Isuzu has announced a recall which will affect the Rodeo, the Axiom and the Rodeo Sport in the United States, because of a problem with the corrosion.
According to the car manufacturer, certain units from the 2003-2004 Rodeo and Axiom vehicles, along with the 2003 Rodeo Sport, will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get some problems with the corrosion fixed, which may allow the bracket to detach from the from, affecting the model’s handling and possibly increasing the risk of a crash and injury.
Owners of the above mentioned models will be soon notified by Isuzu and the company’s dealers will inspect the rear suspension lower link bracket area and if little or no corrosion is found, the area will be treated with anti-corrosive compound, but on the vehicles in which corrosion has damaged the rear suspension lower link bracket, a reinforcement bracket will be installed. All repairs will be made free of charge for vehicles older than 10 years. The recall is said to begin in mid-December, 2013. For more details on the subject, owners of the vehicles mentioned above can contact Isuzu at 1-800-255-6727 or the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236.
