Coolant Leak from Radiator

A coolant leak from the radiator can be caused by a defective thermostat bypass. This can cause pressure spikes in the cooling system, which leads to radiator failure. The thermostat assembly and radiator should be replaced.

High Pressure Diesel Fuel Injection Pump May Fail and Cause "No Start" Condition

The high pressure diesel fuel injection pump may fail, resulting in a "no start" condition.

Engine Cranks but will Not Start - Diesel

The inside of the tire sidewalls may have been damaged upon vehicle assembly. Dealers will inspect the tires for damage and replace them as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

When shifting the transmission from park to drive, transmission may improperly engage reverse instead of drive briefly before finally engaging the drive position as selected, possibly resulting in unexpected vehicle movement. Dealers will update the transmission software free of charge to resolve the concern.

The brake/shift interlock can fail, allowing the transmission to be shifted into park without depressing the brake pedal.

Dealers will inspect the brake shift interlock switch function and replace the switch if necessary.
