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.

Durango 8-cyl

  • 74,000 miles
We own a 2006 Dodge Durango, hemi 8 -cyl engine. We are the first and only owners of the vehicle. When fueling the gas tank, significant quantities of fuel shoot out after the pump has stopped. The person fueling the vehicle gets covered in fuel. Fuel is spilt on ground and on side of vehicle. It makes no difference where you refuel, so it is not station specific. The cabin to the Durango fills with fuel vapors and the situation poses significant risk of fire. There are also significant environmental hazards associated with the constant spilling of the gas. It seems that there are other recalls for this issue with the 2005 Durangos, but not our 2006.

The contact owns a 2006 Dodge Durango. The contact stated that when the vehicle was being fueled, it would spill out of the tank when full. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where the contact was informed that the fuel tank and filler neck assembly was defective. The contact was told that the vehicle was not included in recall 09V003000 (fuel system, gasoline: Storage: Tank assembly). The VIN was unavailable. The failure mileage was approximately 37,000 and the current mileage was approximately 38,000.

When filling the fuel tank, a large quantity of fuel sprays the refueler after tank is full and pump has already shut off. It appears as though a high back pressure builds inside the tank and may be contributing to this problem. This happens regardless of filling station and has contributed to clothing and bodily contact with gasoline.

Durango 8-cyl

  • 50,000 miles
My 2006 Dodge Durango just turned 50,000 miles and all of a sudden every time I fill up on gas the gasoline shoots back out at me. It soaks me, the car, the outside of my car and the ground. This is a fire hazard and a waste of money. I have contacted Dodge and this car is not in a recall. I understand 2005 models were recalled for same exact problem. This is very worrisome and very scary.

Durango 6-cyl

  • 94,000 miles
I have a 2006 Dodge Durango that I purchased in March, 2010. The last 4 times I have filled my vehicle up with gas, when I stop, a huge amount of gas comes shooting back out of the vehicle soaking me, my clothes, my vehicle and pouring onto the ground. The last time I even attempted to begin putting gas into the vehile, it shot out on me, vehicle and ground. It did this 3 times while I was trying to put gas in my vehicle. I am very concerned for my personal safety. What can be done to correct this at no cost?

I have a Dodge Durango 06, lately almost everytime I'm filling up gas, the gasoline overflows from the tank and spills out. I see that Durango 05 had being recall already for the exactly same problem to prevent possible fire. I check internet and there are many complaints from Durango owners with the same issue of spill gasoline when refueling. A called Dodge and they said that without recall the cannot do anything.

My 2006 Durango has the common fuel over-flowing problem. Upon completion of fill up it overflows a good amount of fuel, often soaking gas attendant, myself and truck. Gas station attendant claims that these trucks all overflow like that and they are a big problem. Its going to be an even bigger problem once one of these ignites into flames!

  • 50,633 miles
Purchased a used 2006 Dodge Durango on June 9, 2010. Mileage was 50633. For the past 3 months during every fill-up, at various gas stations, fuel pump nozzle will click off when tank is full and then a few seconds later gasoline will forcibly flow from the tank spilling about a quart of fuel on the side of vehicle and on the cement. The only thing we have done to correct the failure is to partially fill the gas tank.

Durango 8-cyl

  • 89,000 miles


1. purchased 2006 Dodge Durango slt w/ hemi, 8 cyl engine used in Aug. Of 2006 with 19,000 mi. Responded to 3/9/07 electrical system: Instrument panel recall on 12/30/09 at moss bros. Dodge in san bernardino, ca. After initial 12/30/09 visit, experienced power shortages multiple times for the automobile radio. Moss bros. Denied any connection between this and their efforts at the instrument panel. Refused to help in any way. Also began to experience trouble with the gas tank. It began to overflow when I attempted to fill the entire tank. Too discouraged to check with moss bros. Again. 2. the main failure is that gas spews from the tank if it is filled completely, especially if the gas clip is used to automatically fill it. This happened a few times to me and my spouse at multiple gas stations. We now only fill our tank a certain percentage to avoid the problem. The consequences of not being this careful are that gas will spill out on the car, on us, and at the gas pump. An additional consequence is that we would like to sell this car, but will now be forced to foot the bill for this safety issue before we can do so. 3. nothing has been done at this point to correct the problem because we knew it would be costly. As of this month (Aug. 2010) we have just read on the internet that there was a recall for 2005 Dodge Durangos for this exact problem and other people (who own even newer models, I.e. 2007) are still experiencing this safety issue.

When filling up my 06 Durango it always overflows when trying to fill the tank. It happens all the time and at different stations. The tank will fill up and the pump will cut off and then there is a back flow and gas pours out all over the car and the ground.

2006 Dodge Durango. Consistently, upon finishing filling the fuel tank, up to a quart of fuel will spill out of the fuel filler neck. This poses a potential fire hazard. The issue appears to be similar to the supposedly corrected issue affecting certain 2005 Durangos.

When filling up my 06 Durango it always overflows when trying to fill the tank. The automatic shutoff on the gas pump will shut off then seconds later gas shoots out the fill tube. This is very unsafe and could cause explosion and hurt many, many people.

  • 23,500 miles
The contact owns a 2006 Dodge Durango. The contact stated that when refueling the vehicle, the pump would shut off yet one-fourth of gasoline would spew back out from the filler tube onto the ground and on the vehicle. The contact was unable to fill the vehicle with gasoline and could only refuel with small amounts of gasoline at a time. The dealer advised having the vehicle diagnosed at the contact's expense. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 23,500 and the current mileage was 26,800.

2006 Durango fuel tank spews gas instead of shutting pump handle off. This happens anytime we fill vehicle. We must manually turn off pump before we believe gas tank is full to keep from being covered with gas.

I have a 2006 Dodge Durango that has gas fill overflow issues. When pumping gas, the pump nozzle will automatically turn off, but gas rushes out of the gas tank for a few seconds. Very dangerous and messy. This happens everytime when filling up.

Dodge Durango 2006: Fuel filler neck problem. When filling the car, fuel can spurt out of the filler neck including spraying on the person filling the tank. Dodge has the identical problem on 2005 cars and issued a recall to replace filler neck and gas tank, but no such recall on other year cars.

When filling the gas tank on our 2006 Dodge Durango, once the tank is full, gas will shoot out of the tank for a couple seconds unless the pump is manually stopped prior to filling the tank. This happens on almost every fill up.
