2001 Isuzu Rodeo Owner Comments

problem #2

Rodeo 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 20,000 miles


The complaint is a drive shaft problem, izusu is also aware of the problem. They have issued a buletin to the dealers to the defect. The pblemm is that when you step onn the brake you feel a thump in the rear end of the car. There has to be wear and tear on the drive shaft spines or even the ubolts on the drive shaft. I was told by Isuzu that there is a special stick grease that was developed by General Motors that suppose to solve this problem. Well! in my case it has not resolved the problemm as the vehicle has been back to the dealer 3 to 4 times for the same problem.
