Average Mileage: 80,000 mi (20,000 mi - 140,000 mi)


The rear spoiler (if equipped) may allow water to leak into the trunk and onto the trunk lock assembly. This could cause corrosion on the lock assembly leading to false "trunk open" signals to the body control module (BCM) and erroneous security alarm system activation.
