The driver's and/or passenger's seat may suddenly drop to its lowest position because a bolt securing the height adjuster can fall out. This unexpected movement of the driver's seat could cause a distraction, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the height adjuster bolts in both front seats to correct this concern.
The bolts fastening the steering intermediate shaft to the steering gear and the lower ball joint to the lower control arms may not be properly torqued. This could cause the components to separate, resulting in the loss of control of the vehicle. Dealers will inspect and tighten these components as necessary free of charge to resolve the problem.
eAssist is a hybrid drive system that includes an electric motor to assist the gas engine under certain driving conditions. These vehicles are being recalled because there may be an internal fault with the Generator Control Module (GCM). The module could allow the battery to discharge to the point were the vehicle could stall and/or not start. Also, a burning smell, smoke, and/or a fire could develop in the trunk. Dealers will inspect and replace the GCM to correct this concern.
Due to a software error, the parking lights do not activate when either the parking lamps or headlamps are switched on. Inadequate lighting could reduce visibility, increasing the risk of a crash.
