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 6-cyl

  • 89,000 miles


While driving on a major highway our 2006 Isuzu Ascender made a lot noise and stopped running, luckily we were able to drift off the highway onto the side of the road with out getting myself and my children killed. This vehicle has given me nothing but problems since I bought it used. A month after I purchased it I was told it would need a brand new engine because of "supposed" value taps and now I believe the transmission blew! I am so upset I hear there is a recall on the transmission but all I can locate now is the driver side door switch recall. Can someone help me figure out what has gone wrong with my car!
