The biggest reasons for complaints are:

Reasons for recalls include:

  • Rear seat belt may be unable to latch. This makes travel dangerous, especially in the case of a collision.
  • Insufficient low beam illumination. If drivers can’t see well at night, the chance of an accident increases.
  • Inadvertent driver airbag deployment. If an airbag deploys when it shouldn’t, it could startle or even injure the driver. This could lead to an accident.
  • Wrong control unit software installed. This could interfere with the airbags properly deploying, which increases the risk of injury.
  • Starting current limiter may overheat. This could melt surrounding components, which could lead to a fire.
  • Damaged electronic stability control unit. This could alter the vehicle’s path and interfere with the electronic parking brake. Both hazards increase the risk of a crash.
  • Steering column wiring harness incorrectly routed. This could cause the airbag to deploy or the engine to stall. Both could increase the risk of a crash.

  • Starting current limiter may overheat. This could melt surrounding components, which could lead to a fire.
  • Seatbelt pretensioners may not function properly. Passengers may not be properly restrained, leaving them open to additional injury in an accident.
