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.

When filling the gas tank, there is almost always overflow that spills out of the nozzle onto the side of the vehicle and onto the pavement. I would estimate this happens about 80% of the time I fill up.

Every time I fill the gas tank (parked with engine turned off), gas spews from the filler tube, runs down the side of the car, pools on the ground and underneath the car, creating an extremely dangerous situation. Gas continues to spew out and all over the area until I desperately grab the gas pump nozzle handle and manually disengage it! I now never can depend upon auto shut-off!! I have to manually operate the pump nozzle, not take my hand off it, listen to the gushing tone sound as the tank nears the full point and shut off the nozzle by hand when I hear the gas getting ready to spew all over the place!! this is so dangerous!!!!! over the course of several years, I thought this problem was just unique to my car but after talking with two other Jeep Liberty owner acquaintances, I discovered they had the same dangerous safety problem with their Jeep Liberty, as well. This is so dangerous.... it needs to be recalled and fixed!!! ("when did this happen field below: July 2009 to present")

2006 Jeep Liberty: Fuel splashes back when filling gas tank at a gas station. This happens every time I fuel the tank. Faulty fuel inlet check valve. Other Chrysler vehicles have this problem and have been recalled for repair. I spoke with a representative from Chrysler, and they stated that Chrysler has no plans of issuing a recall for this make, model, and year vehicle.

When filling up the gas tank, the automatic shut off does not function, resulting in gas pouring out of the tank. This has happened consistently, no matter where or when I fill up.

Every time I start to fill my tank it overflows. I lose approx. 1/2 gallon on the ground every time I put fuel in. This is ridiculous! I just bought this Jeep a few weeks ago. The previous owner/ dealership did not make us aware of this problem.

Fuel spills every time we fill up. I took it to grapevine Dodge and talked to a service adviser and she treated me and my daughter like we were stupid. Sorry, but I grew up working in a mobil service station and my Chevy's don't overflow!!! so I left pissed off. It happens every fillup.

From the time I received the recall notice I have been trying to resolve the issue. I called when first received the recall, then again in June and spoke to a jennifer, stated that the part was on back order and that I was in the 100 and they were on 30. I asked what I should do during the waiting time and she said to try not to get hit. I called again the beginning of September and jennifer stated that I should receive a part or call in a few days. It is now September 14 and I have not heard anything about fixing or setting up an appointment for fixing the Jeep. I have three children that ride in my Jeep, I do not have a choice but to drive it, all I can do is pray that I do not get hit from behind one day and cause the gas explosion that could occur do to manufacturing issues.
