2005 Chevrolet Suburban Owner Comments

problem #3

Gas leaked from fuel lines which were crossed when vehicle was built as result rubbing occurred and lines ruptured causing fuel to leak out. Went to dealer first time this happened and wouldn't admit this is why the leak happened originally. Husband has patched a few times now while we wait for new gas lines to come from GM becaus we refuse to go to dealer and use our own garage. Hope new law goes into effect regarding that as well. Very dissatisfied and it looks like there was another complaint about this. Will not buy Chevy ever again.

The contact owns a 2005 Chevrolet Suburban 1500. While the contact was driving she smelled fuel. When she reached her destination, she noticed that fuel was spilling outside the vehicle onto the ground. Thirty seconds after turning the vehicle off, the fuel stopped leaking. The vehicle was taken to two repairs shops where the contact was informed that the fuel pressure line from the tank to the crossover and the motor had rubbed together which caused the failure to occur. The vehicle was not repaired. The contact called the manufacturer who advised her to report the problem to NHTSA. The current and failure mileages were approximately 140,000.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles
The contact owns a 2005 Chevrolet Suburban. The contact stated that when she walked around the vehicle he smelled gasoline and couldn't tell where it was coming from, but noticed that there was a leak underneath the vehicle. The vehicle was inspected by a dealer who informed the contact that the odor came from a fracture in the fuel lines. The mechanic advised the contact to leave his vehicle because driving the vehicle was causing the fuel lines to rub together. The fuel lines were repaired from the front and rear of the vehicle. The failure mileage was approximately 70,000. Updated 5/2/11 updated 05/16/11
