Known Problems

The fuel pump may fail causing the engine to stall and not restart. Our technicians recommend replacing the fuel filter every 30,000 miles to help prevent undue strain on the fuel pump.

The rubber section of an automatic transmission cooler line may develop a fluid leak . In some cases the leaking section of hose can be replaced. In others, the complete cooler line must be replaced to correct this concern.

The air conditioning compressor may become noisy or develop a refrigeration leak, requiring replacement.

The anti-lock brake system (ABS) control module may fail causing the ABS light to illuminate. Failed modules should be replaced to restore ABS operation.

Brake fluid can become dirty and may cause problems in the brake system; it should be flushed every 60,000 miles.

The trunk pull down switch may fail causing the trunk lid not to close completely. Our technicians tell us that the failed switch can be replaced without changing the complete pull down motor assembly.

One or both transmission output shaft seals may leak. Our technicians tell us that worn bushings inside the transmission could be the cause of the damaged seals. Our technicians tell us that if a bushing is worn, excess play will be noted where the drive axle attaches to the transmission.

The electronic level ride system may not work properly; this may result in the rear of the vehicle riding too high or too low. Our technicians tell us that a height sensor or exhaust valve failure are common issues with this system. Proper diagnoses will be necessary to confirm the exact fault.

The high-pressure power steering lines are known to leak.
