Summary of Complaint

WHEN I FILL UP MY 2011 GLK 350 WITH GAS I HAVE A VERY STRONG RAW GAS SMELL FROM THE VEHICLE. IT IS SO BAD THAT I AM AFRAID IT WILL CAUSE A FIRE INSIDE MY GARAGE. IT GOES AWAY AS THE FUEL IS RUN OUT OF THE VEHICLE. I CHECK WITH MERCEDES AND WITH MY VIN # IT WAS NOT ON A RECALL LIST HOWEVER MANY OTHER GLK 350 WERE ON A RECALL LIST FOR THE SAME PROBLEM. IT IS RECALL 12V557000. I FEEL MERCEDES SHOULD COVER ALL 2011 GLK 350 FOR THIS ISSUE AS IT IS A DEFINITE SAFETY ISSUE WITH RAW GAS LEAKING. IT WAS ALSO IN A BULLETIN SENT TO DEALERS ABOUT THIS ISSUE. NHTSA ID 10059568. IT IS A LEAKING FUEL FILTER FLANGE. IT IS ALSO A VERY DANGEROUS PROBLEM!! THE FIX FOR IT IS REPLACE THE FUEL FILTER FLANGE AND PLASTIC PUMP ALSO NORMALLY AT A COST OF $1200.00 AT THE DEALER. MERCEDES NEEDS TO RECALL ALL 2011-2012 GLK 350 FOR THIS ISSUE IN MY OPINION.
