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.

When exiting vehicle noticed a strong raw gas smell on drivers side. Vehicle was then parked in garage overnight and upon entering the garage the next morning, the fumes were so strong that immediate ventilation was necessary. Problem may coincide with when gas tank is filled to capacity. Problem repeated for a few days and then did not reoccur until gas tank was refilled.

Fuel overflows every time I fill up. If I fill the tank to the auto shutoff point a fair amount of fuel spits out and down the side of the vehicle. This is a potential fire hazard, and not very good for the environment. So now I only put three fourths in so I don't have it pouring out and onto my Jeep

Gasoline shoots out upon full tank, pump nozzle on auto fill. Start to remove nozzle and gas shoots out of filler tube. This has happened numerous times over last two years. Gas gets on clothes and skin. I feel Chrysler should correct this problem as there are numerous complaints regarding this issue.

I purchased the vehicle in September of 2014 for my 16 year old daughter. Every time we attempt to fill up the fuel tank, the pump doesn't cut off and gas spews all down the Jeep and whoever is pumping the fuel. I did some internet research and found it was a common problem with the Jeep and had hoped the vehicle would have been recalled by now to fix. I took it to the dealer and was told the gas tank has to be replaced to fix the problem at a cost of $1,300 and that the tanks were on backorder. Since I don't think it is safe for my daughter to pump the gas, I will continue to do it for her but I think given the amount of complaints and the safety issues, a recall is imminent.

Every time I fill my Jeep up, fuel spills out all over the ground, the side of the car, and on my person which I find very hazardous. This is a recurring issue that has been addressed by Jeep in earlier models, but they are not addressing it with my model. This is unacceptable and dangerous.

While filling up the gas tank, fuel will overflow out onto the vehicle and onto the ground creating a fire hazard. This has started a few months ago and it is a continual problem.

At the end of refueling, gas will come out of the filler neck and spill onto the side of the truck and the ground. The condition has gotten worse as the truck has aged. Even with special attention to make sure the nozzle is inserted as far as possible into the filler neck and filling the tank on the lowest handle setting, it will still spill fuel.

When fueling the vehicle, the pump shuts off and a backpressure sprays fuel out of the tank onto the person fueling. It happens at multiple gas stations and pumps. It also happens if the pump handle is set to shut off or if the person fueling is holding the handle. On most occasions the gas station is open and I am able to wash my hands. On some occasions when the gas station is closed, the fuel vapors from my hands have caused headaches while driving. I have had to decide to deal with it or drive with the windows down when it is 5 degrees outside. A little research shows, I am not the only one dealing with this issue. If it is such a well known issue, why is it not being corrected?

My 2010 Jeep Wrangler sport 2 door overfills the gas tank every time I fill up. The pump shuts off when the tank is full and then a surge of gasoline comes out of the filler neck and the side of the Jeep, the ground and myself were soaked. Today I tried to hold the handle, but once the tank filled out came the gas. I have tried other nozzles and the same thing has happened. This just started about a month ago.

My 2010 Jeep Wrangler sport 2 door overfills the gas tank every time I fill up. The fuel spills out all over the back part of the vehicle as it shuts off only after fuel is spilling out. I have tried multiple gas filling service stations of differing brands, and all of them overfill. This Jeep has an issue with the fuel sensor as I have checked on multiple Jeep forums and they all do this. Why isn't there a recall to have the sensor/fuel tank replaced?
