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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2002 GMC Envoy XL Owner Comments

problem #2

Feb 262007

Envoy XL 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 69,000 miles


2002 GMC Envoy has an ses illumination accompanied by a fuel odor, and/or a few drops of fuel on the ground when refueling the vehicle. This is caused by a fracture of a weld on the fuel tank inlet check valve (icv). The icv is located above the full fuel level. A fracture in this area may allow fuel vapors to pass through and allow droplets of fuel to accumulate on the side of the fuel tank as it passes over the fracture during refueling.

Envoy XL 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Fuel tank has leak at joint where filler pipe and tank join allowing fuel and vapors to escape. Smelled fuel inside the garage. The dealer service manager said that the weld had failed, that it is a manufacturing defect, and that they had replaced the fuel tank for 2 other Envoy for the same failure. There was no prior repair on the fuel tank or removal of the fuel tank.
