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.

Suspension Alignment Not Adjusted Properly

The front and rear axles may not be aligned properly, and fasteners may not be tightened to the proper torque level. Dealers will perform a front and rear suspension alignment free of charge to resolve the concern.
