Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

I started experiencing a strong smell of gasoline while driving and when the vehicles was shut down. When I first noticed the odor I could not see any visible leaks under the vehicle, after about a week I started noticing drips of fuel under the vehicle. I crawled under the vehicle to find the leak and noticed a very fine spray of gasoline coming from the top of the tank. I then dropped the fuel tank and noticed that tube from the fuel pump was corroded to the point that it was spraying gasoline while under pressure. The fuel pump is located in a low point on the top of the tank which allows for road debris/salt and water to sit and erode these tubes on the top of the fuel pump. This is a very dangerous problem as all it would take is any form of ignition to cause an uncontrollable fire. GM should be required to repair this under a mandated recall due to the severity of this problem.

My car is reaping with the smell of gas on the inside and outside of the car. I called GM customer care center about this problem being hazardous and all they offered was a $150 voucher available at the GMC dealership. I am confused as to why 2006/2007 models were recalled for this matter and the 2003 model was not recalled. I am afraid to drive this car because I believe it will explode!

Some times when the brakes are applied the throttle also advances causing unwanted acceleration. Happens at low speeds. Have there been any factory recalls for this problem?

The car starting leaking gas and I was afraid it would start a fire. I found out that the gas tank filler neck was cracked. Replacement cost was $1,220.68. GMC said that this was not a recall item for my car but there were recalls for the same problem for the Envoy XL.

I have a 03 Envoy sxl that smelled like gas, the dealer stated there was a crack in the hose. I had that replaced and now it leaks gas going downhill. As I saw others are having the same issues and most if not all that has SUV's have children. If the same model part was recalled on the trailblazer why not Envoy's? GMC should recall all cars that has the model number to fix the problem before they go up in flames with our children.
