    Recalls: GM SUV window switch recall urges owners to park vehicles outside
    1407432600

    It's not unusual for there to be a lag between an automaker announcing a recall and the official documentation showing up on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website. So it's no surprise that a recent GM campaign took about a month to appear in its official capacity. However, there appears to be some big differences between the two ...

    1385676000

    Here's a brand we haven't written about in some time. Isuzu is recalling 8,816 2003 Rodeo Sports and 2003 to 2004 Rodeo and Axiom models that are registered in just about any state that uses salt on winter roads. That means Isuzu owners in states as far east as Maine, as far south as Kentucky and as far west as Minnesota will need to report in with their ...

    Official: Isuzu MU-X SUV is a Chevy Trailblazer in drag [w/videos]
    1383509700

    Back before SUVs and crossovers came to dominate the market, the Chevy Blazer was king. In fact the nameplate was so iconic that Chevy spun it off into several different sizes, with the compact S-10 Blazer (also known as, among many other things, the GMC Jimmy) expanding to the K5 Blazer (later rebadged as the Tahoe), and in between, the mid-size ...

    Official: GM, Isuzu planning new truck development

    General Motors and Isuzu had a long and drawn-out break up that resulted in the loss of Isuzu passenger cars in the US, as well as heavy-duty truck operations for GM. Now it appears that both automakers are in talks to produce pickup trucks once again, after signing a memorandum of understanding for a new joint venture. There are really no details to go ...

    Here's a blast from the past: The lovable Isuzu Amigo is being recalled. That's right, despite Isuzu having entirely departed the U.S. market two-and-a-half years ago, the company is still responsible for warranty and recall service on its vehicles.

    General Motors initially wanted to buy one-third of Isuzu Motors Ltd, which would give it the right to veto board decisions, but has scaled back how much of the Japanese company it might try to buy, according to a new Reuters report.

    General Motors and Isuzu were partners for decades before parting ways in 2006.

    Looks like Volkswagen and General Motors can breathe a corporate sigh of relief.

    Mr. Peanut can't be relegated to just any automobile. After all, as the face of Nabisco's Planters division and as one of the most beloved (though just a wee bit creepy, if we're being honest) mascots in American history, Sir Nut needs a ride suitable of his stature. And, since he's apparently over 12 feet tall and carries a six-foot-long cane, we're ...
