Aug. 14, 2012—General Motors recalled its 2003–2004 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana vans that are equipped with a left-side cargo door. Water and road contaminants might become trapped in the protective conduit that covers the fuel-filler pipe and might cause the pipe to corrode. Significant corrosion might allow fuel to leak during refueling and increase the risk of fire in the presence of an ignition source.
The vehicles that are involved in this recall originally were sold or are registered in District of Columbia and the following states: Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
GM will notify owners, and dealers will install a new fuel-filler neck free.
Owners may call Chevrolet at 866/694-6546 or GMC at 866/996-9463. Owners also may call National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888/327-4236 or go to safercar.gov.
