After the car has been washed or in the rain, the cavity around the fuel filler neck may be filled with water due to a blocked drain. The water and debris can then enter the gas tank when the gas cap is removed for refueling. It is recommended to clear the cavity of any water or debris before removing the fuel cap.

The front automatic seat belt commonly sticks in its track and fails to properly operate, causing a safety issue. This also causes an electrical draw that will drain the battery and may cause the car not to start. The dealer may cover (or partially cover) the repair costs.

Our technicians tell us that window adjustment should be checked first if any of these symptoms occur.

The plastic coolant reservoir is prone to leak. The reservoir can mysteriously lose coolant or coolant may pool under the engine compartment. If this occurs, the coolant reservoir should be inspected for cracks. If leaks are neglected, the reservoir may fail and cause the engine to overheat.
