Advisory details


On certain vehicles, the Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) system may not function as intended. In some instances, this could allow the tires to lose traction and the vehicle to skid without intervention by the VSA system. If the vehicle strikes a curb or slides off the roadway, it could result in a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury.

Correction: Dealers will reprogram the Vehicle Stability Assist software.
