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.

Each time I refuel my 2006 Dodge Durango, fuel spills out the filler neck and and onto the ground. I have to warn the pump attendant that fuel will spill out on them if they are standing nearby. If my window is down the vehicle will fill up with gasoline fumes. Our children have complained about the fumes in the back of the vehicle after leaving the gas station. The puddle from the spilled gasoline on the ground is ab out 1.5 to 2.5 feet in diameter.

Durango 8-cyl

  • 75,000 miles
I have a 2006 Dodge Durango that has a safety issue. When I fill up, the gas pressure builds up in the tank and spurts out all over. I can actually hear it start gurgling in the tank. I have been covered with gasoline on a several occasions. The first few times, I thought maybe it was something I had done, or the gas pump where I was filling. But I recently went on 2 trips from fl to NY and back and it happened almost every fill up on both trips within a month, as well as fill ups in between and as I stated, some prior to. This created several hazardous situations. Gasoline on my person and clothing, inhalation of the fumes causing illness, gasoline on my vehicle, gasoline on the pavement at the gas pumps. I have seen several posts online about my exact problem since it happened. One person is personally documenting cases. He has over 120 + cases he is aware of, not including mine, this year alone. This is the first step I have taken at this point, as I feel this should be a recall issue if it is happening with such frequency. These are the documented cases just through one person online, which leads me to believe that there are many other cases not documented. Not to mention people who don't fill their tanks all the way who may have the issue and do not even know it. Does somebody have to be burned or otherwise injured, overcome by the fumes first" how many instances must occur before it becomes a true safety concern? does my child need to fill the tank and maybe swallow the gasoline that spurts out" please let me know if anything is in the works. The one individual says he was initially looking at a $350 repair bill that was then lowered to $100 and then offered free due to his complaints. I agree with him, it looks like they want to pay him off to shut him up. Meanwhile they make money off what is obviously a manufacturer's defect. I have never seen this problem before and I have had many vehicles with many problems. This one is unique and is a safety issue.

Gasoline spews out of the fill spout when gas tank is full. This happens every time the pump shuts off when tank is full. You have to be very careful that the gasoline doesn't spray all over the person filling the tank.

Every time I refuel my 2006 Dodge Durango (limited), at least half a gallon of gasoline spews back from the fill nozzle and onto the side of the SUV and ground (and sometimes myself or my wife). This is our family vehicle, and I consider this very dangerous for both my wife and I and our children. This is a hazard that needs to be addressed. I can provide video proof that this is a problem.

Just purchased 2006 Dodge Durango slt on Tuesday, June 22, 2011. Was filling gas tank this evening, pump shut off and about 1/2 a gallon of gasoline sprayed out of the vehicle, all over me and the ground. Thought I did something wrong until I got home and researched this incident and see that this is a very common thing with these Durango's and something needs to be done about this before someone gets seriously injured!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! what if this would have sprayed into my eyes" why won't Chrysler do a recall on these and fix them. I am going to be scared now to pump gas when I need it!! I have owned this vehicle for 2 days now........... please help us Durango owners get this problem fixed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Chrysler needs to have a serious recall and get this fixed before someone gets hurt. It's documented quite well that this is a problem. What is it going to take"

Dangerous fuel safety problem with 2006 Dodge Durango ! when filling gas tank, the pump automatically shuts off and approximately 1-2 pints of gas shoots out of the filler nozzle. It doesn't matter what brand of gas pump, or how much fuel is dispensed. This always happens when filling up.

I just purchased a used 2006 Dodge Durango. Everytime I fill it up with gasoline, when it gets full, gasoline overflows from the filler tube and gets on the ground and me. I have read on Dodge forums that this a common problem among Durango owners and I feel is a safety issue.

I have been having this problem for the past year and the dealer isn't acknowledging the problem. I placed the incident date so as to move to next page of this complaint.
