Power Seat Wiring Chafes On Seat Frame

The wiring harness to the 8-way power adjustable front seats may chafe on the seat frames, resulting in a short circuit and fire hazard. Dealers will inspect and secure the wiring harness and repair any chafed wires free of charge to resolve the concern.

Ignition Key May Be Removed Without Transmission Lever Shifted To Park

The ignition key may be able to be removed from the ignition switch without having the transmission shift lever securely in the park position. This could allow the vehicle to roll unexpectedly. Dealers will inspect and if necessary replace the key cylinder lock housing free of charge to resolve the concern.

Power Steering Assist Fails

The power steering system may fail, resulting in extra effort being required to steer the vehicle. Dealers will replace the electric belt drive rack and pinion steering gear assembly free of charge to resolve the concern.
