Known Problems

The manual transmission may become difficult to shift into reverse. Our technicians tell us that the repair involves replacing the shift control lever assembly with a revised part.

A hard shifting concern may develop. If this occurs a friction modifier can be added to the manual transmission fluid to help minimize this issue.

Vehicles with automatic transmissions may exhibit a delayed 2/3 or 3/4 upshift when transmission fluid temperature is below 95 degrees Fahrenheit. Our technicians tell us this is considered a normal condition.

The transfer case may develop a leak from the output seal. Our technicians tell us that if the transfer case oil level becomes low severe internal damage will result. Any leaks should be promptly addressed and the oil level should be checked at regular intervals

The front brake hoses my crack when operated at full steering lock and suspension travel. If this occurs the affected brake hoses should be replaced to avoid a serious loss of braking efficiency.

Tire size mismatch on all-wheel drive vehicles can cause the front and rear driving wheels to "fight" (driveline wrap-up) which can result in drive train failure. Our technicians tell us that original equipment size wheels and tires should always be used to avoid the issue.
