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 was driving down the street when the diesel Jeep stalled. Luckily I was able to get to the side of the street. I checked and there was air in the diesel fuel line. When I used the pump to prime it fuel started leaking around the heating element electrical fitting. When I pulled the fitting you could see charring around the end. The vehicle now gets air in the lines and stalls all the time. I have pulled the electrical connection because I am afraid of fire.

This has been happening since the Jeep was brand new. There is no auto-stop when filling the Jeep. Up to a gallon, or more, will spill out if you cannot stop it in time. This causes fuel to get all over the vehicle and the person pumping the fuel. We have talked with the dealer about this problem repeatedly (in two states - New Jersey and Maine) and it seems there is nothing they can (or will) do. We cannot be the only one with this issue.

I bought this used vehicle 2 years ago. It currently has a recall on the gas tank. The way the dealership "fixes" this recall is to install a trailer hitch, which is laughable, at best. The testing agencies have proven that a trailer hitch is only minimally effect up to 25 mph and not effective at greater speeds. I requested the dealership "work with me" so that I could buy a safer vehicle from them. They are only willing to offer me the same trade-in amount as if I were trading vehicle solely because I want a new vehicle. I would keep this vehicle, if it were safe. I've contacted metal manufacturing businesses and requested that they build me a safe, strong gas tank and bumper to replace that which is currently in the vehicle. I am willing to pay the price to make this vehicle safe. The manufacturing facilities have refused to build any parts for me because the liability, after an accident, would revert to them rather than the burden being on Jeep. I have told the dealership that I have a safety problem but they don't seem to think I should get any financial consideration when trading in an unsafe vehicle that can not be made safe either by me or by Jeep. They will only offer me less than kelly blue book for trade in and have taken $1,000 of the retail price of the new vehicle. This is inadequate considering they sold me an unsafe vehicle which can not be fixed. The dealership is darlings; po box 277; brewer, Maine 04412-0277. Phone: 207-669-6570.

Been happening a lot lately and it seems I am not the only one. Filling up my Jeep with gas and the pump does not kick off. Fuel comes gushing out all over the place. Seems extremely dangerous and while thousands have the same issue, nothing has been done.

During refilling of the fuel tank, the fuel shutoff mechanism does not work properly and fuel always overflows onto the ground. Research reveals that problems of this type are known to be caused in Jeep of this year by the inlet check valve (icv). The recall for this issue in Jeep Wrangler should be expanded to include Jeep Liberty models.

I am the original owner of this Jeep Liberty first of all and I love it, but it is dangerous! I can't fill the gas tank on my Jeep Liberty with out it spewing back out. The first time it happened gas was all on the ground at the gas station. It got all over my hands and paints leg and burned my skin. I was out of town and didn't have an extra pair of pants to change into. All I could do is pull off at the next exit and try to clean my skin in the restroom. Now I have to hold my ear down to the gas nozzle to hear the tank filling up. My husband can't hear well so I can't let him fuel the Liberty. Out of fear of gas getting on others and on the ground, I am the only one that fuels the tank. Chrysler will not replace the gas tank because it shows no problem under my VIN number. This is a public and environmental safety problem with gasoline on people and all over the ground! I need this tank replaced, just thunk about it....1/2 gallon of gasoline on the ground for every other Jeep Liberty like mine out there. I talked with Jeep customer service again today and was still denied.
