Known Problems

The keyless entry system may stop working due to a loss of synchronization with one or more remotes. Our technicians tell us re-synchronization may be only a temporary solution, the keyless entry receiver may need replacement to correct this concern.

A knocking noise may be noted from the front suspension, commonly caused by damaged lower control arm bushings. Our technicians tell us the bushings or control arm should be replaced as necessary to correct this concern.

The parking brake may be hard to release. Our technicians tell us that adjusting the parking brake cable will generally correct this issue.

The express-up windows may reverse direction when closing, this is commonly caused by misalignment of the window glass or lack of lubrication of the window guides. Aligning the glass and lubing the window guides should correct this concern.
