The crankshaft position sensor may fail, causing engine stalling or a failure to start. Replacement or the failed sensor will commonly correct this problem.
If the automatic transmission does not shift properly and the Check Engine Light illuminates, the speed sensors in the transmission may have failed. The sensors are simple and inexpensive to replace.
On the 2.7L V6 and 2.4L 4 Cylinder, a defective exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) switching valve may cause an intermittent rough or unstable idle engine.
The Occupant Detection System (ODS) of the restraint system may not sense a child seat in the passenger front seat. This may cause the passenger front air bag to remain active when a child seat is installed, which can cause unintended deployment in a collision. Dealers will correct ODS software to resolve this concern.
An electronics fault causes conflicting steering wheel input data to shut down the power assist in affected vehicles. Power steering is most important at low speeds and while parking, and difficulty steering may result in a crash. Dealers will update electronics that control the power steering to correct this problem.

Dealers will inspect the left drive axle and replace it as necessary.
