Notes: Chrysler has taken the boring small car frame of the Neon, grafted a 1930s-era roadster body on top and named it the PT Cruiser. While the new look may appeal to some, the vehicle has unfortunately also inherited many of the same problems as the Neon.

I smelled gasoline and discovered a puddle of gas under my 2001 PT CRUISER. When I took it into the dealership they indicated that there was a crack in the neck leading from the gas tank and the tank would have to be replaced. There is nothing in my driving that would have caused this. I am concerned that this apparent defect may occur on more than just my car and may be a problem with other similar vehicles with 42,000 miles on them. The dealership had also done recall work at a different location on this gas tank and the problem may have something to do with the care they took doing the recall work. The crack in the tank when viewed is between a plastic 2.5" dia. Tube piece in the upper corner of the tank and the tank itself, this tube piece is a separate piece they has been attached to the plastic tank. The seal between the two had been broken is some way.
