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.

1998 Isuzu Hombre Owner Comments

problem #2

Mar 062001


  • Manual transmission
  • 60,000 miles


Consumer had to replace the windshield wiper unit which cracked twice. She contacted the dealer and manufacturer, and was told that moisture got into the unit and caused the problem. The unit just stopped working with no warning. When replacing the switch the wipers didn't always come on.

problem #1

May 012003

Hombre 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 24,000 miles
Windshield wipers began to work intermitently. No particular pattern back in November of 2002. My Isuzu dealer said that there was a recall in effect but only up to the 1997 model year for the Isuzu Hombre. The defect is the printed circuit board built into the windshield wiper assembly. The cost was over $80 to replace and that was because my brother who is a mechanic performed the repair after the Isuzu dealership service department diagnosed the issue.
