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.

If the fuel tank is filled completely fuel will gush out after the gas station fuel pump stops filling. This occurs at all gas sations.

The problem started off with everytime I pump gas and fill the tank, as soon as you remove the pump the gas spews out all over the place. This happened several times at several different gas stations. Suddenly on April 30, 2015 the truck died and would not start. It will cut on and attempt to start but would not stay on. I had the vehicle towed to the dealership and was told that the fuel pump is bad. Funny thing you can't seem to find the fuel pump almost anywhere!!! the Chrysler manufacturer and mopar parts do not have this particular one needed in stock. This seems to be a problem with many of the Chrysler Aspen and the manufacturer should do a recall on this issue!!!

My 2008 Chrysler Aspen has an issue with the fuel tank. When filling the tank, the pump will shut off and gas will come squirting out of tank. This has happened at many different pumps and different gas stations. It seems dangerous to have gas spilling out. It seems to be a common issue for Chrysler and should be addressed. I contacted Chrysler and was told there is no recall for this issue. Any service on gas tank would be customers cost. Not covered in warranty.

When I put fuel in my vehicle it stalls within 5 minutes. It does it once and then doesn't do it again until I fill up the next time. If I fill it before it gets below a half tank it doesn't seem to do it. The problem is I don't always remember to do that and I am worried that the next time it stalls I will be in the middle of an intersection. I have seen where other Chrysler with V8 hemi engines are covered under warranty but Chrysler told me that my vehicle is not. The same problem should be covered by the same extended warranty!

Gas spews out of the tank when filling up. It spews up to 1/2 gallon of gas everywhere. It seems to have a defect with air flow.
