problem #1

Apr 102005


  • 90,000 miles
The contact owns a 2002 Pontiac aztec. The contact stated that there was an unusually strong odor of gasoline emitting in the front exterior and interior cabin of the vehicle. The dealer was unable to duplicate or locate the origin of the failure. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic for an unrelated repair where the mechanic noticed that the fuel filler was fractured and leaking gasoline. The contact was advised that there were recalls on her year, make and model vehicle for the identical failure (NHTSA campaign id number: 07V349000: Fuel system, gasoline storage); however, the manufacturer stated that her VIN was not included in the recall. No repairs were made to the vehicle. The failure mileage was 90,000 and the current mileage was 165,577.
