The parking brake (and its lever) cannot reach the intended position in damp and/or frosty conditions. As a result, the vehicle may not be secured against rolling away.
In addition, the locking mechanism of the front hood can fail in the event of incorrect operation. This could cause the front hood to detach while the vehicle is being driven, posing a risk to the following traffic.
Furthermore, the passenger airbag could cease to function in temperatures of below -20 and over +80°C. This could increase the risk of injury in the event of an accident.
