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.

I have called and contacted Jeep hot line at 18774265337 but no luck. Fuel overflows from filler after auto-shutoff of pump occurs. Occurs every time fueling operations occurs regardless of fuel station. Numerous complaints issue but no service bulletins or recalls. Potential fire hazard.

My gas overflow every time I fill up my tank. This has been happening for a few years and I contacted Jeep and was told they would not do anything. This is a safety hazard and could cause a fire and something should be done I have spoken to several Jeep owners with this model and they are having the same problem.

NHTSA recall number 13V-252. Chrysler/Jeep has never contacted me in reference to this recall. Which seems to be very serious since it appears passengers in my vehicle and myself could be killed due to this defect. Another example of Jeep not caring about their customers. Once they get their money they don't know you. I am the only owner of the vehicle and I have not moved so there is no excuse for not contacting me. I am sure they will lie and say they did. If they had I would have had the work done since it involves life and death. All about the bottom line and not caring about people. I would prefer they send me the materials to repair the problem and I will have my mechanic take care of the issue. When I had Jeep repair a defective window regulator now that door does not work. I want it done right so have them send me the parts needed to: 115 avenue C, sch. Haven, pa 17972.

Every time the gas tank is filled, gasoline overflows before the automatic fueling nozzle shutoff activates. Fuel runs down the side of the vehicle and onto the ground.

While dispensing fuel into the vehicle at a filling station the fuel gushes from the fill port prior to the tank being full. The fuel continues to come out for a few second after the fuel dispensing is stopped. This is completely un safe, wasteful and creates an emissions issue at every fill up.

We received the notice about the gas/fuel tank potential to catch fire, we took our vehicle to the dealer. The dealer explained that we have too much corrosion on our vehicle to be repaired. The cost to repair exceeds the value of the vehicle, currently we are still driving with a vehicle that may catch fire. We contacted Chrysler as we still are paying off the vehicle, we where given the run around until finally one associate told us simply, they will not help you. Prior to this recall notice we have constantly had issues when filling up with gas and the gas would leak out in large quantities instead of shutting off. We replaced the oil pan recently after it rusted out, we are about to replace to transmission fluid pan as that is about to rust out, the transmission lines are also rusting and corroded. Our Jeep may be an 05 but it looks as if its brand new rolling off the line, we take care of our vehicle. We are informed consumers and know there is a recall for Chrysler failing to fix the fuel tank explosion issues, when we looked up the VIN for our vehicle it was not showing that it is one of the one's being recalled. Our vehicle was not repaired and we should be included in this recall. We want to know if our vehicle will be included in the recall. We still have all the paperwork from visiting the dealer. When we took the vehicle up for the recall, the dealership told us that Jeep has issues with rust to begin with and that it is a known issue that has yet to be corrected.

The car does not shut off fueling when the gas tank is full, causing a large amount of gas to spew out of the car when filling gas every time. Causes gasoline to go everywhere, is a fire hazard. (it is not just a little bit of gas, the car is turned off, at the gas pump and at the gas station.)

I own a 2005 Jeep Liberty that has been recalled due to the fuel tank has a chance of experiencing a fuel leak during certain types of rear end collisions. I have returned the vehicle to the dealer and was told that Chrysler does not have to make the repairs due to the car having a reconstructed title. I am checking with your Agency to find out if that is the truth. I have had recall work done in the past without this issue arising.
