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.

When pushed to speed up at a fast rate and upon approaching 65mph or faster the service engine light flashes slowly. My mechanic found the code reader saying a misfire was happening. When that light flashes it starts to shake pretty bad. Determined that cylinder 1 has low compression. Only way to find out for sure what to do next is to tear down the motor which I do not have the money for that. Sad how waistful people are forced to be with vehicles. Its still pretty new!! we took good care of this Jeep maintaining it correctly since we got it with only 37K miles and has not had any problems till now. So this was a shock! before 37K miles I am not aware of this particular Jeep's engine repair history. Also this same Jeep had the clogged fuel line causing the tank to spill out while fueling up when it was not full yet.

It has been brought to the attention of the NHTSA that there is an issue with Jeep vehicles that when fueling up the gas tank a geyser of gasoline will erupt from the tank upon "completion" of filling the tank. Covering the car, the individual filling the tank, the ground, and anyone else within a certain vicinity in gasoline, a highly flammable liquid. Chrysler has a history of this issue with their vehicles. In 2009, 45,000 cars were recalled for it. Currently, Chrysler has agreed to "initiate a lifetime warranty program" to address this very issue in 135,000 Jeep manufactured in 2007 and 2008. Leaving all other Jeep owners with this issue to continue risking their lives and the lives of others by getting continually doused in gasoline. Recently, Chrysler issued a recall for 430,000 Jeep because of a weakness in the gas tank that can burst into flame in the event of a rear end collision. So they know their gas tanks are weak! this latest recall admits to it. So why the discrimination against the rest of us Jeep owners with faulty inlet check valves" where is justice, and concern for our safety"

I received a recall notice in August 2014 regarding the fuel tank on my car. It has taken until today to get the part at the dealership, jones of bel air. Some of the blame is due to the parts not being available and that jones did not contact me when the parts came in, as they said they would. I believe this has placed me at risk of harm due to the fuel tank leak that could cause a fire in the event of a collision.

I purchased what appeared to be a well maintained 2006 Jeep from a local reputable dealer at a cost over of 10 grand on 10/3/14. The first tank fill up the gas overflowed out of the tank. There was no "stop" the gas just came out. I asked the cashier if there was a problem with the gas pump and they said they didn't know. So, the next gas fill up a week later, the gas shot out of the tank this time. Still no warning to stop filling the tank with a gas "stop". I contacted the dealer, who could not find anything mechanically wrong with the tank, and had to pay for and send the car to a local Jeep dealer for repair. To make a long story short, they replaced the gas tank. Albeit I received the car back with less gas than I had left it with. Took the car home, filed the car on Friday 11/7/14 and the gas mechanism did stop the gas, but only after gas leaked out from the gas tank again, and they never even tested the car to make sure it didn't happen again! as I found out later, they replaced the tank with a used tank. I am incredulous about this issue. My dealer is going to take care of this issue, I hope. And if it is not fixable, I will never buy another Jeep or Chrysler product! from what I am reading on the web no one is listening to us Jeep owners. Thankfully I have a small warranty period that covers this issue, but I implore you to reopen this issue. I can attest this is not internet hype. I have worked hard for most of my life and feel as a consumer I am being taken advantage of. To make such a substantial purchase to only find out that thousands of others are being ignored with the same issue is beyond me. Please fix what is already broken.

There has not been an accident yet. We have been attempting to schedule a recall appointment for six months with Jeep/Chrysler. We continuously receive reminders to set an appointment to fix the car but then they cant help you when you do call to do what they are requesting. They claim they don't have the parts and are not responsive to inquiries about when parts will be ready. They need to let us know when they can actually address their recall issues.

2006 Jeep Liberty's gas tank overflow malfunction. Every time I fill the Liberty's gas tank it has overflowed. This has been happening ever since the first time I gassed it up after purchasing it in 2006. I have reported it several times to my local Jeep dealership it was even reported to the dealership when I went in to get my free oil change (at 3000 miles) for the purchase of the vehicle, but they have constantly passed the blame down on me for not properly filling the gas tank. Because I am either a. at fault because I am toping off the tank or B. I am at fault for apparently using the same gas pump all the time. But it doesn't matter who's filling the tank, nor does it matter which gas station I go to gas ends up getting on me, the side of the Jeep, and on the ground which is hazardous all the way around. I understand that the tank is under recall to have a hitch installed, to protect it from rear end collisions but I have no interest, in participating in the recall until the overflow problem is resolved.

When filling the gas tank the tank overflows every time as the tank reaches the full point the dealer states a new tank is required and they are aware of the defect but it is the customer?S problem at a cost of about $1600 this is a safety and fire hazard and needs to be address by Chrysler. There is also a problem with the window regulators the plastic clip that holds the windows up snaps off at random and the windows fall down again Chrysler is aware of the design defect but refuses any help or permanent fix.
