Isuzu Motors Has Recalled the 1996-1997 Isuzu Hombre

(SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has released the following information.

Isuzu Motors America, Inc.

Models: Isuzu Hombre Years: 1996-1997

Number Potentially Involved: 14,860

Dates of Manufacture: June 1996 – August 1997

Defect: On certain pickup trucks, the windshield wiper motor may fail due to cracked solder joints on the controller circuit board. The windshield wipers could work intermittently or not at all. If this were to occur during bad weather, driver visibility would be reduced, which could result in a crash.

Remedy: Dealers will replace the wiper motor circuit board and cover. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during July 2003. Owners may contact Isuzu at 1-800-255-6727.

[NHTSA Recall No. 03V210].
