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.

The vehicle has a strong smell of gas but it doesn't have a recall for the gas tank that previous models have had. The auto mechanic stated that it was a problem from the dealership and that it may have been recalled for possible gas leak around the tank.

I have leaks in my fuel line and gas tank. One of the leaks is right beside the exhaust system. I know this was cause for recall I'm some states. Why not all states. It's a serious hazard and should be covered under a recall. There's fuel leaking onto the ground.

I have a fuel line leak between the driver side door and the rear wheel well. The check engine light is on at the engine is difficult to start. Now there is fuel leaking onto the ground. I would like to know if this will be covered under a recall.

On October 2, 2015 when I picked up my vehicle, I asked shawn thomas if they had reprogramed my door to work with the new ignition cylinder that was replaced last time it was in for that recall. When I picked up my car from that recall service, they gave me my original Pontiac key and 2 new keys to the ignition. When I dripped it off for the most recent recall (fuel pump leak, fuel tank leak), I was told they should have reprogramed my doors to go with the new ignition and they would do that while it was in this time. It was on my receipt that they did reprogram but they did not. They made me another key for the ignition (not sure why I would need another ignition key. So now I have 3 ignition keys and 2 door keys (5 total keys) and 2 key fobs with remote start that was a feature that I had purchased originally when purchasing my car that no longer work since the ignition cylinder had to be replaced. When I asked shawn if it was reprogramed he told me yes that is what the receipt said. When I got to my car, it clearly had not been reprogramed and when I went in to ask shawn about it, he went and called the ┐manager┐ who said that they talked to me and told me that there would be a charge if they reprogramed it. I never had this conversation and the recall clearly states that they will reprogram my doors to go with my ignition and the fobs should be programed for remote start as well as that is a feature I had. Shawn told me it would be 2 hours labor because they have to take door panel apart and it was $165/hr. That would be $357.23 with tax for something there should not be a charge for under recall. Please see recall information attached.

A few months ago I started to smell fuel after I parked my car and noticed a leak in the lines. The lines were indeed rusted out and I had them replaced. Now a few days ago I noticed it again but this time it was coming from the fuel tank. I saw that there was a recall for this problem, however I am not in one of the states that it was issued in. This is a big problem and I have seen a lot of people online complaining about this issue and the recall should be nationwide as it is a rather large safety concern.

After shutting off vehicle, the cooling fans would engage. They would continue to run for 15-20 mins regardless of engine temp or run time. This was the first indication that something was wrong. Shortly after that the car would not start due to lack of power from battery. I had a diagnostic check run on system that showed that most parts of the electrical system had some type of error or another. I replaced the battery due to a bad cell and re-ran diagnostic. Shows that the computer was not operating correctly which was tripping the rest of the error messages. Would this be a factory defect for the computer?

I noticed a strong gas smell while the vehicle was off and while driving. I took it to a repair shop and they said I have a gas leak. I see that there was a recall for gas leaks in warm weather states for a gas leak issue. I live in Colorado and was never notified of the issue. I think it may be related to the recall.

Seems to me searching online its a common thing to have the gas tank crack. There are a bunch of recalls already for the car one including the fuel system but they will only replace the gas pump which had to be replaced because it was defective but wanted to charge over 1,000 for the cracked fuel tank which by the way how does that happen on a pretty recent car and I am not alone. The smell its pretty strong and I am sure its not safe been looking for one through junkers because I cant afford the 1000 for something that came defective.

The vehicle started smelling like gas, but I didn't notice any puddles or leaking. I took the vehicle to a mechanic who confirmed there was a leak near the fuel pump, and had to replace the part right away due to the potential fire hazard. After doing some research, it appears this vehicle did have a recall in a few states nearby for a faulty return port on the fuel pump, which could cause a fuel leak. Based on this information, and the potential for fire and/or injury, I feel additional investigations are warranted into vehicles located in other states.
