TWO RELATED PROBLEMS. FIRST, SIX MONTHS AGO, RODENTS GOT INTO ENGINE COMPARTMENT AND CHEWED INTO THE INSULATED LINER OF THE HOOD. FRAGMENTS WERE DANGLING INTO ENGINE WHEN I FOUND IT BEFORE ANY PROBLEMS BUT REPAIR WAS $400+. LAST WEEK, FILLING GASTANK, A GALLON OF FUEL SPILLED ON GROUND IMMEDIATELY. ATTENDANT SUPERVISING STATION SPOTTED IT AND HIT THE CUTOFF. DEALER FOUND THAT RODENT HAD CHEWED HOLE IN FILLER TUBE. FOR 35 YEARS, I HAVE PARKED MANY CARS IN THIS RURAL NEIGHBORHOOD WITH WILDLIFE. MANY SQUIRRELS AND CHIPMUNKS. NEVER HAD A PROBLEM UNTIL THIS VEHICLE. ONE EPISODE OF ROGUE RODENT UNDER THE HOOD MIGHT HAPPEN. TWO IN LESS THAN A YEAR, AT BOTH ENDS OF THE CAR, BOTH IN TEMPERATE WEATHER MAKES ME WONDER IF THERE IS SOMETHING IN THESE MATERIALS THAT ATTRACTS RODENTS. THESE WEREN'T CATASTROPHIC BUT BOTH EVENTS HAD THE POTENTIAL FOR GREAT CHAOS. I HAVE DOCUMENTATION OF THE REPAIRS IF YOU NEED THEM.
