Known Problems

The driver's door latch assembly can break internally, which causes the door to stay closed. The interior and exterior door handles do not work to open the door. Our technicians note that the door panel must be removed while the door is closed (likely damage will occur) and the latch assembly must be drilled in a specific spot for the door to open.

If the brake pedal feels hard the first time it is pressed in the morning, it could be due to a problem with the vacuum supply hose for the brake booster. A revised brake booster hose is available to address this concern.

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

The distributors on higher mileage vehicles can leak oil onto the heater hose causing the hose to soften and break. Heater hose breakage will cause a coolant leak.

A long cranking time before the engine starts might require a PCM software update and replacement of the fuel pressure regulator.

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

Damaged engine mounts can lead to vibration and roughness felt in the steering wheel. A rattle in the dash and engine area may also be heard. Replacement of damaged mounts will commonly correct these issues.

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

The front brake rotors can warp and cause a vibration when braking. The rotors will need to be machined or in cases where they are worn too thin, replaced to correct this issue.

One or both of the rear sway bar end links may break resulting in a knocking noise from the rear of the vehicle.

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

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.

The clock light has a tendency to burn out.
