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.

During re-fueling, when the gas tank is full, gas overflows out of the vehicle and spills everywhere. I was told the entire gas tank has to be replaced. My warranty is expired and there is no recall for my year Jeep Wrangler (2010). I saw that this is covered for Jeep years 2006-2007 regardless of miles/warranty. This is a hazard that should be covered for any year Jeep, not just those specific years.

Every time I fill up the gas tank, the tank overflows. The automatic shutoff on the pump doesn't stop and gas pours out. Every time, every gas station. I can't fill up the tank completely because it will overflow. I have to estimate when it's close to full and stop it before it gets close.

Every time I full my gas tank in my Jeep, it always spews gas out on me and the Jeep. This is very hazardous and very hard to clean. It happens every single time at any gas pump. I have a child in the nicu that can't be around any fumes and its preventing me from seeing my daughter. I have heard Chrysler will do nothing about the "issue".

Gasoline overflows out of the filler while adding fuel. This has happened at different gas stations from Indiana to Florida. Fuel overflows no matter how fast or slow I fill the tank and if I allow the pump to auto shut off or I fill by hand. I have attached a photo of another Jeep Wrangler doing the same thing as mine.

Just about every time I fill up my 2010 Jeep Wrangler jk with gas, it spits gas back out of the fill up neck tube. When I get home and park it in the garage it fills the entire house up with gas odor. I am very concerned about our health as this could not be safe. Just a side note, I am also concerned what this will do to my nice paint. I have researched this very good and have read several other cases identical to mine and it seems that this problem needs addressed.

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.
