Known Problems

As the vehicle ages, the plastic end tanks on the radiator may crack and cause a coolant leak. Because of the placement of the radiator, the leak may not be visible in the engine bay or underneath the vehicle. A radiator replacement would be required to fix this condition.

It is not uncommon for the exterior light bulbs to burn out prematurely. No repair option has been reported other than replacing the failed bulb.

Front upper strut mounts may wear prematurely, resulting in loud noise from the front of the vehicle when going over bumps.
