 Smelling gasoline when car was parked in garage. the smell was variable but seemed to be stronger when weather was hot. i checked the fuel injectors to be certain no o-ring was leaking. none were leaking but i noticed small amount of gasoline on the valve cover on the valve cover closet to the firewall. checking i found that by depressing the quick connect between the fuel line and the fuel rail i could make a small amount of gasoline escape. looking at the engine cover (large plastic cover with v-6 3.8l on it) that there was an indent in the insulation where this was pressing on the fuel line. i removed the cover and have driven for 1 week without the gasoline smell. i have ordered a replacement quick connect. *tr

 2000 pontiac grand prix gtp began to smoke from engine compartment while driving in slow traffic. pulled over and opened the hood to discover a small fire around the oil fill tube about the size on a baseball cap. hood insulation on driver side was also on fire but had never been oil soaked? fire melted plastic cover and damaged some wires and modules as it spread to entire engine compartment in seconds, even after closing hood. hood was again lifted approximately 1 minute from initial fire discovery and fire was extinguished quickly by passing truck driver with extinguisher. a few more minutes elapsed before fire department arrived it was then noted by myself that the gas line at the rear of the engine was still emitting a fine stream of gasoline as i had not yet turned the ignition off. it was also in this general location that the hood insulation material was burning (a non flammable material by itself). to date no repairs have been made as this happened yesterday 12/18/07. *tr

 My car caught fire 6-5-03. general motors sent an investigator out. on 7-2-03 i received a call from gm. they told me the report was my problem they would not take any responsibilty for the fire. i drove my car aprox. 15 miles that morning to my kids daycare. i pulled up to the front of the daycare and cut the car off and it started smoking and flames came from under the hood. everything under the hood is melted no brake lines, fuel line or wires. i have not done anything to the car but change the oil. the oil was last changed aprox. two months before that. cars are not designed to just catch fire. i put my kids and a daycare full of kids in jeopardy that day. just to add a little to my complaint. i have left about 6 messages since july 3 for the gm rep, kevin drew, to call me without success. when i purchased my car it only had 51,000 miles. i had trouble with bill heard dealership from day i drove the car off the lot it had problems. it took 4 months (1) the pistons was making awful noise. (2) the security light was flashing (3) the cig. lighter had a burning smell when pushed in. i have a copy of the complaints , findings and action taken on a service report provided by bill heard. in that report it states that they found burnt and melted wire they removed the wiring harness and replaced wires. i left a message for kevin drew asking him to call me because i know for a fact that the wire going to the fuse box was melted. everything under the hood is melted no wires, brake line or fuel line exist anymore. the region of the fire is the area of all the wires, computer box etc. in the middle of the hood at the center up toward the top close to the windshield.. this happened at a daycare. i was parked no more than 3 feet from the building.

 I feel this vehicle has numerous safety defects. this car is to new to have had the items listed replaced. unfortuneately the dealer cannot duplicate the problem with the acceleration. my children are very important to me and i will be trading this vehicle off very soon. i have asked 3 times for a component box and knowone can seem to locate one. i feel the dealership is falling short on their part of obligated 36 months or 36,000 miles. this is the response i am getting from pontiac. unfortuneately alabama is the only state that i know of that does not have a lemon law. is there any other options that a consumer has and if there is what are they?

 There have been more than i can count on both hands to the incidents that this care has stalled. it happens unexpectantly and i never know when it is gonna happen, but it always seems to happen when i am in the middle of traffic. so, i have to pull over and try and start the car. which it will start then sputter and stall and die. it has had a new computer, 2 new fuel pumps, fuel resistor, fuel relay switches, starter, supercharger, 2 fuse boxes which are a discontinued part that has to come from an auto wrecker, and recently a wire that was frayed behind the fuse box that had something to do with the fuel system. all this has been done within the last 10 months since we purchased the car on payments on june 1, 2009. needless to say i am not sure as of this last repair if it has corrected the problem. my main concern is if i were driving on a windy mountainous road with no turnouts and the car decided it wanted to stall, where would i go or do. because a car or big rig could be coming around the turn and not even know i was stopped. my life and any other drivers or passengers would be in jeapordy of being injured and/or killed. this car to me is very unsafe and i am stuck with payments and don't know what to do about the problems we have had or even if it has been resolved.
