Passenger Frontal Air Bag Disabled Unintentionally

Wiring for the passenger side occupant detection system can be worn through by the passenger seat frame. This can cause the passenger side air bag to not operate properly in an accident, and additionally can cause the rest of the restraint system to fail. Dealers will double wrap the wires with anti-abrasion tape and replace damaged wires as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Engine Oil Leaks Onto Exhaust Manifold

Engine oil can leak onto the exhaust manifold, causing a fire hazard. This concern was addressed in previous recall notifications, but improvements to the repair have been made. Dealers will make improved repairs free of charge to resolve the concern.
