2002 Isuzu Rodeo I have numerous problems with this Isuzu. I purchased it new and I am the only driver. Vehicle wastes oil, motor heads been replaced, brakes changed several times. Transmission changed or repaired. Ignition replaced no warning lights about overheating or anything, egr changed. There are so many things I can't remember them all. Now the vehicle is making a loud popping noise sounds like from the rear door and the driver side window does not go all the way up. I think I received a lemon!

These incidents happened with two vehicles of the same make, model but different years. While driving at 25 mph, the consumer applied the brake pedal and felt a thumping sensation in the pedal. When the thumping occurred the brakes failed completely. On both occasions, the consumer had to ride in the shoulder to keep from colliding with other vehicles. The first incident took place when the consumer was approaching a stop sign at a normal speed she stepped on the brakes and there was a thumping under the brake pedal and the vehicle failed stop and slid partially into an intersection. The service rep stated it was from the anti-lock brake system being activated and the brakes performed as designed. Also the vehicle failed to start, the dealer found the ground harness on the alternator loose and stripped out which caused the vehicle not to start. The temperature gauge went to the red zone.

I have a 2002 Isuzu Rodeo that has ABS sensors replaced twice within a two-month period. Bought brand new less than a year ago, and both times the brakes made noise and the ABS light came on. The second time, my ABS failed to engage and I was about a foot away from hitting a police car.

Consumer called complaining about hood problems. Hood will not close as it suppose to. Also, was having problems with ABS brake system. In addition, vehicle was leaking oil from the front part where the engine was located. Dealer was contacted, and stated that they will pick up the vehicle to find out what was wrong with it. Manufacturer was not contacted at the time of this call.
