No Kai- Is isuzu doing that bad. I know they are not 'killing' it, and I have seen some negative posts about dealer closings and saw one about a factory closing??? Beat stuff, but as economy, war, 9.11, might this not just be consolidation and regrouping?? I hope they don't as this is my third, 1 trooper, 1 trooper II, then the weapon/vx...and the vx unquestionably is the best thing I have seen on the market-

When showing my new VX to a friend, of course, I commented about the VX's brief run in the American market and recalled Isuzu's "near miss" when it sold the Trooper & Rodeo concepts to Honda, and almost terminated its stake in the SUV market, just as the SUV boom was settling-in.

This same friend, who's a professional art restorer and car collector, related it to his experience with artists and agents, saying, some artists do mediocre work, but do an excellent job of marketing, while some very creative people are better at making art than they are at hocking their wares.

Perhaps this is the case with Isuzu? As manifested in the VX, their corporate imagination certainly seems to "Go Farther" than their market-presence.
