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.

2003 Isuzu Ascender Owner Comments

problem #1

Ascender 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 74,950 miles


I purchased a 2003 Isuzu Ascender in February 2004. In around March 2006, the transmission begin slipping. At the time there was approximately 74,000 miles on the vehicle, which meant is was still covered under warranty. I was not informed by the dealer at clay cooley motors that the warranty was not transferable. Therefore, I have been stuck with trying to fix the transmission. I contacted the Isuzu company and they could not offer any help and stated that they do not regulate the dealerships that carry and sell their brand vehicle.
