Brake pads and rotors may wear out prematurely. This can be heavily dependent on driving style. Our technicians recommend regular brake inspections with replacement of pads and rotors as required.

A no start or stalling condition may develop do to a failing fuel pump. A faulty fuel pump will require replacement. Our technicians recommend to inspect internal fuel tank connections for leaks whenever replacing the fuel pump.

A coolant leak may develop at the thermostat housing, under the intake manifold. Our technicians tell us that revised parts are available to correct this concern.

Condensation may develop in the heater case which can cause a musty odor from the heating, ventilation and AC (HVAC) system.  Our technicians tell us a cleaner is available for the heater case. Also, the drain system should be checked for debris.
