Isuzu Motors Has Recalled the 1996-1997 Isuzu Hombre
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has released the
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].
