The woman you saw on the TV station Channel 5 is a member of the Facebook web page Recall Isuzu Rodeo Honda Passport Frame Rust. If you to there, you will also get help. And photos, I just uploaded a bunch of photos of my frame, as it is totally removed from my Honda Passport. My husband is in the process of doing a frame swap. I personally know the woman, because I too have been interviewed for a TV investigational program on my Honda Passport. But, if you take the time and go through the previous posts here on this forum, you will get all the info you need how to submit your claims. When you contact Isuzu and they tell you that you are the first to have this problem/complaint, just know that's not true. Because they will tell you that. I personally posted the letter on this great web site from Derek Rinehardt, who is the federal investigator for all of us. Just follow the instructions and get yourself included with us. Good luck.

And when they mentioned Kentucky and there was a woman in the blue shirt by her vehicle, that was me. My story will air within the next week.

I have a 2001 rodeo same problems as everyone else. Talked to Isuzu today and they told me that they were aware of the problem as well, and gave me a Case Number. I Just Put 842.00 in my front end at the garage, just to find out that the problem was the frame at my Back drivers side tire is totally rusted into.
#183 of 436 Getting the word out on Frame Rust

I started to look at the Craigs List and Ebay listings on Honda Passports and Isuzu Rodeo. I ask the seller one question "What is the frame condition just in front of the rear wheel where the trailing arm connects to frame and just above the wheel at coil spring and shock mount?" Copy and paste. When they respond if they do, You can send them the info for filing a complaint. I'm just looking for a good frame to put my good body on.

I own a 2001 Isuzu Rodeo LS with the same problems!!! I was driving mine to work when I heard a horrible noise and had a hard time steering the vehicle to keep it on the road. I thought I had a flat tire. The rear of the car was sitting/rubbing on the rear tires. The car was non drivable. (Thank goodness I wasn't on the Interstate going 65ml/hr--who knows what would of happened). My husband who is a mechanic took a look under the car and the frame was broken/rusted completely through at the wheel stabiizer bar. I called Isuzu and they gave me a case number (June 2008), they told me they had no other complaints of frame breakage and there was nothing they could do for me. VERY FRUSTRATING!!!!!
I had the frame welded because it wasn't worth anything the way it was, and I couldn't in good faith sell or trade the vehicle knowing it had a broken frame. The undercarriage of the car continues to have severe corrosion, I'm afraid to drive it very far, I use it minimally, which is a real inconvience, my husband and I share a vehicle. Isuzu needs to fix this and do something for the consumer!!!!!

I have heard a lot about this over the last 5 years or so and this problem seems to be common in the newer models (1998 & Up). I do have and drive a 1992 Rodeo 4x4 V6 LS and when I first heard about this I was greatly concerned & had a look under mine in 2005. Ny frame was in excellent condition w/no corrosion to this day (I just had to replace Driveshaft Carrier Bearing & frame is OK). I think though the newer models that have this problem have a different type of rear suspension than my 92 though.
I wish you the best of luck with Isuzu.
Does anyone know if the A/C in my 1992 has the old R12 or the newer R13?
Thanks for reading and again, best of luck.
