2 days later we had it. I am currently trying to find simple custom parts for it so if anyone can help... much thanks -- also what is the largest size most aggressive tire you can put on without any lift??? Can I get some help... Thanks
