Fuel Tank Rubs Causing Noise And Possible Leak

The fuel tank may rub on the body at the front inner corner, causing a noise and possible fuel tank damage resulting in leakage of fuel. Dealers will inspect the fuel tank for wear and install a spacer between the fuel tank and body, as well as replace leaking tanks free of charge to resolve the concern.

Reclining Seats Create Pinch Hazard

The easy entry recliner seat operation may allow fingers or hands to get caught and pinched within the recliner mechanism. Dealers will install a protective cover over the recliner mechanism free of charge to resolve the concern.

Rear Axle U-Bolt Nuts Loosen

The nuts for the U-bolts that secure the rear axle to the frame may loosen and detach, causing the axle to shift and disrupt proper control of the vehicle while driving. Dealers will check the U-bolt nut torque and re-torque any loose U-bolts to the proper specification free of charge to resolve the concern.
