Known Problems

Rear differential and axle seals are prone to repeated leaks.

Water may leak into the transmission from the dipstick tube, causing fluid contamination and a shudder during light acceleration. New seals for the dipstick tube are available; the transmission fluid should be flushed as well. If the problem lingers, a new torque converter may be needed.

A whine type noise may develop form the engine area when the car is idling (typically in warmer temperatures, after the engine has warmed up). It's possible that the noise may be from the engine oil system and is harmless. Still, have a technician verify that the noise is nothing to worry about.

Spilling beverages around the cup holder may cause the lid to stick or bind.
If the battery is disconnected, the express windows will need to be recalibrated in order for the express function to work. First, run each express window to the fully-closed position. Hold the switch for at least two seconds before releasing. Repeat this procedure, running the windows to the fully-open position. If the ESP light illuminates, the steering angle may also require recalibration.
