Isuzu Recalls 2000-2001 Trooper

Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a recall affecting the 2000 and 2001 Isuzu Trooper.  The affected models were manufactured from July 1999 through August 2000.

Note: The fuel leakage issue in this recall campaign is not the same as the one addressed in Isuzu's previous campaign 00V-253.

This recall involves certain sport utility vehicles equipped with 4-wheel drive and automatic transmissions built with TOD (Torque-On-Demand). In certain high speed, frontal crashes, movement of engine compartment components can cause the potential for fuel leakage. Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source could result in a fire.

18,462 automobiles are affected by this recall.

Dealers will install a new, reinforced fuel hose assembly.

The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Nov. 27, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Isuzu at 1-800-643-4070, ext. 343.

[NHTSA Recall No. 00V376, Mfg. #00-02-S006]
