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.

Feedback of owner 2001 Rodeo (Isuzu 6-cd changer stereo/fm/cassette) hello, I am an owner of a 2001 Isuzu Rodeo ls, I always liked Isuzu before buying brand new, but I'm very unhappy with "the little things" alot. Isuzu 6 -cd changer is deplorable; I've had it already replaced.(fortunate once under warranty) this month 2005 the 6-cd changer just "died" again and all of my new 6 cds that I've purchased are stuck and damaged, with no emergency way to extract it. Customer told order would be over $400 dollars to fix. I dont even want another Isuzu 6-cd changer(3 times broken). My car faults were not fault of route 1/open road Isuzu nor South NJ eaton buehler/Isuzu service management. Their dealers worked pretty hard & were good. This cd/changed design flaw issue is Isuzu issue. Isuzu should have recalled item there's numerous user complaints of 6-cd stereo Isuzu radio on internet. Got several other fail items, but why ? bring them up to american Isuzu. Letter is to inform I will strongly considering selling my Isuzu Rodeo. I will inform all my peers, family and business folks never ever to purchase a "new" Isuzu Rodeo. I may create newsletter details story for distribution on web about 2001 Isuzu Rodeo failures, in poor design. I will inform folks loud and clear to any customers seeking Isuzu vehicles. I lost 6 new cd's in the cd-changer damaged for a 3rd time. I am tired of losing cd's within a defective product Isuzu does not stand by. Will spend our money elsewhere & encourage others to do same. Sorry, just the way I feel, apologies. The service assistance for mechanical items are great and complaint is against of 2001 Isuzu Rodeo flawed items. Thank you...
