Known Problems
If power mode closes the lift gate—but does not open it—the power lift gate (PLG) module might need a software update.

If the heater is on and no heat is felt from the right side dash vents, there may be a problem with the blend air door shaft; a revised part is available to address this concern.

It is not uncommon or the power window motor and/or regulator to fail. In most cases the door panel will require removal to determine the exact failure.

A yellow anti-lock brake system (ABS) warning light may remain illuminated. If a wheel speed sensor fault is discovered, sensor connectors should be inspected. Damaged or spread terminals must be repaired or replaced.

Intermittently, the key may not start the car or release from the ignition. If it is excessively worn, replace the key. If the new key doesn't work, replacing the lock cylinder including tumblers should correct this concern.

Excessive oil consumption—defined as more than one quart per 1,000 miles (on vehicles with less than 50,000 miles) or more than one quart per 750 miles (on vehicles with more than 50,000 miles)—is common. Common causes include exhaust valve guides, valve cover gaskets, camshaft plugs, camshaft seals, and crankshaft seal.

Shifting harshness and shuddering issues related to the operation of the automatic transmission have been addressed by factory service bulletins. The shuddering can feel like the vehicle is being driven over rumble strips.

V6 engines may experience surging while driving. The condition is more noticeable between 40 and 50 MPH while accelerating up a hill/slight incline. Replacing the powertrain control module (PCM) and updating the transmission control module (TCM) software may be required.

The rear evaporator tubes in the rear HVAC unit may develop small leaks, causing weak or no air conditioning. A new rear evaporator unit has been designed to address this and should be installed to address this condition.

When braking during low speeds (under 10 MPH), the brake pedal may vibrate and the ABS hydraulic unit may cause a rumbling noise. This is caused by a momentary loss of the wheel speed signal to the ABS controller. Adjusting or replacing the wheel speed sensor will commonly fix this problem.

The rear lift gate support (prop) attaching bolts may break, causing the lift gate to fall unexpectedly. Thorough inspection of the bolts is required; if the support washers are loose, the supports need to be replaced.

The door ajar light may illuminate and chime during driving, even when the sliding door is closed. Often, this is caused by a faulty switch in the C-pillar; a revised switch is available.

The Check Engine Light may illuminate for many different reasons, some of which may be corrected by updating the software in the powertrain control module (PCM).

If you have to press the remote button numerous times to open the power liftgate, it may be necessary to update the software in the power liftgate module to correct this issue.
