In the affected vehicles, the halfshaft retention clip may not have been properly installed. As a result, without prior warning the halfshaft may move outward and disengage from the linkshaft while driving. This would result in loss of engine power to the drive wheels. Dealers will inspect the vehicles to make sure that the halfshaft is properly retained. If it is not, dealers will replace the linkshaft and also replace the halfshaft if it shows evidence of spline damage.

The rear doors on these vehicles are equipped with child safety locks that prevent the doors from being opened from the inside when engaged. As the rear doors are opened and closed, one or both child safety locks may switch from engaged to disengaged without warning. With the child lock disengaged, a door could be opened accidentally, increasing the risk of injury to an unrestrained occupant. Dealers will test the safety locks and replace those not meeting the testing standard.
The fuel delivery module, which is located at the fuel tank, can crack, resulting in a fuel leak. Any fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel delivery module in the affected vehicles to correct this concern.
