Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
when coming to a stop after a short (or long) drive, a strong odor of exhaust gas or raw gas smell enters the passenger area. dealer cannot smell or detect leaks despite numerous visits - what could it be? Also, I've had numerous front end problems - front pads had to be replaced at 25,000 miles, tires replaced at 26,000; rotors turned; bad left frnt strut replaced; ball joints replaced; frt wheel bearings, squeaky steering column lubbed 4 times. what is wrong with this car?!

I had a tuneup two weeks ago and am having the same problem as you described. Am calling crysler for an answer
Opps, you had numerous problems. Anyhow I was referring to the gas odor, especially after stopping, starting the car after being off a couple mintes, etc. This never happend until the tuneup. It's in the shop today. Other then that this may well be the greatest car I have ever owned. Purchased new, almost 90K Miles now and the brakes, never touched are still like new. No one, including myself can believe it. I had the tuneup because I was going on vacation from NY to Texas and thought perhaps it was time. That was the 1st time I put a dime in to the car. If that car was a woman I'd marry it! Sorry to hear you've had so many problems. Hope everything works out for you.

I have an 07 Charger and just started to notice a raw gas smell strong on the passanger side of the car. My husband works at a Dodge dealer and none of the mechanics have ever seen this problem before. No leak has been found and my husband decided to have a fuel line replaced just to be safe, but that made no difference. We are 2500 miles away from our first tune-up, so we plan on taking it back in next. I will keep you posted if we are able to figure out what the issue is. Sucks to smell gas at every stop light!
