Everybody already knows why a leak in the fuel tank is hazardous. It’s common sense, a flammable liquid seeping out of your car is never a good thing. Unfortunately, this is the reason why the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is holding 33,000 units of 2004 Chevrolet Corvettes under investigation. The Detroit News reported that the NHTSA received a total of 30 complaints from current owners of regarding the leak.
General Motors spokesperson Alad Adler said that the car manufacturer hasn’t received any reports of injuries or accidents caused by this problem yet. However, the car manufacturer will cooperate with the NHSTA fully to solve this issue. In twelve out of the thirty complaints, the fuel tank was the primary cause of the leak. Some of them have been replaced by the owners to remedy the problem.
Although there are no announcements made yet, a quick recall is inevitable if the company wants to prevent further complaints from Chevy owners.
