Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Was refueling car at gas station and after about a gallon or two the gas started spurting back at me.the tank wasn't full, the pump did not stop. This has been an ongoing problem since Feb 2014. Purchased car used from dealer. When I called service center, gentleman said there were no recalls on this vehicle. I have read many posts where the very same thing happens on this same make/ model.

When pumping gas if I do not stop before tank is full, the pump will stop and when I pull out of tank, gas erupts out of gas cap. It does not leak, it sprays and overflows crazy. For awhile it was not all the time, now it does it consistently and even though I have checked and purchased new gas caps since that what I was told was issue, it still does. Check engine will be on as well as gas cap message in odometer.

I was putting gas in the car and all of a sudden, the gas if shooting back on me. I was on my way to work and had to go home and change because I had gas all over me, the car and the ground. I don't have money to dry clean my clothing. It is also a hazard and I am not pleased at all.

Aspen 4WD 8-cyl

  • 58,000 miles
Every time I fill my fuel tank, approx. One gallon of gasoline shoots back out. I get covered in gasoline, along with the side of the vehicle and ground, causing a very hazardous situation. Any type of spark could cause me to go on fire, as well as the car and fueling station. This needs to be addressed by the manufacturer. How many people need to complain before someone gets injured or killed. I have personally viewed thousands of the same complaint.

On multiple accounts, gas spits out after fueling. This began approximately around Dec. 2013 and continues to become more aggravating over time as it continues to do this every time I fill up.
