FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE

7/5/2008 - SCOTTSDALE, AZ
I COULD SMELL A GASOLINE ODOR AROUND MY 2003 ENVOY (45,860 MILES). TOOK VEHICLE TO COULTER OF TEMPE (AN AUTHORIZED GM DEALER) AND WAS ADVISED OF A LEAK AT FUEL INLET TO TANK PIPE AREA. WAS TOLD GAS TANK WOULD NEED TO BE REPLACED. GM HAS HAD A SIMILAR PROBLEM WITH THE 2003 ENVOY XLS AND ISSUED A LETTER DATED JUNE 2007 COVERING THE ENTIRE AMOUNT OF REPLACING THESE FUEL TANKS FOR 10 YEARS OR 150,000 MILES. THIS COVERAGE SHOULD BE EXTENDED TO ALL 2003 ENVOYS AND A POSSIBLE RECALL ISSUED AS THIS LEAK AT THE FUEL FILLER NECK SEAM AT THE TANK IS NOT EASILY IDENTIFIED UNLESS VEHICLE IS HOISTED ON A LIFT. THEY DID OFFER US A DEAL WHERE WE WERE CHARGED A WARRANTY DEDUCTIBLE OF $500, BUT I FEEL THIS REPAIR SHOULD HAVE BEEN COVERED IN ITS ENTIRETY.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

6/26/2008 - CALIFON, NJ
SPEEDOMETER DOES NOT WORK ANYMORE. I CAN BE SITTING AT A STOP LIGHT AND THE SPEEDO WILL BE PEGGED AT 120MPH. OR WHEN DRIVING IT WONT MOVE AT ALL. SOMETIMES...I'LL START THE CAR, AND THE SPEED WILL BE SITTING AT 40 MPH. HAS BEEN HAPPENING OFF AND ON SINCE NOVEMBER 2007. THE DEALERSHIP & CUSTOMER ASSISTANCE (800-462-8782) WILL NOT HELP ME. THEY TELL ME I HAVE TO BUY A WHOLE NEW INSTRUMENT CLUSTER ($475+) TO RESOLVE MY PROBLEM. THIS IS A VERY COMMON ISSUE WITH THE FULL SIZE VEHICLES (2003 AND UP). GM HAS ISSUED SPECIAL COVERAGE ADJUSTMENT #07187 ( 9/28/2007) TO REPLACE , FREE OF CHARGE, THIS BAD CLUSTER BUT WON"T FIX THE SAME PROBLEM IN THEIR SMALLER SUV"S.

FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE: STORAGE

3/12/2008 - ST. PETERS, MO
THERE SEEMS TO BE AN OVERWHELMING AMOUNT OF ERROR CODE PO442 IN THE 2003 GMC ENVOY AND CHEVY TRAILBLAZERS. THIS CODE IS A FAULTY GAS TANK THAT OVER TIME DEVELOPS A SMALL LEAK. THE ONLY WAY TO FIX IT IS TO REPLACE THE TANK. THIS COST ANYWHERE BETWEEN $1000 - $1500 TO REPLACE. IF THERE IS A GAS LEAK THERE CAN BE A FIRE!!!
