The door latches of the vehicle may not properly secure the doors in the closed position. If the door is not secure it may open while driving, resulting in possible occupant injury.
The engine may stall while running and driving, or the engine may not start due to a part within the fuel pump electric module overheating. This could cause an accident.
The passenger frontal air bag assembly is deployed by an inflator which contains propellant that makes the air bag deploy. This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.
The seat back trim cover for the second row center seating position restricts the child seat anchors. This prevents proper attachment of a child safety seat, and could result in occupant injury.
The automatic transmission may unexpectedly and suddenly shift into first gear, regardless of vehicle speed. This could cause the vehicle to jerk and slow without warning and lock the rear tires causing them to slide without warning. This could result in a loss of vehicle control and injury.
The driver's frontal air bag may not deploy full in a crash, resulting in increased risk of occupant injury.
The engine block heaters equipped on affected vehicles may overheat, resulting in a possible fire risk.
The fuel delivery module may crack, causing fuel to leak. This can result in a fire hazard and fuel odor.
A seam of the fuel tank may develop a fuel leak, due to excessive corrosion from exposure to road salt. This could cause a fire hazard, as well as a fuel odor.
The fuel tank may have been manufactured without sufficient thickness in the tank walls. This could result in the tank fracturing and leaking fuel in an accident, causing a fire hazard.
