#1 of 271 Oil change, 2nd recall mod, rear door adjustment, intermittent horn operation...
Dec 21, 2000 (4:03 am)
Have scheduled my first appointment with the dealer to have the oil changed at 5K mi. as well as the other things I listed above.
It is not the dealer I purchased from (they're in Kansas City) and I am hoping to get decent service at least. They are part of a large automotive group that sells a # of brands and I've heard mixed reviews. The other brand they sell at the Isuzu store is Daewoo.
The service manager told me that the fuel line mod would take 4+ hours which seems like a lot so if any of you could tell me if this is consistent with what you've heard or experienced on this recall I would appreciate hearing from you.
BTW, I would have prefered to buy locally but this dealer (Fayetteville) wanted $2K more than the dealer in KCK for the same vehicle but not in the color I wanted. I even offered to pay $500 more than I paid in KCK just to buy locally and they turned my offer down!

I'll ask the dealer where I'm getting my 2nd recall done today how long it should take, they could just be scheduling you for that long and not actually taking that long.

#4 of 271 Extended third party warranty, here in Canada for a '99 Rodeo?
Dec 21, 2000 (1:35 pm)
Do you know of any extended warranty, here in Canada that will cover after market parts on my truck? E.g. shocks, torsion bar, whatever...
Someone from the States was saying that he got them from WarrantyGold.Com and maybe they sell internationally as well?
#5 of 271 Sorry for posting in the wrong area!

I know my post should have been in "Maintenence...and I could have sworn that's where I put it. Guess I'll have to be more careful...LOL!
#6 of 271 Trooper prices
Dec 28, 2000 (8:09 am)
Saw and 2000 LS advertised for $23,999 yesterday...what a great deal!
#7 of 271 sdc2: 4WD or 2WD?
Dec 28, 2000 (10:22 am)
It seems weird that we have to specify now that Troopers are available in 2WD. Either way, a great value on an LS Trooper-- very nicely equipped vehicle for 24 grand. People just don't know about the Trooper and all it offers...
#8 of 271 2WD or 4WD?
Dec 28, 2000 (11:51 am)
That's a good question...I didn't think to look. It did list heated seats and all that crap, but did not mention a moonroof. The ad said it was $7,6XX off of MSRP - does that help?
#9 of 271 Few options on LS
Dec 28, 2000 (12:32 pm)
Moonroof and 4wd being the only 2 major options on an LS. So I'd venture to guess a 2wd w/o moonroof.
#10 of 271 2nd fuel line recall took 90 min
Dec 28, 2000 (8:58 pm)
The morning my 2nd recall for the fuel line was due to be fixed, I got a call - my daughter was in labor! She lives 4 hours away. I was a bit nervous about the whole thing (both the safety recall and the impending birth of our first grandchild!) so I went to the dealer first thing in the morning (ok, I know this isn't too rational and my priorities were a bit mixed up - what can I say? I was overwhelmed!) and told him my reason for being in such a hurry to get the job over and done with! He put 2 technicians on the job and they were done in 90 minutes - I thought that was really nice of them - and I left from there to drive the 4 hrs to the hospital (I'm in Baltimore, my daughter is in NY)! BTW - it's a boy! ; ) Needless to say, I will respond to Isuzu's dealer survey with positive comments this time around!
