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 Rodeo Owner Comments

Very dissatisfied with vehicle. Itâ¿'s has many problems from start. While driving the vehicle and going into gears the vehicle surges forward. Car shimmy's with no available fix. Vehicle has strong suspension vibration and become more pronounced as speed increases. The ABS light illuminated and stayed on. The brake pedal never seems to go to the floor, it just gets sponging and you feel the ABS pulsating thru the pedal and the vehicle doesnt slow down, causing extended stopping distance. Fuel sending unit is operating erratically. Gas gauge reads empty nearly all the time regardless of level of fuel. After filling tank gauge will rise to 1/2 then as you drive a few miles it will drop and read empty. Passenger side air bag assembly mounts have come loose which causes air bag assembly to move around behind dash. This rattle is very bothersome. Paid a lot of money for the dealership to fix problem, but the rattle was back soon after. The bolts came loose on passenger's side front door. Wheel studs on 1998 Isuzu Rodeo strip off. Glove box in 1998 Isuzu Rodeo sticks and hard to open.
