The transmission may not downshift correctly (such as shifting from fifth to fourth when coasting) due to a computer software error. This could result in lower than expected engine RPMs and possible engine stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
Excess coating of the underbody can result in rigid, icicle-like areas hanging from the undercarriage. Over time, this rough coating may damage the fuel lines, resulting in a fuel leak and increasing the risk of a fire.
Because of a wiring problem under the front seats, in the event of a crash, the front and/or side impact airbags may not deploy as expected.
Vehicles equipped with the optional spare tire and wheel kit have an incorrect tire pressure information label.
A leak may develop from the power steering return hose, resulting in a sudden loss of power steering assist and increasing the risk of a crash.
A fuel leak or complete disconnect may develop from one of the fuel line fittings. Fuel leaks always increase the risk of a fire. In the case of complete disconnect, the engine may stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
Due to loss of fuel pressure, the engine may hesitate or stall with the fuel level below the 1/4 mark. This condition increases the risk of a crash.
A power steering leak could develop at the steering gear valve housing. This could lead to a sudden loss of power steering, increasing the risk of a crash.
Seven vehicles are being recalled because a crack may develop on a structural support in the engine compartment. Cracking of this support can affect crash performance, increasing the risk of injury.
