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.

Almost every time I fill-up, there is a splash-back from the fuel filler opening. This apparently is a very common problem with the Liberty model among others. I spoke with the service department at the dealership and was told that I would need to pay for any repairs since there was no recall that would pay for it. I then contacted Chrysler who told me that my specific Liberty is not part of any recall or tsb so they cannot help. I believe this problem poses a hazard if the gas was to ignite. The most recent occurrence was on 26 February 2016.

Ever single time I fill up my gas tank it overflows. This is not anything new. The model of my car one year after has a fuel tank recall so why isn't there one for the 200 kj Jeep Liberty.

The gas tank is improperly designed, while pumping gas it will not properly shut off, will spray gas which is clearly dangerous.

The filler neck in failing on my Jeep Liberty 2007 and it is a safety issue! when I fill up my tank with gas, the automatic shut off occurs and when I remove the nozzle, gas spits back at me. At first it would happen after the tank was full, now it is happening after only filling up 2 gal (when on empty!).

I purchased a car from U.S. auto sales in columbia, South Carolina on June 12th 2015. The evening I took the car home the gas gauge was not at the empty mark and the car shut off and the check engine light came on. I took it back to the dealership and informed them of this and they proceeded to tell me that it is an ongoing Chrysler issue and to not let the gas tank to get below a quarter tank. They proceeded to reset the check engine light. 2 weeks later the check engine light came on again. So I took to a local auto store to have a diagnostics run and was informed that a wheel bearing was needed, a catalytic converter and a fuel line because at a certain level the gas will not reach the engine. Today in South Carolina the temperature is well over 100 degrees and while I was driving my air conditioner stopped working. I have had more issues out of this car within the 30 days I have had it. I did purchase a warranty only to be told that I would have to bear some of the cost to fix a vehicle I just purchased. I am now waiting on a call from their mechanic once he gets the parts in to do the repairs. I believe I was knowingly sold a lemon. I was also told that if I had any issues with the car to bring it in and I will be given a loaner car. Well when I did bring it in I was basically told to get in line and wait because they had no loaner vehicles. Now I am basically stuck with a vehicle with no air and if the gas get past a half tank the car will shut off and if not repaired soon could potentially blow up with me and my children in it. Yes I have called the dealer to request another vehicle and was basically brushed off and told no.

When pumping gas and it shuts off automatically gas spews out like a volcano from the gas tank. It's so bad that the gas attendant has had to come over and put absorbent material on top of the gas spill and we've had to wash down our car so it won't eat the paint. I contacted Jeep who told me there is no recall on this particular vehicle, but this is a problem with other Jeep models and there is a current recall on those models. It sounds like they need to expand their recall to include the 2007 Jeep Liberty's that have this problem. Thank you.

When filling the gas tank the sensor that indicates the tank is full is defective. When it shuts off the gas pump, gas spews out of the tank heavily, getting on auto, ground and person. I spoke to Chrysler about this problem and they said they are aware of this defect but have not issued a recall. They further advised that I would be responsible for all repair expenses if I choose to have the tank replaced. This is a serious defect that Chrysler should fix. The Jeep Liberty has poorly designed gas tanks, they spew gas upon filling and catch fire upon rear impact. Chrysler should be made to correct these issues and stop offering patches, I. E. hitches that help protect gas tanks in rear contact/impact under 40 mph, that don't protect the consumer from serious bodily harm and/or death. These risk need to eliminated, not pacified!

Every time I fill up for gas, the automatic shutoff is triggered too late and a significant amount of gas spills out of the car, soaking the side of the car, the pump handle, the ground around it, and anyone standing next to the tank. This creates a significant risk of fire, and is also harmful for the environment. There was no attempt to top off the tank.
