Isuzu Motors Ltd. is a Japanese car manufacturing company based in Tokyo. Isuzu was founded in 1937 and currently, in addition to road cars, produces heavy trucks and commercial vehicles. Isuzu is currently known all over the world as a truck manufacturing company, as a slump in sales in the late 1990s caused Isuzu to discontinue all sedans and compact cars in the United States, most of Africa, Asia and Europe. The latest news involving Isuzu has been the announcement to discontinue sales in the United States beginning in early 2010. Although Isuzu will no longer sell vehicles in the US, it will continue to produce parts for service and accessories.
During the last few years Isuzu has suffered a huge drop in sales in the US, but at the same time has produced a few quality SUVs. The Isuzu Ascender was introduced in 2003 and is a re-amped version of the GMC Envoy. It replaced Isuzu's previous big seller, the entry level-sized Trooper. The Ascender began as a seven passenger vehicle but later slimmed down to five passenger. Available in either rear wheel drive or four wheel drive, the Ascender is powered with a 4.2 liter engine. Consumer reviews of the Ascender have been mixed as many claim it offers sloppy handling while others defend it by describing it as "A comfortable ride with decent power." (Edmunds.com)
To get the best rate on Isuzu car insurance, it's best to know what factors determine how much you are going to pay on your premium. Here are some tips to save you money on your Isuzu auto insurance. First of all, keep your credit in good shape. A growing number of car insurance companies are using credit scores as a determining factor. So in order to pay a lower premium, it is best to keep your credit score high and resolve or delete any derogatory trade lines on your consumer credit report. Another helpful tip is to avoid any lapses in coverage. If you are switching companies or if you get behind on premiums with your current company, remember that too long of a gap without car insurance will lead to higher premiums in the future. One final tip to get the best possible rate on your Isuzu insurance is to avoid unnecessary coverage. Make sure you are only paying for what you actually need and set your coverage to the exact value of your vehicle.
