The hydraulic electronic control unit (HECU) may be improperly sealed allowing water to get onto the HECU circuit board. This can result in corrosion build up and a fire hazard from a short circuit.
The driver's seat back frame may not have been welded sufficiently, and as a result may break and fail to restrain an occupant in a crash. This would increase risk of injury.
The right front axle driveshaft may crack and fail, separating from the vehicle. This could result in loss of vehicle control and a crash. This could also allow the vehicle to roll away when parked if the parking brake is not applied.
Welds in the rear suspension may break, resulting in the changing of the wheel alignment. This could result in a vehicle accident.
The hood may open unexpectedly while driving due to a secondary hood latch that fails to secure it. This could cause loss of visibility and vehicle control.
The front suspension lower control arms may fracture and separate from the vehicle if exposed to excessive road salt. This would result in a loss of vehicle control.
The plates that are screwed down to fasten the front seat belt retractor to the vehicle may not be tightened properly. This could result in the seat belt separating from the vehicle in an accident, failing to restrain an occupant.
The driver's frontal air bag assembly may not deploy with proper dual stage force in an accident due to a special chemical enhancer required not being loaded with the module. As a result, passengers have an increased risk of injury.
The headlights may begin to flicker and possibly turn off while using the "AUTO" function of the headlight and multi-function switch. This would cause reduced visibility while driving and increase risk of an accident.
The hose that carries transmission fluid to a cooler that keeps the fluid from overheating may develop a leak. This can result in transmission failure and the vehicle not moving when commanded.
