Isuzu Stops Distributing U.S New Passenger Vehicles

February 01, 2008

Effective Jan. 31, 2009, Isuzu Motors America, Inc. will discontinue distributing new Isuzu passenger vehicles in North America. The discontinuation of passenger vehicles results from the prospective cessation of production by General Motors Corporation of the Ascender SUV and the i-290 and i-370 pickup trucks.

“It has always been our intention to remain in the U.S. market,” said Terry Maloney, president and COO. “However, we were unable to secure any commercially viable replacements for these vehicles.”

Although Isuzu will cease supplying passenger vehicles in North America, it will continue to stand behind its customers and dealers here for years to come. Specifically, Isuzu will continue to honor all product warranties and roadside assistance programs and will maintain its owner-relations call center. In addition, to assure long-term service to its customers, Isuzu will be offering all current, U.S. Isuzu vehicle dealers the opportunity to continue on as service dealerships for Isuzu.
