Summary:

Water and road contaminants may become trapped in the protective conduit that covers the fuel filler pipe and may cause the pipe to corrode.

Significant corrosion may allow fuel to leak during refueling, and in the presence of an ignition source; there is an increased risk of fire.

Remedy:

GM will notify owners, and dealers will install a new fuel filler neck, free of charge. GM has not provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact the Chevrolet owner center at 1-866-694-6546 and GMC at 1-866-996-9463.
