On many occasions, since we purchased this 2014 Kia Rio, it has had a horrible, intense odor of gasoline that is so strong it overwhelms anyone near it. It starts after 20-30 minutes of driving. I have taken it to the dealer 4 or 5 times and the workers can not find anything wrong with it. One one occasion, the mechanics changed something called the purge canister but the problem continues. I read on the NHTSA that at least two other car owners complained of the same. I have a new born and a 7 year old and I no longer feel safe in this car.the car was purchased for my daughter who has two

Pumping gas into gas tank and the gas was on the ground because the gas tank was never sealed was riding the car for 10 days and the original gas that was put in the car from dealer so the 1st time putting gas in the tank the gas was pouring out and loss the $23 worth of gas but I could have lost my life leaving the dealership because there was no warning from car about any gas leak issue or faulty gas line or tank not sealed this is dangerous and this was 2014 Kia Rio LX.
