-the contact stated that he had a problem with smelling fumes from the 2000 Chevrolet Corvette. When approaching the vehicle he could smell the fumes coming from the vehicle. The contact stated that he was informed by the service mechanic at jn Chevrolet, that the right exhaust pipe was too close to fuel tank which caused the tank to heat up and expand, and that caused the smell of gasoline. The contact has had 3 repairs done to the vehicle because of these fumes. They replaced the fuel cap, and the O2 sensor. The contact found out that he needed the fuel tank replaced on 10/20/06. The contact stated that the dealership ordered the tank at that time, and as of 2/16/07 had not received the fuel tank. The contact had called the dealership on a number of occasions, and they continue to tell him the tank hadn't arrived. The contact called the manufacturer and they informed the contact that it shouldn't have taken this long. The current mileage was 40000.

1. the right front wheel weights flew off on the drive home from the dealer after purchase. The rear wheel weights flew off, first the left and then the right, while driving at night, slamming into the inner fender liners. The rear end began to bounce dramatically, as each wheel had over 4 ounces of weights on them. Wheels are the extra cost magnesium wheels. 2. on a trip, the gas gauge suddenly dropped to empty, from 3/4 full, and the dic alarm (low fuel) went on. Pulled into a gas station, thinking I was out of fuel. I could only put in 4 gallons! 3. steering column lock would not release and could not steer car, but car did start and go into gear ! I think this is the most serious failure as one may not notice that the steering column lock was on and actually drive off, but when attempting to turn vehicle could only go straight, as straight into sombody!! help!!!! ref. In EA02-031
