Known Problems

The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to an EVAP system purge fault. Our technicians tell us there is a powertrain control module (PCM) software update available which can correct this concern.

A lack of power concern may develop accompanied by illumination of the Check Engine Light and several fault codes stored. This condition may be caused by a failed MAP sensor which will require replacement with an updated part.

A rough idle, high idle, or stalling condition may develop. Our technicians tell us updating the powertrain control module (PCM) software can correct these issues.

Creaking of squeaking noises may be noted from the sway bar bushings. Our technicians tell us revised bushings are available which should correct this concern.

Multiple electrical system failures may be due to defective or damaged insulation at the wiring harness inside the left front fender liner. Any damaged wires should be properly repaired and repositioned to avoid further damage.

A harsh automatic transmission downshift from 4th to 3rd gear may develop. This problem can often be cured by reprogramming the automatic transmission control module.
