Isuzu, Honda Recall SUVs Over Rust

isuzu honda Isuzu, Honda Recall SUVs Over RustCorrosion concerns have prompted a big SUV recall.  The recall affects about 101,000 sport utility vehicles made by Isuzu, either under their own brand name, Rodeo, or built as Honda Passports.

The issue is excessive rust problems affecting the rear suspension in the 1998-2002 models.

It also covers some 2002 Isuzu Axiom models

The company says the vehicles have to have been purchased or currebtly registered in what the company is calling the 21 “Salt Belt” states, including Michigan.

The recall also covers Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa and Missouri, as well as Washingon D.C.

Isuzu will provide a free remedy for vehicles 10 years old or less. In addition, Isuzu will offer a free remedy for older vehicles, provided that such vehicles are presented to an Isuzu service facility or a Honda dealer, as applicable, within one year.
Regulators are getting more sensitive about salt-related complaints. WWJ AutoBeat Reports Jeff Gilbert says that’s why Ford recently recalled some older Windstar Mini Vans.
