Sunroof Panel Detaches From Vehicle

The panoramic sunroof panel may detach from the roof of the vehicle while driving, due to a bonding failure with the sunroof wind deflector. Dealers will repair the wind deflector anchor plate free of charge to resolve the concern.

Passenger Air Bag Only Partially Deploys In An Accident

The wiring connector to the occupant classification system (OCS) may become dislodged when the passenger seat is moved, resulting in the air bag system to default to only a single stage deployment of the passenger frontal air bag.  Additionally, the air bag will not turn off as designed when there is a child in the front seat. Dealers will secure the OCS connector to prevent it from disconnecting free of charge to resolve the concern.
