To whom it may concern, I was directed by the U.S. department of transportation to inform a safe guard rep to complete a safety investigation of my 1998 Isuzu Rodeo ls frame rusting out. The part of the truck's frame that rusted out is the part that holds the control arm of the rear driver's side wheel; which almost caused a major accident on the highway. As of right now I am unable to drive the vehicle and I would like to know how is this matter going to get resolved? curtis mighty cc: Charles shimkus (attorney)

1998 Isuzu Rodeo. Problem rotted frame which caused the torque bar to rot off the frame. I am lucky to be alive. I was going slow enough that I was able to handle the car. When this bar breaks off the car it causes the rearend of the car to start swaying. The car is now unable to be driven so I am filing this complaint to find out what I should do with this car. I honestly believe that some sort of buyback should be done on these vehicles to get them off the road before someone gets killed driving one. Should I keep the car until something is done or do I total it and sell it to a junk yard. Thank you

The contact owns a 1998 Isuzu Rodeo. The contact stated that when driving over speed bumps he heard a loud noise underneath the vehicle. While driving above 55 mph, the rear end of the vehicle began moving rapidly from side to side. When the failure occurred, the risk of a vehicle crash increased. A local mechanic concluded that the right portion of the frame was corroded. No repairs have been made. The current and failure mileages were 102000.
