Passport 6-cyl

I purchased a 2002 Honda Passport used, I recently heard a noise under the car and when checked part of the frame was broken. I looked online and found a recall, never notified about it. I called a dealer and waited 5 days and called them again and they set up an appointment for me. I took the vehicle in and was told that it is unsafe to drive and they will not release it to me. They said that is not the tracking link that is the problem, it is the frame. This vehicle should be recalled for the frame rotting not just the tracking links. Honda is very unprofessional and this is a serious problem.

Honda Motors corporation recently sent us a recall notice for suspension brackets that needed to be reinforced because of severe corrosion to the areas affected. They reinforced the brackets with a bolt kit on both the left and right hand sides. However, when we took the vehicle to our maintenance mechanic who does all of our work on our vehicles, he informed me that there was still safety issues with considerable corrosion to the suspension frames and surrounding areas. I took pictures and am forwarding them to Honda Motors corporation in torrence, California where the recall was issued. Also pictures sent to the administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in Washington, DC. I am concerned that if the suspension system collapses, it could cause rupture of the gas tank or cut the brake line system altogether. Be advised that there was no accident/incident to report at this time. However, I feel that this vehicle is unsafe to drive with my grandchildren or any one for that matter. I don't know how this informational system works, but if you could expedite anything that would be helpful to remedy this safety matter it would be highly appreciated. Thank you.
