2001 Isuzu Rodeo SUSPENSION:REAR NHTSA Campaign #10V436000
Summary: Isuzu is recalling certain model year 1998-2002 Isuzu Rodeo and model year 2002 Isuzu axiom vehicles, and Honda is recalling certain 1998-2002 Honda passport vehicles, that were originally sold, or are currently registered, in the states of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, the District of Columbia, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, and Kentucky. Vehicles that have experienced sustained exposure to highly corrosive materials used in some jurisdictions for road deicing purposes may experience excessive corrosion in the vicinity of the forward mounting point bracket for the left or right rear suspension lower link prior to the time that such corrosion would normally be expected.
Consequence: Excessive corrosion may result in the left or right rear suspension lower link bracket becoming detached from the frame, which can affect vehicle handling and potentially cause a crash.
Actions: Dealers will inspect the rear suspension lower link bracket area. For vehicles in which little or no corrosion is found, the area will be treated with an anti-corrosive compound. For vehicles in which corrosion has damaged the rear suspension lower link bracket and affected its connection to the vehicle frame, a reinforcement bracket will be installed. In the rare event the corrosion is so severe that the reinforcement bracket remedy would not be appropriate, a repurchase offer will be extended to the vehicle's owner. All inspections and remedies will be provided free of charge for vehicles that are 10 years old or less. For vehicles older than 10 years, Isuzu will offer a free remedy, but only if the vehicle is presented to an Isuzu service facility, or Honda dealer (as applicable), dealer within 12 months of when owner notifications were issued. The safety recall began on December 10, 2010. Isuzu owners may contact Isuzu at 1-800-255-6727. Honda owners may contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.

2001 Isuzu Rodeo AIR BAGS:FRONTAL NHTSA Campaign #02V213000
Summary: On certain sport utility vehicles, the passenger-side air bag inflator modules were manufactured and shipped without a necessary component known as a check valve pin.
Consequence: In the event of a crash, the air bag will not inflate properly or sufficiently resulting in an increased risk of injury to the seat occupant.
Actions: Dealers will replace the passenger side air bag. Owner notification is expected to begin during August or September 2002. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Isuzu at 1-800-643-4070.

2001 Isuzu Rodeo AIR BAGS:FRONTAL NHTSA Campaign #01V055000
Summary: Vehicle description: Certain sport utility vehicles were built with the inflators in the passenger side air bag modules having the wrong amount of generant.
Consequence: In the event of a crash that would trigger a passenger air bag deployment, too much generant can cause the inflator module to explode. If the air bag module explodes, metal and plastic debris could cause severe injury to vehicle occupants.
Actions: Dealers will replace the passenger side air bag unit. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #01V055000 »
