Known Problems

Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.

You may be able to prevent transmission problems by servicing the transmission and inspecting the fluid every 30,000 miles. If the fluid is dark or burned, the transmission system should be completely flushed.

The bolts attaching the front door window glass to the window regulator may come loose. This can cause the window regulator to become damaged and possibly causing the window glass to break. Some 2003 & 2004 models have been recalled for the issue.

Extended life coolant may become contaminated and require cooling system service before the recommended 100,000 miles.

Front brake rotors can wear causing a pulsation felt in the brake pedal. Our technicians often recommend replacement of the front rotors and brake pads as the best option to correct this condition.

Brake fluid can become dirty and may cause problems in the brake system; it should be flushed every 60,000 miles.
