Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Ascender 4WD 6-cyl

The 2003 Isuzu Ascender is the same vehicle as a Chevrolet trailblazer and GMC Envoy. At approximately 51,000 miles and out of warranty. The fan clutch motor had to be replaced. I had to assume full payment to replace it. Now, the truck sounded like the undercarriagewas rattling. Had it to a mechanic, and the mechanic stated that I must have been the sway bar links replaced in the vehicle. Upon further discussion the mechanic determine D that he had to replace them on the trailblazer, and the service manager had to have them replaced on the Envoy, both with the same platform. This seemed to be a design problem that GM and its affiliates should be responsible for replacing.
