Looking at the 3 previous complaints on this site I now have my 2005 Rendezvous at a dealer in Fremont ,Ne been there for 3 days no answers. We can not continue to be exposed to such raw gasoline smells. Did anyone ever figure out what is the problem and been able to fix it????? XXX XXXXX, XXXXX, XX

If you go here, http://www.safercar.gov/Vehicle+Owners/ and search recalls, the first one is about the fuel pressure regulator missing an o-ring and leaking.

Was you aware of that? Was that taken care of?

I see 3 complaints too on gas smells and 2 are even about that recall.

NHTSA ID Number: 10481641

I RECENTLY SLIGHTLY PASSED OUT AND CRASHED IN THE CAR DUE TO BEING OVERCOME BY THE INTENSIVE RAW GAS FUMES.

NHTSA ID Number: 10448209

A FUEL LEAK OCCURRED WHILE IDLING WITH THE GAS RUNNING BACK TOWARD AND UNDER THE DRIVER NEAR THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER.

NHTSA ID Number: 10442002

UPON STARTING THE VEHICLE, RAW GAS FUMES ENTER THE CAB IN SUCH QUANTITIES THAT MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE TO DRIVE COMFORTABLY OR SEEMINGLY SAFELY. THE FUME CAN BE SO BAD THAT ALL WINDOWS MUST BE OPENED AND HEADS HELD OUTSIDE OF THE CAR TO BREATHE FRESH AIR. MY HUSBAND DRIVING BEHIND ME ON THE FREEWAY CAN SOMETIMES ALSO SMELL THE RAW GASOLINE ODOR.

NHTSA Campaign Number: 07E021000
