2007 Hyundai Sonata Owner Comments

problem #3

Sonata 4-cyl

Entering the car the interior smelled of gasoline. I drove the car a few miles and once stopped, I could smell the strong odor of gasoline outside of the vehicle. Looking underneath, I saw gasoline dripping to the ground from the front area of the gasoline tank. The car was driven to a mechanic and repaired. The part that failed was from the gasoline line and has a rounded right angle bend in it. Total overall length, including the bend is approx 7 inches. The line had rusted through allowing gasoline to escape the line. The failed part could easily have lead to a fire or catastrophic event.

Addendum to initial complaint 11-15-13 NHTSA id# 10552462 perhaps I did not communicate in detail, my concern was not replacing the fuel pump, it was the fire hazard that was alarming-it was the electrical connector module, top of the fuel pump, it burnt into the F/P and could have ignited, the service mechanic was shocked that I did not have a fire, I was told that another manufacturer had the same problem and put recalls on their vehicles due to this fire hazard..... my intention was to bring attention to the safety department to prevent other vehicle owners from this possible fire hazard.

The car began to lose power and stop running. Upon checking for repair the mechanic found that the wires leading to the fuel pump in the fuel tank were melted and that the fuel pump was encountering electrical shorting. Extreme fire hazard.
