Fuel Tank Leaks, Allows Over Fueling Of The Vehicle

Recall Details

A control valve for the fuel tank can become cracked or broken, allowing debris into the tank, allowing the vehicle to be over fueled, and also causing fuel to leak out during a rollover crash. Dealers will inspect the fuel tank and replace the fuel tank and sending unit as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The fuel tank control valve can become cracked or broken, resulting in the vehicle leaking fuel during a rollover accident. The valve can also allow for over fueling of the vehicle, or allowing debris inside the fuel tank. Fuel leaks can be a fire or slip hazard.
