Known Problems

The ESP and BAS warning lights may illuminate due to a failed brake light switch. Replacement of the failed switch should correct this concern.

Window seals tend to develop leaks.
Cup holders break easily, especially if sticky liquids are spilled into the cup holder mechanism.
Due to wear of mechanical parts in the control head, the buttons on temperature control assemblies work erratically or not at all. These control heads need to be replaced for this concern or when the display screen starts to fade out.
Oil feed tubes break and fall into the crankcase (engine) and the tappet becomes noisy (ticking), resulting in degraded idle quality. Our technicians recommend replacing all of the tubes at the same time, broken or not.
Glove box hinges, the center console armrest, and the cup holders break.

Instrument cluster lenses break easily.
