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 Trooper Owner Comments

problem #2

Trooper 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 79,000 miles


Engine in my 2002 Isuzu Trooper burned up the main rod bearing in piston one due to insufficient oil pressure. Engine had to be replaced. Truck has 79K miles on it and was out of warranty. Isuzu of North America stated nothing would be done via the manufacturer. I replaced the engine myself at a cost of $4800.

When in motion for long periods of time, the vehicle will lose acceleration power. This will continue until consumer is able to pull off the road to restart the engine. The egr valve has repeatedly been replaced, but the problem is still in existence.
