Recall Information for Isuzu Rodeo, Rodeo Sport and Axiom SUVs

Isuzu logoVehicles Affected: Approximately 8,816 2003-2004 Isuzu Rodeo, Rodeo Sport and Axiom SUVs originally sold or currently registered in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri and the District of Columbia.

The Problem: Excessive corrosion near the forward mounting point bracket for the left or right rear suspension lower link could cause the bracket to detach from the frame, impacting vehicle handling and increasing the risk of a crash. This latest action is similar to another corrosion-related Isuzu recall issued in July 2012 on 1998-2001 Amigo and 2001-2002 Rodeo Sport vehicles.

The Fix: Isuzu will begin notifying owners in mid-December and dealers will inspect the rear suspension lower link bracket area and address the problem for free in all vehicles that are 10 years old or less, or presented to the dealer within 12 months of recall notification. For vehicles with little or no corrosion, the area will be treated with an anticorrosive compound; for vehicles in which corrosion has damaged the bracket and affected its connection to the vehicle frame, a reinforcement bracket will be installed. If the corrosion is so severe that the remedy would not be sufficient, Isuzu will offer to repurchase the vehicle for an amount based on the Kelley Blue Book “Private Party” price.

What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Isuzu at 800-255-6727, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.

    Would you please have a review on Nissan’s “Juke” car? I am seeing more of these and they are so different looking and am wondering what is their reliability, etc. I know that Nissan makes good cars, but I have not seen anything re their reliability. Thank you.

      I had the Juke a few years ago, but have helped a lot of people get them and they love them. Reliability has been very good, and they get really good mileage. I think it’s a good choice.

      You can find all our dealer affiliates under the tab “Certified Dealers” here on the website, choose your city, select your dealer and they’ll take great care of you!
