Re: gas cap warning
Not nessecarily. See, a TSB isnt a recall, its a notice to dealers that helps them identify common problems and shortcut troubleshooting time. It does not mean theres a defect with the car, but there has been enough reports of this that DCX wants to let dealers know that when they DO see this issue, the most common reason is whatever is in the TSB
I have not fueled up an LX, so I cant speak to the design, but if DCX discovers that %99 of all reported fuel warning lights are caused by folks not getting a good seal, the TSB might explain that, and direct the service folks to teach the customer how to ensure a tight seal.
Or, if its common that the gasket gets twisted or lost, that might be the meat of the TSB. Do we have anyone with access to the TSBs that can give us the meat of it?
