1998 Isuzu Rodeo experienced brake failure. The brakes were intermittent. The brake pedal would go to the floor and lock up. A few days later the ABS light had come on. The problem was diagnosed as a rear brake sensor and was replaced. The molding on the driver door was loose, the latch on the console had broken, the sunvisor on the passenger side had fallen down, and the center caps on the front wheels had pitted. The consumer requested a buy back and or trade in.
