Valve cover gasket leaks are common after 60,000 miles. Symptoms will include oil drips under the vehicle and burning oil smell from the engine compartment.
An engine coolant leak may develop from the expansion tank resulting in engine overheating. When a cooling system component fails the entire cooling system should be inspected. It is not uncommon to find additional component have failed or are leaking.
Overheating can cause severe engine damage. If the engine begins to overheat it is recommended to stop at the first available location and have your vehicle towed to a repair shop.

The front brake line where it is mounted at the front strut could become detached, allowing the brake hose to contact the tire. This contact may cause the brake hose to wear and leak, which can cause brake loss. Dealers will install an additional retainer clip to secure the brake line and make sure there has been no damage to the hoses.
