The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says 9,389 vans were recalled in the United States and 926 in Canada. The affected vans have "60/40" swing-out driver side doors.
The recall covers the vans sold and currently registered in the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia and Wisconsin. The recall also includes Washington D.C.
U.S. safety regulators said there is a higher risk of fire if the pipe that carries gasoline has become corroded by road salt used to melt snow and ice-covered roads.
GM says water and the road contaminants may become trapped in the protective conduit that covers the fuel filler pipe, causing the vans' pipes to corrode.
No injuries or fires have been reported as a result of this issue, GM said.
GM said owners already have been notified that they can bring their vehicles to dealers for repairs if necessary. Dealers will install a new fuel filler neck assembly free of charge.
Owners in the affected states may contact the Chevrolet owner center at 1-866-694-6546 and GMC at 1-866-996-9463 for more information.
