If a rear suspension trailing arm becomes bent, its durability may be compromised and it could break unexpectedly. If this were to occur vehicle control would be affected, increasing the risk of a crash. When parts become available, dealers will install a sheet metal inlay on each of the rear axle trailing arms to prevent sudden loss of vehicle control should a rear trailing arm suddenly break.

Certain vehicles produced with the DQ-200 direct-shift transmission are being recalled because the fluid additive used in the transmission could cause corrosion of the internal components. This corrosion can cause an electrical short resulting in a stall like condition. A sudden loss of engine power would increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the transmission oil with a non-corrosive version to correct this concern.
