My daughter purchased a 2000 Trooper with 41,000 miles on it. She
loaded her stuff into it and moved out to Utah. She had a total of 1500
miles on it and the engine seized up on her. There was only about 1
quart in the engine at the time this happened. She put and some of that
leaked out on the flatbed. The mechanic who has it now cannot find any
leak and says that "Isuzus are notorious for burning oil." 4 quarts in
1500 miles sounds pretty rediculous. The body on this vehicle is
immaculate. The mechanic tells me we are talking about $8,300.00. She
paid $7,700.00 for this vehicle. At this point I think we should scrap
the car. Is this worth anything in its current state?
Does anyone have any advice?
