Recall Details

On certain vehicles, housing bolts for the variable camshaft timing system could break, allowing camshaft timing to deviate. If this occurs, the engine would revert to “limp home mode”, limiting available engine power. This could increase the risk of an auto collision causing personal injury and/or property damage. Fix: Dealers will replace affected bolts.
