The tail light wiring harness in the cargo area is not protected very well. As a result it may become damaged due to normal wear a tear. This damage can causing some or all of the rear lights to stop working.

Extended life coolant may become contaminated and require cooling system service before the recommended 100,000 miles.
Our technicians recommend flushing the brake fluid every 60,000 miles. Brake fluid that is dirty may cause problems in the brake system.
