Exclamation 06 07 Chevy Cobalt RECALL.. Could Be a Serious Problem

i work at a shop and we get this automotive magazine everymonth that has some update's on recalls and this and that and what not and i came across this in the magazine as i was flipping thru the pages and while it doesnt seem serious i'm sure given the right enviroment and conditions could be potentially harmful

I've already had this fixed.

If you start smelling gas after you get out of your car, the fuel lines could be cracking.

Get to the dealer soon. I drove with it cracked for a couple months, but there is no need to risk it if you can get it fixed. I couldn't get to the dealer for a while...
