Ed Wilson Terrible Running Board March 27, 2019
Overall Score
The 2018 van was purchased in Nov. 2018. There wee none on the lot with the things I wanted. It was found at another dealership and had running boards which were not on the list of items I wanted. The running boards are fine for getting in - but are miserable for getting out. When getting out, they are not wide enough to put your foot on - and you have to stretch your leg to reach over the top of the running board. It makes it very difficult to get out of the vehicle. And your pant leg gets dirty from rubbing on the running board. I asked at the dealership and they said from $400 to %500 to have them taken off. It is a very unsatisfactory situation.

On certain vehicles, the Wireless Ignition Node (a.k.a ignition switch) may allow the ignition key to inadvertently move from the ON position to the accessory (ACC) position while driving, causing the engine to shut off. This would result in a loss of motive power, power steering and power brakes,  and would disable the airbags as well as other supplemental restraint systems (SRS).  Increased steering and braking effort and a  loss of motive power could increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property. Loss of airbag / SRS function in a crash that warrants airbag deployment and/or other supplemental restraint system function could increase the risk of injury to vehicle occupants. Correction: Dealers will install a revised WIN module and frequency operated button ignition key (FOBIK). Note: Until the correction is performed, owners are advised to remove all objects from the FOBIK (Ignition Key) such as additional keys, key chains, etc, leaving only the FOBIK (ignition key).  After starting the vehicle, drivers should ensure that the key is securely and correctly aligned in the “ON” position before driving the vehicle. Note: This recall supersedes recalls 2011096 and 2014261. Vehicles having been serviced as part of these previous recalls will require re-inspection and repair.
