Model Highlights

The 2007 Isuzu Ascender is essentially a Chevy TrailBlazer, though the Ascender's warranty is different and it is only available with a 4.2L in-line six-cylinder engine that makes 291 horsepower. This engine is also rated at 275 lb-ft of torque and provides pretty good pulling power. A four-speed automatic transmission is standard equipment.

You get to choose between rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive in this five-seat SUV. There are also two levels of trim available. The Ascender S starts at $25,959 and includes a number of nice safety items like traction control, electronic stability control, daytime running lights, anti-lock brakes, and automatic headlights. Also included are power windows, mirrors and door locks, and dual-zone climate control. The Ascender is one of the few vehicles that still comes with a full-size spare as standard equipment instead of it being an option.

Move up to the Ascender LS and you get a six-disc CD changer, heated outside mirrors, a leather covered steering wheel, a limited slip differential, a power sunroof, power seats, and a roof rack. There is also a preferred equipment package that adds an alarm, cruise control, a cargo cover, floor mats, a universal garage door opener, and vanity mirrors. Side curtain air bags are available, as is a Luxury Package that includes various exterior treatments, a power passenger seat, heated front seats, a Bose speaker system, adjustable pedals, and memory features.

Inside the Ascender is a fairly modern interior. The front seats are comfortable thanks to adjustable lumbar support for both the driver and front passenger. The rear seat folds, increasing available cargo space from 43.7 to 80.1 cubic feet. If you need to tow a trailer to carry more of your belongings, you'll be happy to know the Ascender can pull more than 5,200 pounds.

Model News

Isuzu has dropped the seven-passenger, longer wheelbase version of the Ascender for 2007, as well as its optional V8 engine. While most engines have received a lower number for horsepower output in 2007, due to the new way of measuring with all normal accessories, the Ascender's engine output is higher. The 4.2L in-line six-cylinder moves up by 16 horsepower from 275 to 291.

Value Writeup

The 2007 Isuzu Ascender is a Chevrolet TrailBlazer/GMC Envoy wearing the Isuzu three-bar grill, and therefore offers a similar level of toughness and reliability. Like its brethren, it offers an in-line six-cylinder engine that is fairly torquey at 275 lb-ft of torque. The warranty coverage on the Ascender is better than most of its competitors.

Potential Number of Units Affected

General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2005-2007 SAAB 9-7x; 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer EXT and GMC Envoy XL; and 2006-2007 Chevrolet Trailblazer, GMC Envoy, Buick Rainier and Isuzu Ascender vehicles. Fluid may enter the driver's door master power window switch module, causing corrosion that could result in a short in the circuit board. A short may cause the power door lock and power window switches to function intermittently or become inoperative. The short may also cause overheating, which could melt components of the door module, producing odor, smoke, or a fire.

A short in the circuit board could lead to a fire, increasing the risk of personal injury. A fire could occur even while the vehicle is not in use. As a precaution, owners are advised to park outside until the remedy has been made.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the part number on the door module, and install a new door module if necessary, free of charge. Parts for the remedy are not currently available. GM will send an interim letter to owners in late August 2014. A second owner letter will be mailed when parts are available. Owners may contact GM customer service at 1-800-521-7300 (Buick), 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet), 1-800-462-8782 (GMC), 1-800-955-9007 (SAAB), and 1-800-255-6727 (Isuzu). GM's number for this recall is 14309. NOTE: This recall provides a new remedy for all vehicles covered by recall 13V-248. Vehicles whose modules were modified but not replaced as part of the previous recall remedy must have their vehicles remedied again under this campaign.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
