: the contact stated there was fuel leaking from underneath the vehicle while parked. The vehicle was taken to a service dealer, who determined the leak originated at the rollover valve. The fuel tank was replaced, which corrected the problem. There was a NHTSA recall# 00V195000, which pertained to the fuel tank assembly. The vehicle was not included in the recall due to the VIN. Updated 12/01/06.

Fuel leak for a 2nd time. June 2002 full tank of gas leaking all over garage while we were on vacation. Dealer said the gas tank was warped at the top and could not seal properly. Est $900. To replace tank. 43000 mi. On Jeep it was out of warranty. Ended up paying $277. Labor and made them warranty the faulty tank. Aug. 2003 fuel leaking again from top of tank and dripping down off under the tank. Dealer says the fuel pump is out $628. To replace. Jeep owners beware.

This vehicle has been to the dealer 3 times for fuel leaking from the top of the tank after filling it up at the gas station. Fuel pump was replaced as well as tank. Condition goes away and then returns again 9-12 months after repair. Obdviously parts are failing for the same reason. Car will lose approx.3 gallons after leaving gas station driving down the road. Someone is going to end up dead if they dont correct this. Vehicle is out of warranty, but problem is related to the same recall. I cant afford the parts and labor to repair it, leaving me no choice but to drive it.

I was involved in a rear end collision which started a small pile up. I was struck in the rear and my fuel tank ruptured and the Jeep burst into flames immediately as I was pushed into second car. By the grace of god I survived.
