It's sad another Isuzu bit the dust but don't spend $4K on this truck, especially since it involves a terribly old engine to begin with... It will not last and your tranny will be next. It's time to move on. You'll get at least ten trouble-free, safer, and more economical years out of any new car out there right now.

I just bought a 1999 Honda Passport 4x4. I have owned it for less than one week and the rear trailing arm connector just broke off. It did not fall off the frame, but the frame rusted thru with the arm still attached. There is evidence of someone trying to fix it previously and covering it up with rubber undercoating. People on here are speaking of following the links to other forums where it has links to file a complaint and be part of a current class action lawsuit, but I see nothing anywhere pertaining to where to go.

Go to Isuzu Rodeo frame rust in edmunds, it is another forum, dedicated basically just to the problem you are talking about. All the info and instructions are there. Can you go back to the seller and get your money back? That is what I would do. They did not disclose to you the damage, and the faulty repair, probably can get your money back, small claims court if you have to, but after owning it a week, I would definitely be pursuing a full refund.

Jun 03, 2010 (8:53 am)
Does the 2.2L I4 have a timing belt? Does it need to be changed? & at what interval?
How is this SUV overall. I understand it's lacking in power, I'm just looking for a 2nd car to use. How's the 5 speed trans? Does it break easy? How are the costs to replace the clutch or do a timing belt if needed?
$4K with 92K is the deal I'm looking at.

#2270 of 2315 Ignition Switch Sticking on 01 Rodeo
Jun 12, 2010 (7:04 am)
The key binds and is hard to turn in my 01 Rodeo. About 6 months ago my mechanic replaced the neutral safety switch. Could this be related? I tried lock lubricate but it did not help.

Hello, I am hoping you have found a solution to this problem? I have the exact same one, what was the outcome? No one has posted an outcome online and I can't beleive this, they talk about a problem, but no outcome.

Our transmission finally went all except the reverse. We had the thing totally rebuilt a year and a half previously.... Have a new car now...Good Luck.

I had several problems with a '98 not shifting. Each time it was an electrical problem, such as a short in the trailer hitch wire. Take it to an electrical shop instead of a transmission shop.
