Eric6889 Very dependable car November 22, 2017
Overall Score
Safe and reliable car with very little maintenance. Comfortable ride with plenty of room for five adults. My only issue is the turning base is very wide so making u-turns or parking can be quite tight. The car is nine years ld and has been reliable and repairs have been fair.

Manufacturer Recall Number:

Units Affected:

Notification Type:
Inconsequential
Certain vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 102 - Transmission Control Functions. The indicator light of the PRNDM provided to identify the transmission shift position is not activated under certain circumstances when the ignition key cylinder is in a zone between the ignition “OFF” detent and the accessory “ACC” detent when the engine is off. This condition can occur if the vehicle operator rotates the key cylinder toward the “OFF” detent while the engine is running and the shift lever is in a position other than “PARK”. This will result in the key cylinder hitting a stop which prevents it from being fully turned to the “OFF” detent position. At this key position, electrical power has been disconnected from the shift lever position indication light because the key cylinder has been rotated beyond “ACC” detent and the electrical switch contacts have opened. If this sequence of operator actions were to occur, the shift lever position indication light would not be illuminated and the vehicle transmission would not be in “PARK”. If this condition were present, the key cannot be removed from the vehicle because the transmission is not placed into “PARK”. If the operator exited the vehicle in the condition described above (leaving the key in the ignition), an audible warning to the driver would activate whenever the driver's door is unlocked and opened. Correction: A production change has been undertaken to remedy the technical non-compliance. No corrective recall action is required as the technical non-compliance is deemed to be non-safety related.

Notification Type:
Safety TC
On certain vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions, shift cable locking tabs could fracture without warning. If this occurs, the transmission may not be in the PARK position and may not match the gear position indicated by the shift lever. The driver would be able to remove the key from the ignition, but the door locks may not unlock automatically and the PARK indicator lamp would not be illuminated. The driver may not be able to restart the vehicle and the vehicle could roll away after the driver has exited the vehicle, resulting in a possible crash which may cause property damage or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will install a shift cable retainer clip, or replaced the shift cable, as necessary.

Manufacturer Recall Number:

Notification Type:
Superseded
Certain vehicles equipped with electric power steering may experience a sudden loss of power steering assist that could occur at any time while driving. If the power steering assist is lost, a message is displayed on the Driver Information Centre and a chime sounds to inform the driver. Steering control can be maintained, as the vehicle will revert to a manual steering mode, but requires greater driver effort at low vehicle speeds. Unless a driver compensates for this additional steering effort, loss of power steering assist may increase the risk of a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Vehicles will receive a special extended warranty coverage for a period of 10 years/240,000 km, whichever occurs first, from the date the vehicle was originally placed in service, regardless of ownership. Under this special coverage program, for 2005 & 2006 model year vehicles, dealers will replace the steering column. For 2008 model year vehicles, dealers will replace the power steering motor control module.

Note: This recall supersedes recalls 2010447 and 2012331. Vehicles having already been repaired under the previous campaigns do not require re-inspection.

On certain vehicles equipped with 4 speed automatic transmissions, the shift cable could fracture without warning. If this occurs, the driver may not be able to select a different gear position, remove the key from the ignition, or place the transmission in the PARK position. If the driver cannot place the vehicle in the PARK position and exits the vehicle without applying the parking brake, the vehicle could roll away, which could result in a crash causing injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will install a revised shift cable and mounting bracket.

On certain vehicles, intermittent electrical connection faults may cause the brake lamps to illuminate without the brake pedal being depressed, or not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed. This could also interfere with cruise control, ABS and/or vehicle stability control function. Failure of the brake lights to illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed or erratic brake lamp function could increase the risk of a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will affect repairs.
