General Motors is recalling 9389 2003-2004 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana models equipped with a left-side cargo door that were sold in certain cold-weather states. There is a potential problem with corrosion and fuel leakage from the fuel filler neck pipe that could increase the risk of a fire.
The Problem: Models equipped with a left-side cargo door and originally sold and registered in Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and the District of Columbia could be susceptible to road contaminants getting trapped between a protective conduit and the fuel filler pipe, increasing the likelihood of corrosion and a potential fuel leak.
The Fix: GM will notify owners and install a new fuel filler neck at no cost. Owners can contact GM at 866-694-6546 for Chevrolet models, 866-996-9463 for GMC models, or call NHTSA's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236.
