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.

My Jeep has had a constant issue with gas shooting out the spout when filling it up. I have contacted the dealership locally and was told they are waiting for a recall. This was in late 2005 with same vehicle with different VIN series. This is 2014 and no recall. I have contacted manufacturer many time and told no reported issue for this VIN series. Thank you for you great watch dog service!

I recently purchased a 2005 Jeep Liberty and have found that it does not stop when full when I add gas. I've had to refill the car about 5 times since I've had the vehicle and it overflows every single time, splashing on the ground and onto me, creating dangerous puddles and a fire hazard to everyone around. It doesn't automatically shut off like all other cars do but completely bypasses the safety shut off like it should when its nearing full. I've researched this online and there are hundreds of other Jeep owners who have this exact problem but there is no official recall from Jeep about it. It not only affects Jeep Liberty but Wrangler and tj and appears to happen from 2003 models and up.

Starting back in August and continuing to this date, every time I put fuel into the Jeep it splashes out of the gas tank when full. Not just a little splash either! it pours out of the gas tank and down the side of the Jeep every time. I can somewhat control the splash by clicking off the gas pump handle at intermediate intervals and then going very slowly to put the last 2 to 3 gallons of gas in the tank, but this doesn't always work. When the tank is almost full it will start to spew out.
