1999 Isuzu Amigo Problems
On some models, the right motor mount cover can hit the chassis and cause a vibration at idle. Replacing the motor mount will repair this issue.
Rear axle seal leaks can be cause by a plugged rear differential vent. Replacing the leaking seal and clearing out the vent will fix this problem.
Chattering when cornering can occur when the limited slip differential fluid breaks down. Replacing the fluid will repair this issue.
The fuel level sensor may fail resulting in erratic fuel gauge operation and illumination of the Check Engine Light. Replacement of the fuel sender assembly is recommended to correct this concern. A powertrain control module (PCM) software update may be necessary for the updated fuel level sensor to read correctly.

RepairPal Expert Overview:
The affected vehicles may experience excessive corrosion in the area of the forward mounting bracket for the left and right rear suspension lower link. The lower link bracket can become detached from the frame, which can affect vehicle handling and increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the affected area. If little or nor corrosion is found, the area will be treated with an anti-corrosive compound. For vehicles in which corrosion has damaged the rear suspension lower link bracket, a reinforcement bracket will be installed. In the rare event the corrosion is so severe that the reinforcement bracket remedy would not be appropriate, Isuzu will offer to repurchase the vehicle for an amount based on the Kelly Blue Book "private party price." All inspections and remedies will be provided free of charge for vehicles that are ten years old or less. For vehicles older than ten years, Isuzu will offer a free remedy, but only if the vehicle is presented to an Isuzu dealer within 12 months of when owner notifications were issued.

1999 Isuzu Amigo Reviews
Bought this Isuzu (my 3rd) new from the dealer in 2000. It was the last of the Amigo badged, 2-door Rodeos. It came with 6 cyl. engine (lots of torque), a trans-cooler and heavy-duty draw-tite hitch (hard top model). I towed trailers and boats with nary-a-problem except for stopping. The brakes were never great for stopping short especially loaded with camping gear. After 10 years and two teenagers, the Amigo looks and runs great. The engine still has lots of torque and repairs have been the usual stuff. A few weather-strip leaks on doors (but never any leaks on the dual sun roofs). AC & Heating could be better but that was not a key feature needed for this fun-to-drive vehicle.
