FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE

12/27/2010 - EL PASO, TX
CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ILLUMINATED ON INSTRUMENT CLUSTER. DIAGNOSTICS INDICATED A CODE PO 442. THIS CODE IS INDICATIVE OF A FUEL SYSTEM LEAK IN THE EVAPORATIVE EMISSION SYSTEM. REPLACED GAS CAP. PROBLEM NOT RESOLVED. FILLED VEHICLE WITH GASOLINE IN OCTOBER 2010 AND SEVERAL TIMES SINCE. STRONG ODOR OF GASOLINE IS PRESENT. EACH TIME FUEL NOZZLE FAILS TO SHUT OFF FUEL FROM GASOLINE PUMP AND GASOLINE IS SPILLED ON THE GROUND NEAR DRIVER SIDE REAR DOOR CREATING AN ENVIRONMENTAL AND MAJOR SAFETY HAZARD. VEHICLE NEVER IN ACCIDENT OR MODIFIED IN ANY WAY. VEHICLE HAS 62,000 MILES. A COURTESY GENERAL MOTORS REPAIR PROGRAM IS IN PLACE FOR THESE VEHICLES IF THE LONG WHEELBASE MODELS. NUMEROUS OCCURRENCES IN THE SHORT WHEELBASE MODELS ALSO. THIS IS A KNOWN DEFECT ACCORDING TO THE GM DEALER THAT SERVICES THE VEHICLE, BUT THEY WANT OVER $1500 TO REPLACE THE FUEL TANK AND THE TANK UNIT WHICH INCLUDES THE FUEL PUMP, GAUGE, AND HOSE CONNECTIONS. THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THIS WILL FIX THE DIAGNOSTIC CODE THAT SETS THE CHECK ENGINE LAMP, OR THE PROBLEM OF GASOLINE LEAKAGE/SPILLAGE. THE VEHICLE WILL NOT PASS A STATE SAFETY INSPECTION AND THEREFORE IS NOT ALLOWED ON THE ROAD. A FORCED RECALL SHOULD ABSOLUTELY BE MADE FOR THESE VEHICLES. AT A COST OF OVER $35,000 FOR THIS VEHICLE, AND THE HAZARDS IT REPRESENTS, IT IS A TOTAL TRAVESTY THAT GM REFUSES TO STAND BEHIND THEIR PRODUCT.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

12/14/2010 - RALSTON, NE
I HAVE A 2003 GMC ENVOY. AT FIRST MY RPM NEEDLE STARED TO MOVE UP FASTER THEN WHAT I WAS GOING FOR ABOUT A MONTH. WHEN I SHUT THE ENGINE OFF IT SOUNDED LIKE IT WAS LETTING OUT A VACUUM NOISE. NOW IT'S BEEN A MONTH AND A HALF AND MY MPH IS NOT WORKING. IT SEEMS TO BE STUCK ON 80 MPS WHILE I'M SETTING AND GOES PAST 120 WHILE I'M DRIVING. ALSO THE GAS GAGE IS NOT WORKING RIGHT. IT DOESN'T REGISTER THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF GAS THAT'S IN THE TANK. I HOPE SOON THERE WILL BE A RECALL ON THE ELECTRICAL CLUSTER, BECAUSE EACH GAGE IS GOING OUT ONE BY ONE. I HOPE THIS WOULD BE A VEHICLE SAFETY HAZARD SINCE YOU NEED TO KNOW WHAT SPEED YOU ARE GOING. THANK YOU

STRONG SMELL OF FUEL COMING FROM BEHIND THE DRIVER SIDE REAR DOOR. CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON WHEN CODE IS CHECKED... STATES SMALL EMISSION LEAK PRESENT. UPON DOING A LITTLE WEB RESEARCH FIND IT TO BE CAUSED BY A LEAKING FUEL TANK. APPEARS TO HAVE A RECALL ON TANK FOR XL MODEL WHICH INTURN IS THE SAME TANK BUT THE SLE MODEL IS NOT COVERED UNDER RECALL. IF ORIGINAL RECALL WAS ISSUED FOR SAFETY CONCERN WHY NOT COMPLY FOR ALL MODELS.

VEHICLE IS A 2003 GMC ENVOY. GAS FUMES WERE NOTICED COMING FROM THE REAR OF THE VEHICLE. ALSO, CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON. TOOK VEHICLE TO GM DEALER AND WAS TOLD THAT THERE WAS A CRACK IN THE PLASTIC GAS TANK NEAR THE FILLER NECK. WAS TOLD THAT GM HAS BEEN HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THIS BUT NO RECALLS OR REPAIR BULLETINS. THEREFORE, SINCE VEHICLE WAS OUT OF WARRANTY I WOULD HAVE TO PAY $1350.00 FOR REPAIRS. I SEE THIS AS A SAFETY ISSUE. GM SHOULD BE RECALLING THESE PLASTIC GAS TANKS AND REPLACING THEM AT NO COST TO THE CUSTOMER AS THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE. THE VEHICLE COULD CATCH ON FIRE! NOTE: VEHICLE WAS NOT IN ANY TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS OR USED FOR OFF-ROAD DRIVING OR ABUSED IN ANY WAY. GAS TANK SHOULD NOT HAVE CRACKED. ALSO, I HAVE SEEN MANY OTHER SIMILAR COMPLAINTS ON THE INTERNET IDENTICAL TO THIS ONE SO IT IS A COMMON PROBLEM TO THE ENVOY AND TRAILBLAZER FAMILY.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM: INSTRUMENT PANEL

8/31/2010 - CINCINNATI, OH
2003 GMC ENVOY. THE SPEEDOMETER ONLY WORKS INTERMITTENTLY. IT MAY STICK IN ONE SPOT. OTHER TIMES IT IS CONSISTENTLY OFF BY A GIVEN SPEED. THE NEXT DAY IT MAY BE WORKING FINE. THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR OVER A YEAR AND SEEMS TO BE OCCURRING MORE FREQUENTLY AS THE VEHICLE AGES. THE INTERNET IS LITTERED WITH OTHERS ALL HAVING THE SAME ISSUE. IT LOOKS LIKE A US DISTRICT COURT AWARDED OWNERS OF MANY OTHER GM MODELS WITH THE SAME ISSUE A SETTLEMENT (SEE HTTP://WWW.GMSPEEDOMETERRECALL.COM/). THE ENVOY WAS NOT INCLUDED, ALTHOUGH THE ISSUE IS THE SAME. COST FOR REPAIRING IS APPARENTLY IN THE $700 RANGE. AS FOR CONSEQUENCES, I SEE 2 POSSIBILITIES. I COULD RECEIVE AN UNWARRANTED SPEEDING TICKET. THE OTHER CONSEQUENCE IS THE MAJOR DISTRACTION IT CAUSES. THE ONLY WAY TO TELL IF IT IS WORKING AT TIMES IS TO WATCH IT CLOSELY. IF THE NEEDLE ISN'T MOVING WHEN I ACCELERATE I KNOW NOT TO TRUST IT. DRIVERS SHOULDN'T BE STARING AT THEIR SPEEDOMETER WHEN DRIVING.

THE CONTACT WAS DISPLEASED WITH THE RESPONSE FROM THE MANUFACTURER. THE VEHICLE WAS NOT REPAIRED. THERE WAS CONCERN OF A POTENTIAL SAFETY HAZARD. THE FAILURE MILEAGE WAS APPROXIMATELY 60,000.
