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.

REALLY BAD , Isuzu will fix for free or they said they will total the car and pay me the market value. Other wise this is a great car. Too bad GM messed this model line up when they had there had in the Isuzu truck/suv line.

2001 Isuzu Rodeo. Still looked great, ran perfectly, No mechanical issues. Stopped to have the muffler fixed and was told that I could not drive the vehicle. Frame had rotted in half just behind the drivers seat. Had a body shop patch weld the frame back together and just traded it in for the Mazda. Now I have a $350 dollar car payment that I should not have to have nor can I really afford it but I had no choice. Had I been driving down the highway doing 60 miles an hour and that framed and split, I wouldn't be writing this complaint. Anyone have any ideas what to do. I already filed with the NHTSA but have heard nothing.

My 60 year old mother was driving my car while I was on vacation and that stabilizer arm just broke off the frame due to severe rust now my car is not fixable so I'm out $5000.
