If not for all of us "whining babies" who have fought Honda and Isuzu for years, written letters, posted on the internet, shared info, posted forms for others to copy and fill out, and all that we have done so that non-whining babies like you could recoup your losses on these vehicles, where would you be today in regards to your vehicle? And then you, who probably has sat on your butt and done nothing except complain, post a comment like that? Who do you think is responsible for the fact that you got more than you paid for, for your vehicle? US. Who do you think pushed for the recall on these vehicles? US. So, punkguy1978, I am glad that was your last post. Take their money and run with your tail between your little legs. Let the rest of us continue to push forward for a full recall on the frame. You got your money, no need to post here ever again. Yes, I bought mine Honda new, in 1998, paid $28,000, thinking that I was buying a Honda, in good faith. Didn't find out until later it was an Isuzu. That was info the Honda dealership didn't bother to share with us. I have been fighting with Honda since 2009. I have spent hours on the phone with Honda, local dealers, have been on TV about this, written to the A.G., BBB, NHTSA, spoke to Derek Reinhardt, and I posted the letter from Derek Reinhardt which was instrumental in many people being able to be included in the recall. So don't call me a whiny baby. I worked hard for everyone who owns one of these vehicles, even if you don't appreciate my efforts, you still got a check because of what I and many others have done for YOU. If not for us, you would be without a car and without a check. Instead of posting a ridiculous message like you did, you should be showing a bit of gratitude for what we have done for you. So, cash your check and perhaps do your homework before you buy your next vehicle. After all, when you bought your Rodeo 1 year ago, we were YEARS into the fight.
#332 of 436 The worse part of it all

The worse part of it all is that people find these posts after their vehicle fails. Then they start looking around on the internet and stumble across Edmunds and other sites. If only people who are still driving these dangerous vehicles could be made aware before their vehicle fails....because sooner or later, there are going to be fatalities. Which also tells me that many people haven't been included in the recall, for whatever reason, so they are driving these vehicles with rusted out frames, completely unaware of the danger they and their families and other drivers are facing. When my Passport failed 2 years ago, and I started looking on the internet, I found posts that were 3-4 years old about the frame rust. But I, like everyone else, had no reason to look for this problem until it affected me. Had I know years earlier, who knows what we could have done in time to prevent what eventually happened.
And that is the worse part of all.

Haven't had an opportunity to get my rodeo inspected yet but had to repair frame for inspection and then replace bracket a few months later. Then I got the recall. I sent copies of invoices and my cancelled checks for reimbursement. Got a letter today saying that they have no proof that the repairs that I did were part of the recall. Like I am going to replace a rusted out frame and a bracket that broke in half for no reason.Have an appointment next week for inspection, but I think that Isuzu is going to give me the run around. Has anyone else received money for repairs that they did before the recall?

Yes, we had the work done two years ago and we did send it all to Isuzu and they called and we had to go to through two inspections and then a certification that the inspection met the criteria and I was very doubtful and called and waited on hold many times....and we got our $1500. check for the work we paid for... very happy - sold the darn car and now we are FREE of Isuzu! So hang in there and keep on them and go to the inspection...we had documented everything - pictures before the repair, pictures after the repair...the Isuzu dealership in NH said we had covered more than all our basis - and we had done a better job on our "fix" than the job they would have done...so glad we went this way. Just document, and call - send it all certified mail - always have names.....over do on the details...

First off,I formerly sold these at 2 dealerships,and used to love these trucks,and so did the wife.Our 99 got recalled,was found to be stage 5. It sat at the dealer for between 3-4 weeks.Today I got the call.They asked for a copy of the buyers order ,since we bought it from a used lot back in November.I faxed it to them.20 minutes later they called and said they would pay us what we paid for it,which was $1500.I also put $800 in it upon purchasing it to weld 1 side ,4 tires,battery,etc. to get it ready for winter for my wife.They claimed they only refunded what it showed I paid,Other stuff meant nothing,accorfing to them...So I asked them ,what if I bought the twin to it at Furey Jeep in Malvern,Ohio,that was in the paper for $6999?...Say I got it for $5k...would I get all my $5k back?..He said he couldnt answer that.He also stated that the retail value of a successful recall installation is $1500,and that they have the choice to fix it,or when not applicable,then 2 pay $1500.KBB fair value is $2650.and good is$3225. The fact that I paid $1500 shouldnt matter,I think...isnt based on the current value?...The sure arent paying people what they paid for it if purchased at a retail new car franchise are they? Thanks.

By the way,the dealer,Ganley,was great.TV5 in Cleveland did a story on this last Friday,and showed all the Rodeos lined up,mine included waiting to be crushed.The dealer and the service mgr was fine...it is getting a fair shake from Isuzu that is a problem.

Signed it,and emailed Derek about this situation..This is just morally and probably illegal that I suzu is lowballing people as to the value of the vehicles.It is not our fault their frames and suspension pieces are falling apart!
