Known Problems

Premature wear in various multi-link suspension components can cause noises that are difficult to diagnose. Worn suspension parts can also cause uneven tire wear and create steering alignment problems.

Oil leaks from the camshaft drive pulleys and variable valve timing hydraulics are common. If the variable valve timing hydraulics is leaking, the Check Engine Light may illuminate from inaccurate valve timing.
To avoid sludge accumulation inside the engine, our technicians recommend using the proper synthetic oil with the appropriate oil filter.

An External oil leak may develop from the valley pan gasket (under the intake manifold) and/or the head gasket.

Our technicians recommend having the constant velocity (CV) boots and CV joints inspected at each service. Servicing torn CV boots early can prevent the need to replace the CV half shaft or CV joint.

Clogged sunroof drains can allow water to enter the interior and accumulate under the carpet where various control modules are mounted. Over time, the accumulated moisture can damage the control modules.

Erratic turn signal operation can be a result of a failing turn signal flasher relay which will require replacement.

The digital display portion of the instrument cluster may fail. Our technicians tell us the entire instrument cluster will need to be replaced to correct this concern.
