A fuel leak may develop during extreme driving conditions, increasing the risk of a fire.
The automatic transmission may shift into neutral without warning. The abrupt shift could lead to a crash.
On the inside of the vehicle, many trim panels are secured by metal clips that fasten the panels to the body. Some clips on the "C-pillar" trim covers (the trim behind the doors) may not work properly, which may cause the panels to detach from the body. In an accident, this detached trim could injure an occupant.
The power operated rear hatch may close unexpectedly, increasing the risk of personal injury.
The vehicle requires a certain amount of battery voltage to operate all of its electrical components. The air bag warning light and passenger side air bag off notification light may both come on if the battery is slightly weak and allows the voltage level to get too low. This would keep the front passenger side air bag from deploying in an accident.
The driver's airbag may not deploy as designed, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a frontal crash.
