Known Problems

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

Front compliance (lower control arm ) bushings tend to crack and break requiring replacement.

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

A faulty brake master cylinder reservoir filter can cause the brake system indicator to illuminate after a cold start and then go off. Replacement of the reservoir filter will commonly fix this problem.

A Check Engine light can come on if the EGR ports have clogged. The P0401 code may be set as well.

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

The clock light has a tendency to burn out.

Plugged moon roof drains can cause a water leak inside the car. The water will usually leak onto the driver's or passenger's head when the car turns a corner.

The throttle body can accumulate carbon deposits causing the throttle to stick or pop when first accelerating after the vehicle sits for a while. Performing a throttle body service will generally correct this problem.

The evaporative emission control solenoid (in the EVAP system) can fail in areas of the country where salt is used on the roads during winter.

Some models have problems with alternator bearing failures.

A rough idle and harsh transmission shift can be caused by a broken front engine mount. Replacing the broken mount will address these issues.

The upper windshield molding can vibrate at higher speeds causing a noise. Back filling the molding with a silicone sealer is involved in the repair.
