Description of Recall:
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.
Action Need To Fix It:
Dealers will install a new, reinforced fuel hose assembly. Note: The fuel leakage issue in this recall campaign is not the same as the one addressed in Isuzu's previous campaign 00V-253. 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 1-800-643-7070, ext. 343.
