    Typical.
    I would Never buy another GM auto, after this incident on an auto I owned.
    I would suggest you go to car complaints on the web and post your problems.

    Why is the owner responsible for half the cost of the repair? This is not justified especially when accidents have been caused by this faulty fuel level sensor.

    @jeep, I'm just guessing on this, but I suspect there are two reasons:

    1. The specific warranty that would cover repair has expired, and the NHTSA didn't see the issue as pressing enough to warrant a full vehicle recall.

    2. The design is from the "old GM," and the "new GM" is not responsible for design flaws. They are responsible for warranty coverage on defective parts, but I suspect any warranty has expired. Besides, the "new GM" would argue that it was the design, not a single part, that was flawed.

    Justified or not, the NHTSA ended its inquiry when GM agreed to subsidize the repairs. If I owned one of the affected vehicles, would I be happy with that? Absolutely not.
