The accelerator pedal may bend and fracture, making it difficult to accelerate the vehicle. Dealers will add a supporting rubber underneath the pedal stopper free of charge to resolve the problem.

In the event of a crash where the side curtain airbags are deployed a headliner plate can detach, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will correct this concern by adding industrial adhesive strips to secure the headliner plates.

The plug that secures the pinion gear to the steering gear may loosen and fail, causing loss of steering. Dealers will replace the plug with a new style with properly applied thread-locking adhesive free of charge to resolve the problem.
