I'm late to the party here - I cosigned on a 2001 Rodeo Sport S for my daughter last year. We still owe $4,500 on the car, but just yesterday experienced the rusting frame issue. We're told by Isuzu that this particular model (the 2-door) isn't covered by the recall even though it's the IDENTICAL issue described in the recall description! We filed a complaint with the NHTSA and with our ... Read More
I received my recall last week in the mail for the 2001 Rodeo Sport Anniversary Edition. I call the 800 at Isuzu and the woman told me exactly what I need to do and gave me the number to the local dealership here in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area, which I called them. I made my appointment for them to look at my SUV two days later on Thursday December 23, ... Read More

I have a '00 Trooper. Just got an estimate from the local Isuzu/Chevy dealer on timing belt and water pump. They want $800 for the package. I'm looking at other options now...that is a little bit high for me.

I have a 2001 Rodeo sport. I had what sounds like a similar problem. It would lerch while shifting or while stopping. I had to have mode switch replaced it's under the dash, it communicates between the indicator on the dash and the gear on the floor board. I'm not sure if yours is set up this way, but it is a lot cheaper than a new transmission.
Good morning everyone. I am the happy owner of a 2001 Isuzu Rodeo Sport. Bought new in 2000 it now has about 107,000 miles. It still runs strong (due for tune up and radiator flush tho). What is the story on the timing belts for this model? The manual says every 60,000 miles for change out. Can somebody please explain what non-interference means in regards to the timing belt ? Thanx ... Read More
