Fuel Gauge Inaccurate

The fuel gauge may not read accurately, due to the improper installation of the fuel tank breather tube, as well as the presence of a temporary fuel tank breather tube cap that should have been removed during vehicle assembly. Dealers will inspect the fuel tank breather tube and replace the fuel tank, fuel sending unit and / or fuel tank breather tube as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Brake Fluid Leaks

Brake fluid may leak from the anti-lock brake actuator pump onto an internal circuit board. This can cause a fire hazard. Dealers will inspect the ABS actuator and replace it as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Wiring To Engine Control Unit Has Faulty Connection

The wiring terminal pin fit at the engine control unit (ECU) may not be secure. Dealers will replace the terminal pin on the engine room harness free of charge to resolve the concern.
