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.

problem #135

Oct 292010


  • 10,000 miles


Fuel blows out from the gasoline fill tube, runs down the outside of the vehicle and spills onto the pavement every time vehicle is refueled. Sometimes the fuel blows out with such force it splashes onto whoever is holding the nozzle. The pump nozzle will shut off as the tank is filled but fuel will simultaneously blow out of the fill tube. It does not matter which gas station is used, it happens at every gas station, and has happened in several states. This vehicle has not been modified in any way and has not been in a collision or damaged in any way. The dealer suggested replacing the tank at my expense, but would not guarantee that even complete replacement would correct the problem.

Wrangler 4WD 6-cyl

  • 500 miles
When refueling the vehicle, the fuel does not automatically shut off and splashes out down the side the vehicle, onto the ground and all over the person fueling the vehicle. This happens every time the vehicle needs to be refueled. Nothing has been found to stop this from happening. The dealer is unwilling to assist in solving the problem.

Wrangler 4WD 6-cyl

  • 33,400 miles


During fueling of a 2006 Jeep Wrangler rubicon unlimited, when the fuel pump nozzle automatically stops the flow of gasoline as the fuel tank fills, fuel surges back through the filler tube and vigorously splashes out on the side of the vehicle and anything or person within 2 to 3 feet of the fuel filler. This occurs every time the fuel tank is filled and has drenched the person filling the vehicle from the waist down with gasoline on two occasions. Has spilled fuel on every fillup (at least one cup), despite precautions (slowing filling rate). Manufacturer and dealer have done nothing to correct this problem.

Gas tank overflows everytime I fill up unless I stop before the tank is full and manually fill the rest of the tank at a very reduced rate. The over flow results in approximately 1 quart of gas being spilled.

The contact owns a 2006 Jeep Wrangler. The contact stated that while adding gasoline to the fuel tank it would spew out of the tank, splash on the contact and then on the ground. The contact feared that a fire could start due to the failure. The contact had not taken the vehicle to a dealer for diagnostic testing. The contact stated that this was a known issue and numerous owners with the same year, make and model have complained about the failure. The failure mileage was 75,000.

2006 Jeep Wrangler -- bought used with less than 30K miles on it. Wobble at about 55mph, intermittently. Mine was solved by replacing the stabilizer bar, had nothing to do with tires, although the first time it happened, I thought I had blown a tire. Gas tank filling -- same problem, the pump doesn't shut off unless you pump the gas slowly. First few times, spewed gas all over the Jeep, myself and the pavement. Now I listen as the tank fills and slow the fill as I know it's starting towards full. With the slowing, the pump does shut off but it's a good idea to have some idea how much gas the tank will take at certain fuel readings.

Just purchased a used 06 Jeep Wrangler in perfect condition with 16000+ miles, took it to fill it up and gas ran out on my first fill up. Now I have to estimate how much gas I need and when I get the that amount, I slowly fill the tank to full. (8/100

Every time I fill up at the gas station the pump will overflow if I'm filling up the tank. The pump doesn't stop unless I pull the nozzle out at which point gas will spill all over the rear flare and paint. It happens at all gas stations. This is in my opinion a very serious safety issue. It appears Chrysler is going to wait for an ignition source to be around for someone to get seriously injured or die before they resolve this.

problem #116

  • 30,000 miles
Every time I fill up with gas the gas will overflow from the fill hole. I would estimate about 2 cups of gas spills before the gas shuts off. It is a huge safety issue and horrible for the environment.
