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.

2006 Jeep Wrangler Owner Comments

problem #6

  • 20,000 miles


I bought my 2006 Jeep Wrangler rubicon new from a dealership. After few years I started having issues with fuel spitting out of the gas filler when filling up at a gas station. About 1/4 to 1/2 cup at a time. Doesn't matter which staion or which pump I use. The pump I use would click off, but always a second too late. This is a very dangerous problem in that not only is it damaging my paint and wheel well flares but also spilling gas on the ground creating an environmental hazard as defined and regulated by the environmental protection Agency, as well as splashing onto the person filling the Jeep covering them in flammable chemicals and exposing them to long-term health issues through inhalation and skin absorption as addressed by the national institutes of health. Not to mention with the fuel spilling out like that, it also creates a lot of fuel vapors. With jus a static spark, it could very well ingnite the fuel. I consider that a very dangerous situation.

When filling the gas tank, it spills. Pressure in the tank and/or filler hose builds up and causes the fuel to spray out, prior to the tank reaching a filled condition. This has happened from the first fill-up to present...over a period of 4 years...and continues. Seems to be a poor design of angle of the tank fuller hose.

While driving on the route smoke start coming out from air / heat vents. I stopped the car, got out of opened frond hood, but was nothing there. Walked to passenger door and saw fire where passenger keeps legs. Got my paperwork from the car and by the time I run away from the car the whole thing was ball of fire.

My 2006 "trail rated" Jeep Wrangler SE suffers from cheap quality, paper-thin, sheet metal front fenders that bend from rocks thrown from the worthless Goodyear Wrangler street-treaded, pebble throwing tires!! cheap quality!! my Jeep has 8,400 easy driven miles, but now has dented fenders with cracked paint finish and paint flaking!! I should have bought a Toyota instead of a "trail rated" Jeep that isn't "gravel road rated"!
