Known Problems

The AC condenser failed due to contact with road debris and a lack of protection for the condenser.

Leaking gaskets around the tail lights can allow water entry into the tail light assembly. New gaskets should fix this concern.

On certain models, a transmission solenoid can short-circuit and illuminate the Check Engine Light.

A water leak on the passenger floor can be caused by a clogged AC evaporator drain.
