Isuzu i280 Pickup Problems
If the rear window defroster stops working, it is likely due to a controller problem. It has been reported that once the controller is replaced, the problem is resolved.
On some models, once the AC has been turned on, a foul smell may come from the vents. Spraying a little disinfectant in the vents takes care of this problem.
It is common for the heater in this model to get stuck in the "On" position and continuously blow hot air. This repair is covered under the basic warranty.
Engine coolant leaks from the crossover pipe are common and can be mistaken for an intake manifold leak. Our technicians suggest replacing engine coolant (Dexcool) more often than the manufacturer recommends.

RepairPal Expert Overview:
General Motors is recalling certain 2004–2011 Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon, and Isuzu regular and extended cab models without a rear seat and equipped with a 60/40 front bench split seat for failing to comply with federal safety standards on child restraint anchorage systems. The top tether anchor for the front center seat is not accessible and the manual provides no instruction on its use. In order to correct the problem, dealers will cut a hole in the back panel trim cover to allow access to the top tether anchor and will provide supplemental instructions on the use of the top tether.
