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.

2005 Jeep Wrangler Owner Comments

When fueling up and the hand pump clicks off, gas continues to shoot out of the fuel tank. Its enough to leave a small puddle on the ground not to mention all over the rear of my Jeep and it has stained my new fender flare. I understand this has been an ongoing problem with Jeep Wrangler.

Wrangler 6-cyl

Since purchase in November, this vehicle has always shot fuel out of the fuel filler when it reaches a full tank. The gas pump will shut off, but never before it has expelled fuel onto me personally, my shoes, the ground, the filler cap (which is attached to the vehicle by tether), and down the body panel below the filler. This is a serious fire and health hazard for myself and other patrons of the fuel station.

Wrangler 6-cyl

  • 36,000 miles
When refueling the vehicle, the automatic shutoff does not engage from the vehicle itself properly, causing fuel to continue to flow and out and all over the side of the vehicle. It also sprays out and on the operator fueling the vehicle. There is a technical service bulletin from Jeep about the issue, but action has not been taken by the manufacturer. I request this be repaired under warranty. Material safety data sheets classify gasoline as a hazardous material, known to cause health defects when in contact with skin, and environmental impacts when improperly contained.
