The passenger air bag may not fully deploy in an accident because of a problem with a wiring connector being dislodged from the front passenger seat occupant classification system. This could result in increased risk of occupant injury. Additionally, the system will not be able to detect when a child is in the front seat, resulting in first stage deployment of the passenger frontal air bag in an accident, when it should be disabled. This could result in injury also.
The driver's knee guard used to protect a driver's lower body in the event of an accident may not be properly attached to the steering beam in the vehicle. This could result in the driver not being properly restrained in an accident, and would increase the risk of injury.
The electronic power steering control unit may have electrical contacts that may not have been welded properly. This could cause a fire hazard.
The right front axle driveshaft may crack and fail, separating from the vehicle. This could result in loss of vehicle control and a crash. This could also allow the vehicle to roll away when parked if the parking brake is not applied.
The vehicle was manufactured without a proper combination of inside and outside mirrors. Vehicles are required to have an inside rear view mirror or both left and right hand side flat exterior review mirrors. Some may have been equipped without an inside mirror and with a right side convex mirror. This could impede rear visibility and result in a crash.
For vehicles equipped with a manual transmission, the hatchback may be able to be released with only a single press of the interior latch release button. This does not comply with federal requirements that require multiple touches of the release button to open the hatchback, in an effort to prevent unintended opening. This would increase risk of injury.
The panoramic sunroof panel may detach from the vehicle while driving, due to a failure of bonding with the vehicle. This could cause a road hazard and possibly injury.
The motor that operates the windshield wipers may overheat, causing the wiper operation to fail. This could result in decreased visibility and result in a crash. The wiper motor plastic cover could also melt, resulting in a fire hazard.
The drain hose for the air conditioning system that routes water condensation outside of the vehicle may leak inside the vehicle. Excessive water drainage into the passenger compartment may adversely affect air bag deployment in the event of a crash, which would increase risk of injury.
The rear tow hook bracket as mounted to the vehicle may be not securely installed. This could cause a road hazard if it should detach while driving the vehicle, and could fracture while the vehicle is being towed, resulting in loss of control of the vehicle when towed.
Fuel may leak from the area of the fuel tank, resulting in a fire hazard.
The inlet check valve portion of the fuel tank may have been improperly welded during manufacturing, resulting in a fuel leak. This would cause a fire hazard.
The driver's frontal air bag inflator may not be welded properly and may separate when the air bag deploys in an accident. This would cause metal to strike vehicle occupants, possibly resulting in serious injury or death.
The suspension of the vehicle may allow for over-steering during certain driving conditions, resulting in a loss of vehicle control. This could result in an accident.
The headlights may be able to move out of adjustment because the locking clip that secures the horizontal adjustment may not be secured. This could result in reduced driver's visibility, or could blind oncoming vehicles. Both conditions could result in an accident.
