Recall Alert: 2009 Hummer H3T

09HummerH3T GM has issued a recall for 1,738 Hummer H3T vehicles from the 2009 model year due to a faulty fuel tank front support strap, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The strap may fracture, leaving the fuel tank supported by only the rear support strap and stone shield. If stress caused either of those to fail, the fuel tank could fall off the vehicle while it’s in motion — a dangerous situation to be sure.

Dealerships will install a new-design fuel tank front support strap to affected vehicles free of charge. Owners can contact Hummer at 800-732-5493 or the NHTSA Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236.

Yes, I would say that is a dangerous situation, having the fuel tank properly supported is really not asking to much from the manufacturer!

Funny how the H3 in the picture looks kinda "fire" color.

Not good for the struggling General. This and the transmission cable recall are "recalling" the GM days of yore.

At least this one is for a model that will probably end up in the hands of very few select buyers (Negative image of the Hummer brand, future death/sale of the brand) so the chances of one of the affected vehicles making it out in the real world before the fix is minimal.
