2004 Isuzu Axiom Owner Comments

I have a 2004 Axiom purchased from hancock Isuzu in columbia SC and app. 1 year ago my vehicle started hesitating when trying to accelerate. When I go to pull off the tachometer jumps to 3 or 4 rpms but the vehicle is not going anywhere. Finally, it will get gas and suddenly take off. It feels that the gas is not getting to the engine or either the transmission is sticking. It does this on occasions, but who know when it will do it next. My fear is it will do it when I pull out on a busy road and not take off in time and then another car will hit me. This can be a very dangerous problem if not fixed. I see others have complained about this too and I think Isuzu should be held responsible for making sure it gets fixed.

I was going to work and was pulling into a fenced in parking area, going approx. 10 mph. I gave the car a little gas and the accelerator stuck and the car took off like a bullet. I immediately put my foot on the brake and the car would not stop, so I put both feet on the brake and the car still would not stop. I hit a parked 1993 Crown Victoria that two people had just seconds before parked and got out of. After I hit the parked car the accelerator went back to normal. The crash pushed the parked car into the fence, moving that car two to three feet on impact. The two people that witnessed this ran to my car and opened both the driver and passenger doors and my feet were still on the brake all the way floor. My air bags did not go off because I was on the brake so hard that my bumper went under the Crown Victoria. My bumper put a small dent in the crown's gas tank. I did not get hurt because there was no impact to the bumper. Estimated damage to my car is $4600. To $5000. It busted my radiator and buckled my hood. I called the police and contacted my insurance company and requested that my insurance company do an investigation to see why the accelerator stuck. They said that they would bring in an engineer to determine what the failure was. I had it towed to the body shop. The insurance company had the body people to look at the manual linkage on the throttle. The body people said that it looked fine and that was the end of the big investigation. The insurance co. Said that was all they could do. No qualified mechanic has ever looked at the car since the accident. The insurance company is done with their investigation.
