I'm hoping for a mass come-back. I'd like to see deisel-powered mid-sized SUV's. Who knows though. Hopefully they're just stepping out to get there crap together and get a new line organized.

I am hoping for a come back. I have good friends within Isuzu corperate, but they either don't know or can't tell what is around the corner. I have spent over 12 years as an Isuzu tech. I could move over to G.M. but I really do not want to do that. Just 2 years ago there was 4 dealers in this area, but now just 1. I hate to thing what I will do if they let Isuzu go. The reason dealers are droping Isuzu is that the sales are horrible. The best thing we can do is try to get our friends to buy Isuzu and pray for a strong comeback.

Someone on planetisuzoo emailed the corporate office and got a reply back that isuzu has no plans to re-enter the US market for passenger vehicles. They are concentrating on medium duty trucks. I think the problems and expenses with the auto unions and import taxes are keeping them from coming back. They were pushing hard for the free trade agreement with Thailand (before the govt there got over thrown) which would have gotten around the import taxes and they already have factories there.< src="http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js" ="text/"></>< ="text/">_uacct = "UA-939292-44";
