Known Problems

A fluid leak may develop from one or more power steering hose. When a leak is being repaired, it is not uncommon for multiple hoses to be replaced.

If the brakes are squealing, there's a good chance it is the brake pad wear sensor.  A new design was implemented in January 2006 and can be identified by its green color.

Am engine oil leak may develop from the valve cover gasket. This commonly occurs on vehicles with over 60,000 miles. Replacement of the leaking gasket should correct this concern.

A creak or squeak can be heard from the top of the front or rear doors. This noise is most notable when the windows are fully up. The noise is caused by the decay of the flocking material on the door seals. New door seals, Teflon tape, special lube, or a combination of all of these may be needed to eliminate the noise.
