PTilly So reliable! November 04, 2018 SXT
Overall Score
I bought this car as a former rental - it had less than 20K km and was only 6 months old. I can honestly say that I had low expectations, having been an "import guy", I thought I'd have the car for a year or so then trade it in (the initial price was fantastic). Having had it now for more than 8 years I can easily say that this has been the most reliable, trouble-free, comfortable car that we have ever had. Aside from the one (airbag) recall, regular servicing has been all it's needed. One sets of brakes, one set of tires is ALL it has ever needed. All the bulbs are original! Quite amazing as it now has nearly 160K km of somewhat heavy driving. There are some things that are not all that great - the kind of numb steering, the fact that you have to slowly open the trunk when its raining or you'll dump water onto whatever... but you know, it gets great gas mileage, the stereo system sounds fine, it doesn't look awful... you get the picture, I'm very happy with my former rental car, purchased at a steep discount.

Issue: This recall is for aftermarket replacement rear window glass produced by Vitro Automotriz. Certain rear window glass may not have been properly tempered. If the window breaks, the glass may separate into large pieces instead of very small ones. Note: This is a voluntary recall that is not being conducted under the requirements of the Motor Vehicle Safety Act. Safety Risk: Glass that breaks in to large pieces could create a risk of injury. Corrective Actions: The company will notify consumers by mail and instruct them to inspect the designation code marked on the rear window glass. Products affected by this recall have the designation “DOT 287” along with the lettering “VMR” (Replacement Market) and a date code that is before July 2019. This information is printed on the bottom corner of the glass. Consumers should contact Vitro's customer service at 1-412-995-6457 or argbacklites@vitro.com to arrange for replacement of the glass.

On certain vehicles, there could be an electrical condition within the Occupant Restraint Control ("ORC") module. This may result in the airbag warning lamp illuminating, and the active head restraints not to deploy during certain rear impact collisions, which could increase the risk of injury to front seat occupants. Correction: Dealers will inspect the ORC part number and replace the ORC if necessary. Note: Vehicles that have been previously repaired with the updated ORC under recall 2016-448 will not require repairing under this recall campaign.

On certain vehicles, the airbag warning lamp may illuminate due to an electrical fault within the Occupant Restraint Control (ORC) module. As a result, the Active Head Restraints (AHR) may not deploy during a rear impact collision (where deployment is warranted), which could increase the risk of personal injury to the front seat occupants. Correction: Dealers will reprogram the Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) or replace the ORC module, as required.

Certain vehicles may experience fuel leakage or engine stall due to a broken control valve in the fuel tank assembly. Engine stalling would result in lost vehicle propulsion which, in conjunction with traffic and road conditions, and the driver’s reactions, could increase the risk of a crash. Fuel leakage, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire. These issues could result in property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will inspect the control valve in the fuel tank. If the control valve is damaged, the fuel tank assembly and vapour canister will be replaced.

On certain vehicles, the front door latch cable may become partially unseated from the interior release handle housing. This may cause the latch to stick in the unlatched position or the lock-function to become inoperative.

On certain vehicles, the front seat track position sensors utilized for the airbag system may not function properly. Sensor information is used to lessen inflation pressure for smaller statured occupants who may be seated in close proximity to the airbag. Failure of the seat track position sensors causes the airbag deployment to default to full inflation pressure regardless of the seat position. Full deployment could increase the risk of injury for smaller statured seat occupants in a frontal crash. Correction: Dealers will inspect the front seat track position sensors and replace them if necessary.
