On certain vehicles, the airbag warning labels affixed to the sun visors are in English only, which fail to comply with the requirements of CMVSS 208. Dealers will inspect the labels and, if necessary, install visors with bilingual warning labels.

On certain vehicles, the closing force of an internal spring in the fuel tank ventilation valve is not adequate to hold the valve closed under extreme conditions. During certain driving manoeuvres, liquid fuel may enter the fuel tank venting system and migrate into the evaporative system, saturating the carbon canister. This may cause performance issues such as the vehicle jerking, and the malfunction indicator lamp could illuminate. In certain instances, fuel could also leak from the evaporation system leak detection pump filter which, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a vehicle fire. Dealers will replace the valve with an improved version.
