As you can see the van has minimal mileage with multiple repairs. Reported directly via E-mail to Chevrolet. Also received a file number and sent copies of repairs directly to Chevrolet. The last E-mail was sent 5/23 because my van had a puddle of gasoline 2 ft wide and 1 1/2 ft long underneath it. Could have taken out children, home and van itself. Dealer claims it is a faulty gas tank. Will be replacing with new. Vehicle lives at dealer. Not enough space to tell the "legend of the lemon"
