Front Seat Height Adjuster

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 Generator Control Module May Fail

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.

Burned Out Signal Bulbs May Go Undetected By The Driver

The front turn signals are equipped with two bulbs on each side. If one bulb fails, the driver would not be made aware of the loss of light function, which could create a safety hazard. Dealers will update the body control module software free of charge to resolve the concern.
