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.

1997 Isuzu Rodeo Owner Comments

problem #1

May 302008

Rodeo V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 84,000 miles


This is an 11 year old Car with a beautiful paint job, Great engine (ticks a little from lifters) Great in snow . Well taken car of as I was the only owner. I took it in for inspection on 5/30/08 and if failed due to the frame being so rusted it looks like swiss cheese. It is unrepairable and with have to be sold to a scrap yard at $300.00. Toyota and Nissan both used the same cheap frames and are standing by their customers and giving them the value of the car or an exchange for something on the lot. Isuzu told me sorry nothing they can do Rust Warranty is 6 years or 100,000 miles which ever is first.
