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 #1

Jul 022005

Trooper 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 38,000 miles


Consumer owns a 2002 Isuzu Trooper. Consumer says that when putting the vehicle in park the indicator position will read park, but the vehicle will be in a neutral position. The vehicle can role freely forward or backwards. This problem has been going on for about a year. Vehicle had been to dealer 3 times, but could not do anything to fix the problem. She was told they could not duplicate the problem. Called when vehicle was at consumer's house and problem was recurring. Dealer sent someone out but still nothing was done about problem, which did not happen all the time, and did not seem to follow any pattern. The manufacturer was contacted twice, but problem recurred. The manufacturer wanted vehicle to be towed to a repair shop for further inspection.
