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.

2010 Jeep Liberty Owner Comments

Liberty 4WD 6-cyl

  • 45,000 miles


About a quart of gas will "burp" out directly after the pump has kicked off, spilling over the side of the Jeep and onto the person pumping gas. The odd thing is that it actually shoots out under some pressure. The problem is not caused by over-filling. At the dealership I was told I would need to replace the fuel tank. The spillage is a major issue by itself, but I am very concerned about safety issues if an accident occurs. Will this problem cause a fire hazard during an accident? if I replace the gas tank now, will I have the same problem after the next 45,000 miles. Replacing the tank is extreme as a regular maintenance item.

The contact owns a 2010 Jeep Liberty. The contact stated that while refueling, fuel spewed from the filler neck, spilling on the contact's clothing and the ground. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic, who performed an inspection and located the failure at the fuel filler neck. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 34,000 and the current mileage was 39,000. Updated 05/05/2014 updated 05/09/2014

After gassing up removed hose and fuel shot out of filler pipe, over the side of vehicle and unto the ground. At next fuel stop same thing happened, different service station. Dealer states it is not under warranty. I contacted Jeep customer service and they said there are no known issues with my year and make of vehicle. Fix involves valve on fuel tank with new tank.

I purchased this vehicle in early 2013 for my daughter. Ever since it was purchased we have noted the following: When filling the gas tank with the gas nozzle set to automatically shut off as soon as the tank is full there is always a fairly large amount of gas that splashes back and out all over the side of the car and onto the ground. This occurs just as the tank is completely fill up and the nozzle shuts off. It is enough gas that it can be seen all over the side of the vehicle and on the ground. This obviously presents a potential hazard for fire and is very unsettling. I have learned that this is a very common occurrence in many Jeep models (including the 2010 Liberty's, but also other Jeep models) dating back to at least the mid-2000's and that there is a recall and coverage for this to be repaired (usually involving a new gas tank) for many Jeep models, but my particular model is not included in any recall per Chrysler customer care.

Every time gas is put into the tank, the gas will be forcibly blown back out of the filler neck and back onto the person holding the gas nozzle!! dozens of cases across the country have the same occurrence. This is a dangerous hazard that the public and Chrysler should be made aware of. Thank you

Was putting after the pump shut off, gas came pouring out of the tank down the side of the Jeep. This is the maybe the sixth time this has happened to me, but looking on the internet this is a very common problem. You would think Jeep would recall.

Gas pours out of tank after auto shut-off. Every place. Every time, so it is not the gas pump's problem. After reading all these reviews, there is a definite problem here.

The gas tank overflows every time you fill it up with gas. No matter who fills it up or what gas station I go to, when the gas pump shuts off the gas is spilling out of the tank. This is a serious safety hazard. I have had to remove gas from my vehicle and my clothing and body on several occasions.
