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.

2002 Isuzu Rodeo Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 012016

Rodeo LS 3.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 134,000 miles


charging problem replaced battery, cables and terminals

i definately got handed a lemon. first off the transmission got replaced by snider then a week later it went out again after a month went by again with a new fly wheel and transmission coolant line lasted another week then found out computer was original problem When i got the car back with new computer blinkers wouldn't work and charging system problem i replaced battery, cables and terminals and it still wont start alternator shows 10 and battery fine oh yeah the tie rod ends now need replaced as well there was no problem with before computer. I realize some of thses problems may be shop related but most of it is JUST Isuzu I am an appreciater of a car that will last and i believe in doing things completely and correctly but some of these engineering issues really put ISUZU lovers in a bind with nowhere to turn to when these THESE certified small shops cannot diagnose it properly or the part is on nationwide back order. on top of the fact that we end up paying for the mechanic throwing parts at it til they fix it This is my second rodeo it is a great car but when it breaks it breaks everything
