Geico game me false hope. They told me they were going to go after Isuzu for the blue book value my 2000 rodeo is worth. They went to the dealership it was at and took pictures and told me there was nothing they could do because it didn't cause a collision but it just happened as i was pulling out of the parking lot. I was very disappointed and they led me to believe they were going to help me with this case. Saturday I am going to take a bus to pick up my rodeo 2 hours away and drive it hoping it doesn't break on me. So now I still owe 2300 dollars on a piece of junk but I am holding on to it in hopes that someday Isuzu takes responsibility for the terrible framework and pays us out what we deserve.

I bought the vehicle new in 2001 and had 130,000 miles on it.
Initally, I could have the repaired done or take 1500.00. I told them I would not take the $1500.00 and to go ahead and try to fix it. The dealership was unable to do the recall repair and Isuzu offered to buy the vehicle back for $4500.00 a one time offer take it or leave it. It hurt because I had no intention of buying another vehicle and that money was a drop in the bucket toward the purchase of a new one. From all the posts and complaints I have read, it would seem that Isuzu is only buying vehicles back if the recall repair cannot be done and they are not covering any other frame corrosion . I am hopeful that the NSHTA will reopen the case and an amended recall will included the entire frame, we need to get all these unsafe vehicles off the road.

Did you also hear that they are making the ones that did accept the money sign a w-9 tax form? I had several people tell me before they got their checks they had to sign this form or they get NO check. So that means whatever the offer is, you will have to file taxes on it next year. Which means we still LOSE either way we go! How is this fair? We already paid taxes on these rusted out cars! Isuzu is using this as a right off on their taxes. Good job you crooks!

I am a women who does not take NO for an answer! Whenever I spoke to the dealership or Isuzu I made sure I knew what I was talking about. I kept meticulous notes of every converstion that I had with the dealership and Isuzu. When I spoke to Isuzu I informed them that I had filed a complaint with the NSTHA and the state Attorney General's office. When Isuzu called to make me an offer, I had the Kelly Blue Book information printed out and knew exactly what my vehicle was worth. Be infomed, forceful and polite. Stand your ground!

I do know what I am talking about also , I know what the kelly blue book was on my rodoe at the time the issue happened it was 6000.00 to 6500.00
now it is 4500.00 to 5000.00 which is a year and a half later. I have been
filing complaints with everyone . I was the 22 person on the NHTSA list with the first round of complaints.

Have a question for madinmass. Not trying to be nosey, but did you actually get a check from Isuzu for the total amount or did the dealer give you private party blue book value for purchasing a car from them? Only wondering because some dealers are rolling rebates in with the buybak provided from Isuzu.

A check from Isuzu. Dealership did not even try to sell me a vehicle.
Don't think they dared!

I am posting this as my last message in this form. You are alll a bunch of whining babies. I bought my rodeo 1yr ago for 3500.00 and got a check today for 4300.00. alot of you have had your vehicles for 11 years or more and are complaining about getting blue book value. You owned these vehicles for years of course you are not gonna get retail. so best of luck if you dont act like babies you will get CURRENT book value.
