    out of the US market or have a significantly reduced dealer network as time marches on, and GMC/Chevy dealers will NOT honor your Isuzu Ascendor warranty, so that is something to take into account.

    Hey Mike (paisan)--I'm a paisana too.

    Someone has to honor the warranty if they're bought out. Anyway, I didn't find anything to tell me differently, so I'm assuming the Ascender takes regular gasoline?

    You think I got a deal by the way??

    Ciao,

    Not sure if it's a good deal but an SUV for 23K isn't bad.

    The problem is not if they get bought out, the problem is that the dealerships are dropping like flies, right now I believe there are 380 or so dealers nationwide, last year there was 450, so until someone buys them that would honor the warranty, they will continue to dwindle down to nothing as far as service, once the warranty is up, of course you can bring it anywhere to get it fixed (GMC/Chevy dealers, local mechanics).

    Ciao Paisana!

    I won't do that again, Steve. Sorry if I caused any problems. The reason I refreshed was to see if a response came in. I will check recent messages instead.

    No biggie, just one of those bugs that can't be easily swatted.

    Thanks!

    Yes, the gas IS regular.

    I took this car home last night. So far I really love it. If anyone has driven the GMC Envoy and this Ascender, don't you think the Ascender has a little more steering control and pick-up?

    Have a good day.

  • My Ascender has been great so far, no problems yet (KOW) !! Everything works just like it did when we drove her home from the dealership.

    What kind of vibration is it and what speeds does it occur at. Only 65 or other speeds. Does it go in and out or is it constant. Does your vehicle come with the Michelin cross-terrains? If it is a constant vibration and does not pulsate I will bet you anything it is in one or more of your tires. Driveshafts have pulsating vibrations, rear ends moan, transfer cases wont make much difference. Have them put a set of brand new balanced cross-terrains from a new vehicle and drive it. A hose clamp will only clamp down so tight, probably working itself loose over time spinning at 2500-3000 RPM's. I can't believe they would put one on instead of properly balancing your driveshaft or giving you a new one, what's their fix for a bad hose...duct tape? Sent you an e-mail.

    it's a 2200 rpm vibration, definatly the drive shaft. Isuzu doesnt know why its vibrating.A field engineer came and worked on it twice, He balanced the driveshaft to the old output shaft, Since the transmission blew up last week and they put a new transmission in, its vibrating agian.

    I have above mentioned vehicel. I experience very poor throttle response, to the point of feeling like the vehicle is going to stall upon attempt to accelerate quickly from a stop. Dealer says they can't find anything wrong. Almost seems like it isn't getting enough fuel initially upon acceleration through compiuter controlled fuel delivery system. Anyone else experience this problem and have a solution or idea?
  • I have paint peeling on my grill. I see small blisters in the area where it is not peeling. The isuzu zone rep said the peeling is due to stone chips. I asked him what caused the blisters. NO answer. He just said it was not a covered item. Tis is a 2004 Ascender. I have been in Quality Assurance for the past 10 years and part of my job is paint adhesion. This problem was caused by a bad bonding agent in the paint or not cleaning the part after it was extracted from the mold. This is a workmanship issue.
    Who do I call above the zone manager. He does not know what he is talking about. Any names or addresses.
  • Probably all you can do is call or write Isuzu directly?
