2003 Buick Rendezvous Owner Comments

problem #2

Oct 092014

Rendezvous 6-cyl

  • 96,190 miles


Filled tank and parked in garage. Next morning garage had extremely strong gasoline fumes. Backed car into driveway. Found fuel on garage floor. It was running out of the tank at the junction of the fuel line to the gas tank. It appeared to be the seal between the fuel line (where the gas runs down into the tank when you fill it) and the tank, the intake valve. The leak was severe and dangerous, too dangerous to drive to the dealer 30 minutes away. Choose to drive it to a local garage for repair. The fuel tank and fuel pump seal were replace at a cost of $936. There is an NHTSA campaign id # 09V349000 on this issue. On the GM recall site, there are no recalls listed. We called the Buick number listed and were told that there was no recall, but the issue is being escalated for review. This is a potentially disastrous situation, potential file or explosion hazard.

2003 Buick Rendezvous. The vehicle was taken to dealer for 30,000 miles service. When the vehicle left the service department consumer drove the vehicle 8 miles and there was fuel all over the road. Also, there were fumes in the vehicle. The vehicle was then towed back to the dealership. The dealership replaced the parts when they did the maintenance. They stated it was not a recalled item for the vehicle. The manager of the service department stated it was a faulty fuel filter. This occurred August 8, 2005, the fuel filter was replaced and the problem has not occurred again. The fire and police departments responded.
