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.

2006 Isuzu Ascender Owner Comments

problem #1

  • 65,500 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Isuzu Ascender. While in driving in reverse at approximately 5 mph, the contact heard a squeaking sound from the steering wheel. In addition, when making a right or left turn the squeaking sound could be heard intermittently at different speeds. The vehicle was taken to an auto repair shop where the mechanic stated that the steering would need a flush exchange. The failure continued after the repair. The vehicle was taken back to the auto shop where the mechanic stated there was a recall under NHTSA campaign id number: 05V455000 (steering:hydraulic power assist:hose, piping, and connections) that could have been related to the failure and referred her to the dealer. The dealer was made aware of the failure and advised that contact that the VIN was not included in the recall. The vehicle was not further repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 65,500.
