Vehicle Oversteers And Loses Control

The vehicle may over-steer due to anti-roll bar connecting links moving out of position. Dealers will inspect and replace the front anti-roll bar links as needed free of charge to resolve the concern.

Brake Pedal Separates

The brake pedal pivot pin may become dislodged, resulting in the brake pedal separating from the pedal arm. Dealers will inspect the brake pedal assembly clip and install a replacement clip if one is missing free of charge to resolve the concern.

Potential Fuel Leak

The fuel injection system uses tubes called fuel rails to get the fuel to the fuel injectors. These fuel rails can leak. Any fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the affected fuel rails to correct this concern.
