Isuzu Pick Ups in October 2002 Recall

Isuzu Motors Limited
Models:     Isuzu TF           Years:     1994-1995
Number Potentially Involved:  9,715
Dates of Manufacture:  April – September 1994
Defect:  On certain pickup trucks made in Fujisawa, Japan, the latch plate used in the seat belt buckle was not manufactured according to design dimensions. If the seat belt tongue is inserted slowly at an angle into the buckle, there is a possibility of partial engagement. This condition can cause the seat belt tongue to come out of the buckle in the event of a collision or hard braking of the vehicle, increasing the risk of personal injury to an occupant of the seat.
Remedy:   Dealers will inspect the buckle and, if necessary, replace the buckle assembly with a new buckle. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during mid-December 2002. Owners should contact Isuzu at 1-800-643-4070.
