RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.
