Rendezvous 6-cyl

  • 136,000 miles


Over the past year I have been contacting Buick and delphi about the recall on the fuel system in my 2005 Buick Rendezvous. I recently slightly passed out and crashed in the car due to being overcome by the intensive raw gas fumes. I recently contacted both again and I was told that there is a recall on certain vehicles but my vehicles VIN # is not one identified in the recall. I checked to see if my previous complaint was on file and it was no where to be found. I am making this complaint so before hand so that anyone else with this issue can take it serious and take action right away before they start displaying health related issues like me and my family.

A fuel leak occurred while idling with the gas running back toward and under the driver near the catalytic converter. This could have caused a major fire and loss of life / wife. The Buick mechanic found no O ring in the unit. It was not listed as a GM / Buick recall and they refused to take responsibility for the cost. An internet check found it to be a NHTSA recall (07E021000.) as an "aftermarket equipment by made by delphi." In calling delphi at 877-411-8770, they denied responsibility and liability to replace it. When questioned the customer service representative noted he gets "5 or 6 call day about this defective part."
