Letter from Pontaic about Gas Cap

Hi,

I received a letter from Pontiac today concerning the gas cap.
If the cap goes bad, it will be covered for 10 years or 120,000 miles,
and repaired free of charge.
You may also get a reimbursement, if you have already replaced it
yourself.

The Gas Cap extension warranty has been added to the 05' Model Year. I received my notice on Friday the 22nd. As far as 06', stay tuned.

Anyone having a used 04-06 purchased from a non GM Dealer, it may be in your best interest to make sure GM knows you are the owner of that VIN. If GM doesn't know, you may be missing out on updates. Notify a Pontiac dealer and inquire about getting your VIN registered or call GM and go through the necessary steps to get your name on the books as the owner of your VIN.

It won't latch correctly. Will spin and not screw
down to make a seal.

I received the letter on Saturday for my 2005. To this day, I have not had any issues with the gas cap or any associated problems.
