About 8,816 vehicles are affected by Isuzu recall. More concretely, the following vehicles are being recalled:
2003 model year Rodeo Sport
2003-2004 model years Rodeo

Models sold or registered in some of the US states (Michigan, Maine, Missouri, Maryland, Minnesota, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, New Jersey, Vermont, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Delaware, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, Kentucky and the District of Columbia), are being recalled due to corrosion issue.
The problem is that the forward mounting point for the lower link of the rear suspension may corrode. This may increase the risk of a car crash.
The automaker will start notifying the affected owners in the middle of December. The manufacturer will offer the owners of the affected SUVs 3 types of resolution:
If the area has no rust, then the dealers will treat it with an anti-corrosion compound.
If there is some rust, the area will be fitted with a reinforcement plate
If the corrosion is severe, the manufacturer will buy the car back
