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.

Filler neck on gas tank has fractured causing gas vapors and possibly gas to escape the tank. I have been driving the vehicle with this condition present but have just received a notice from GMC indicating that they are aware of the problem but my vehicle is outside of the window they will cover for repairs.

I purchased the vehicle March of 2014 from sunset motors in coeur D alene, id. The following day the car died and I took it back to the dealer where they told me the fuel pump needed replaced; which they replaced. I left the dealership after the repair was completed and filled my gas tank when I began to smell a strong odor of gas. I pulled away from the pump and looked under the vehicle to see gas leaking from what appeared to be the fuel tank. I took it back to the dealership and they said that the neck of the gas tank was cracked and they would repair it. I left with the vehicle after sunset motors stated the repair was done on the gas tank. The check engine light came on the following day. The code was reading P0455 large evap leak. I have tried replacing the gas cap as recommended by autozone where I took the vehicle to have the code read. The light continued to come on over the course of months. I recently took it to aamco after my vehicle started vibrating while in idle where they informed me that the crack in the neck of the fuel tank was still apparent and fuel tank needed replaced. After doing research I have found this is a common problem for this vehicle and GM had offered to extend the warranty when research into safety was done previously which was accepted and no recall was done. GM has stated the warranty has expired. I feel that the leak in the neck of the fuel tank is a manufactures defect as there is no known reason for a crack to happen in the fuel tank. Like I said previously I have found numerous reports of this happening to others with the same vehicle. I feel that it is a safety concern and fear the possibilities of what could happen to my vehicle with myself and young children in the vehicle until I am able to afford to replace the fuel tank. I would appreciate this being looked in to and the safety around the defect.

2004 GMC Envoy, well maintained at 158,000 miles began to emit an odor of gasoline. At first it was only slightly noticeable, but overtime it's become very noticeable. Interior and exterior of the car smells like gasoline. No gasoline is leaked, only fumes are emitted. Took it to a local repair shop and they state that there is a crack on the inlet of the fuel tank. Repair shop stated my model is not covered by the recall issued for Envoy XL of the same year, but stated it is exactly the same issue and that I should file a complaint here. Estimate cost of repair $1000+.

Check engine light diagnosed as dtc code P0442 (evap leak). Smoke test revealed crack in fuel tank assembly where filler neck hose meets the fuel tank. GMC issued a bulletin no.: 05-06-04-014A on March 21, 2005 regarding the above referenced dtc code and its possible connection to a fracture in the fuel tank, but has not issued a recall or other remedy for this defect. Vehicle is unsafe due to fuel tank fracture. In addition, vehicle cannot be registered because it cannot pass smog test with check engine light on. Cost for repair is $1,300-$1,500.

A very strong odor of gasoline is inside and outside of my car. When the car is started and being driven the smell is most heaviest. After driving and it sits, you can continue to smell the gas fumes. I took my vehicle to a certified dealership to find out the problem and a diagnostic was done. Unfortunately, I was told that the problem could not be detected. I continue to be afraid that maybe my can is going to catch on fire or explode at any time. After doing my research, I have found that there are many owners of GMC Envoy with this same problem. Some of the models have been recalled, but this issue reaches far beyond those models. All make and models with this problem should be recalled.

There is a strong gasoline smell inside and outside the vehicle. The check engine light is on and the code is indicating some type of vapor/emissions problem. I took the vehicle to 2 different mechanics and they both found that the fuel tank filler area has a vapor and liquid leak. There is a tsb issued by GMC that covers this situation but they will only honor it on vehicles prior to 2004.
