Known Problems

The anti-lock brake system (ABS) modulator assembly may fail due to dirty brake fluid. Our technicians recommend a complete brake system flush every two years in order to help prevent this problem.

The mass air flow sensor can fail, resulting in poor fuel economy and Check Engine Light illumination.

Ball joints can wear out prematurely, causing wear in the tires.

Computer control modules for the seats and doors, the CD changer, and the brake lamp switch tend to fail.

Going over large bumps in convertible models may cause the roll bar to deploy, rendering the roof inoperative. Special tools are generally required to return the roll bar to its stowed position.

Torque thrust bushings in the front suspension may crack and leak oil, this causes steering alignment problems and excessive tire wear. Another symptom of a worn bushing is a clunk or thud noted when turning, on hard acceleration, or hard braking.

Cup holders in the dash are known to break requiring repair or replacement.
