Isuzu hits the recall list

It seems that a recent wave of recalls concerning some issues with the excessive frame rust problem that affected lots of vehicles in the US hasn’t slipped in getting to those that feature an Isuzu badge on the back.

The NHTSA announcement comes as a bit of a surprise to the US population as Isuzu and the dealers and the company packed up and left business in the States by the end of 2008.

After the Toyota Tundra hit the recall black book, the Ford Windstar went under investigation the Isuzu and Honda products didn’t get left far behind.

This means that if you own a Rodeo built between 1998 and 2002 or an Axiom with 2002 model year or even the 1998-2002 Honda Passport (which is not much other than a differently badged Rodeo).

This is all related to some issues with areas where highly corrosive materials like road salt are used to clear roads. All of these problems started when Toyota (it’s beginning to be a joke now) got one of their recalls.

According to the NHTSA, owners of the affected vehicles should head on over to the nearest dealers and see if their chassis are seriously affected. Only problem I can think of is that Isuzu isn’t that much around any more… those few services left in business are going to have quite a handful.
