FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

7/21/2016 - FLOVILLA, GA
ABOUT 30 MINUTES AFTER REFUELING I NOTICED A STRONG FUEL INSIDE AND AROUND THE VEHICLE. THE FIRST TIME I DIDN'T THINK MUCH OF IT THINKING THE MAYBE FUEL SPILLED DOING REFUELING. ON THE NEXT FILL UP I NOTICED THE SAME ODOR. THIS TIME I DECIDED TO CHECK TO SEE WHERE THE ODOR WAS COMING FROM. WHILE PARKED, I NOTICED FUEL WAS LEAKING FROM UNDER THE CAR NEAR THE REAR RIGHT PASSENGER DOOR. IT WAS A CONTINUOUS DRIP. I CALLED THE DEALERSHIP ABOUT THE ISSUE AND TO SEE IF THERE HAS BEEN OTHER COMPLAINTS/ RECALLS. THEY STATED THAT THEY WAS NOT AWARE OF THIS PROBLEM. THEN I RESEARCHED ONLINE AND FOUND OUT THAT THERE HAD BEEN OTHER COMPLAINTS OF THE SAME PROBLEM. THIS IS A VERY SERIOUS PROBLEM AND NEED IMMEDIATE ATTENTION. THIS PROBLEM COULD CAUSE SOME SERIOUS INJURY OR EVEN DEATH. DUE TO THE COST OF THE REPAIR, I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO GET THIS FIX. I HAVE NOTICED AS LONG AS I DIDN'T FILL THE TANK PASS 3/4 TANK, THE FUEL DOESN'T LEAK. PLEASE LOOK INTO THIS MATTER!
