Known Problems

A harsh engagement of the automatic transmission may be noted after the engine auto stops. A software update for the powertrain control module (PCM) / constantly variable transmission (CVT) is available which may correct this issue.

The IMA light coming on is usually caused by a battery pack that is no longer charging correctly. Replacing the battery pack will turn off the IMA light.

A vibration may be felt in the steering wheel upon brake application. Our technicians tell us that this condition is generally caused by warped front brake rotors. Replacement or re-machining of the faulty rotors will be necessary to correct this issue.

On certain models the windshield wipers will not park in the proper place or won't shut off. The wiper motor must be replaced to repair this issue.

Plugged moon roof drains can cause a water leak inside the car, usually over the head of the driver or passengers head when turning a corner. Cleaning the drains will fix this problem.
