NHTSA recall campaign number: 04V110000 fuel rail leak Cadillac refuses to replace the leaking fuel rail. They inspected the car on 9/13/2004, and at that time there was no evidence of a leak. Now, there is a leak, and they refuse to replace the fuel rail with the new stainless steel fuel rail. They have stated they have no obligation to reinspect the vehicle. I read lin foster (from Cadillac at 800-333-4223) the NHTSA bulletin "the recalled Cadillac will receive the new stainless steel fuel rails, " and he continued to state that Cadillac had no responsibility to inspect the vehicle twice. The dealership will no repair the vehicle unless there is an open "service campaign" and Cadillac refuses to open a service campaign stating the vehicle has been looked at once, and that is all that they have a duty to do. The recall has not been performed and the fuel rail is leaking.

I would also like to bring to your attention the fact that the fuel filter is located on the right side of the frame just inches from the front bumper. I strongly feel that this needs imediate attention. Also, my seatback broke immediataly after impact which rendered my shoulder harness useless.
