If the studs break, the transmission may not be properly supported, preventing it from shifting correctly and increasing the risk of a crash.
During manufacturing, the stamping equipment may have created burrs on the frame crossmember that the transmission is mounted to.
These burrs may cause the transmission mounting studs to break.
Isuzu will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the vehicles and install a metal shim to prevent stress on the mounting studs, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin April 2017.
