Known Problems

Higher mileage cars can develop creaking and groaning noises in the front suspension, particularly when coming to a quick stop. Inspection and replacement of any worn parts should correct this concern.

Owners have reported experiencing rough deceleration, inability to engage overdrive, and a check engine light with diagnostic trouble code P0770. Problems with the torque converter or deferred transmission maintenance can trigger this. Professional transmission diagnosis is recommended to address this issue to prevent unnecessary part replacement and expenditure.
