Brakes - while applying the brakes at high or low speeds there is a terrible vibration and grinding sound from the vehicle. It feels as if I am sliding on loose gravel and the vehicle does not stop properly. I have taken the vehicle to the dealership and they claim to be unable to duplicate the problem. I have asked about other complaints about this or if there has been a recall and the answer was no. I can say that I am not happy with the quality or performance of this Isuzu product.

Check engine light comes on and then the truck goes into power down mode. We had it towed and they found nothing because the computer did not set a code. It happened again and again and again. When you let the truck cool down the light goes off. They never find anything.
