Gas leak/Gas smell in car
Our 3 1/2 year old versa started having gas fumes in the car last October...we took it to our dealership and they discovered a leak in the O ring of the gas tank and replaced it for a couple hundred dollars. We have continued to smell gas in the car for the last 6 months, bringing it back to the dealership for the 6th time yesterday (each time saying there is no reason for the smell). Yesterday they found the source of the problem is the 'fuel sending unit' is cracked and it will be $500 to repair (though they are going to give us a slight discount- down to 412$). They also stated that the car is not safe to drive! Thank God that we did not have an accident. So, for 6 months we have driven this car, with our child in the car, and it has not been safe. I've contacted Nissan Corporate Consumer Affairs, but what I want to know is this: Is there anyone else out there that may be having the same problem? 3 years old seems to me to be a pretty young car to have a major problem like this. I read the post about the exhaust fumes, wonder if could be related?
