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.

2004 Isuzu Rodeo Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 042005

Rodeo 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 9,632 miles


Contact stated water splashed underneath the vehicle and got into the fuel tank. The dealer said this problem was due to submerging the vehicle into water. They suggested installing splash guard. The service dealer dropped the fuel tank and cleaned the fuel system. The repair was not covered under the warranty. Updated 12/14/2005. The water got into the tank through the vapor/charcoal canister. The vehicle had never been submerged in water. The consumer explained that since she lives on a dirt road water accumulated in the bumps on the road which the splashes onto the undercarriage of the vehicle. The consumer purchased the SUV specifically for the rainy season and expected that the vehicle would perform as well as the 1997 Isuzu which she owned previously. The 1997 Rodeo never had this problem. The consumer requested reimbursement from the manufacturer.
