Noticed severe corrosion on the frame stiffner that crosses over the battery. Took to dealer and was informed that they could do nothing as they were no longer an Isuzu dealer. Isuzu is losing dealers everywhere. Be very leary of buying an ISUZU even

Rear drivers side running light/turn signal burnt out. Based upon my experience this is a recurring problem with GM truck wiring harnesses. Notice how many GM built trucks and SUVs have a burnt out tail light.

Low beam headlights failed. High beams and fog lights worked OK. Traced the problem via internet and discovered others experiencing same problem had been able to cure it by switching low beam and fan relays. Did this and cured problem.

Car was returned to dealer after throwing codes. Same two codes that required $1500 in repairs in October 2013. Dealer kept the car a week and told me that I had a burnt valve that would require $2700 worth of work. Engine is toast, Burnt valves at 3 & 6. Oil always changed at 3000 miles, always used branded gas. This GM built Isuzu Badged SUV has exhibited problems form early on attributable to incompetence in design and build. GM sucks,never again!

Throwing codes left and right. Car was lightly used, with ALL maintenance performed on or before scheduled. Dealer can't fix. Put a half quart of Marvel Mystery Oil in the tank and other half in the oil pan. SOB has quit throwing codes.
