When pulling into parking space or backing out of garage can feel gasoline moving back and forth in the fuel tank. Also, when entering the trunk or leaning against the vehicle can feel gasoline moving back and forth. Contacted the dealer, and dealer changed fuel tank. The replacement tank has the same problem as the original.

Re: your ODI#550849 and ODI#856909 - I too experience gas sloshing in fuel tank and the feeling of being tapped on the rear bumper, or perhaps a bowling ball rolling around in the trunk, when stopping. -dealer advised us that the "bellows" "?" in the gas tank may have separated and advised us to return vehicle with empty fuel tank so that it could be removed and examined.
