Recall Alert: 2003-04 Chevy Express, GMC Savana

2003-savana
GM is recalling 9,389 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana vans from the 2003-04 model years because the fuel filler pipe might corrode, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The recall affects Express and Savana vehicles that are equipped with a left-side cargo door and originally sold or 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.

Water and road contaminants can become trapped in the conduit that covers the fuel filler pipe and may cause the pipe to corrode, NHTSA says. Significant corrosion could lead to a fuel leak, increasing the risk of a fire. If a fuel leak occurs, drivers may smell fuel, and the check engine light may illuminate on some vehicles.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will install a new fuel filler neck for free. Owners can call GM at 866-694-6546, GMC at 866-996-9463 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
