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.

The contact owns a 2010 Jeep Wrangler. While attempting to use the passenger side seat belt, the seat belt would not latch to secure the contact. The failure was intermittent. Also, while driving at various speeds, the fuel cap warning indicator illuminated on the instrument panel. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for diagnostic testing, but the details of the diagnosis could not be provided. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 48,000.

The contact owns a 2010 Jeep Wrangler. The contact stated that the fuel tank did not have a sensor; therefore, every time fuel was pumped and the tank was filled, fuel spilled out. The manufacturer was notified. The vehicle was driven to a mechanic, but was not diagnosed or repaired. The VIN was unknown. The approximate failure mileage was 900.

Gasoline will shoot out of the filler tube when filling the vehicle with gas while manually pumping or using the auto shut-off of the pump handle. It occurs on almost every fill-up.

When pumping gas the gas does not click off and gas spits out all over me and the Jeep. I just purchased this used from a Ford dealer. I had this same problem with my Dodge durango that had a recall by Chrysler. I checked and there is no recall on the 2010 Jeep Wrangler but have researched and it seems to be a common problem with Jeep. There should be a recall on them before someone gets hurt. I filled up at different gas stations. I had other people pump the gas, including the mechanic from the dealership I purchased the Jeep at. It did the same thing each time. The only way to avoid it is to not fill up which does not solve the problem.

When filling up with fuel at the pump, the automatic shutoff on the pump will click off and then a large amount of fuel will come spilling back out of the vehicle and onto the ground. It does this at almost every fill up regardless of the temperature, pump or gas station used.

Never knew that this was an issue until recently but for 5 years, since the first fill up of gas, the automatic shut off on the pump pops followed by a spurting of gasoline out of my tank. It gets everywhere. On me, my clothes, my shoes, the ground, not to mention all over the side of my Jeep and the fender.

The Jeep was turned off and stopped at the gas station and when filing up with gas the gas pulsates out of the opening and spews out all over Jeep and ground. Also not sure if related the next day the gas cap code came on.

While filling the gas tank, it will overflow and about a gallon of gas will come out and go all over the ground. It happens at many different gas stations and is a hazard to people and the environment.

While filling the gas tank fuel will spill out of the filler spout. It seems to be under pressure when the tank is almost full....very dangerous...if you do not stop the pump prior to a full tank of gas it will spill out every time

Gas tank overflow on every fillup. On some pumps I can only pump 1/3 of a gallon at a time very slowly. It seems clear that the check valve is having some kind of issue as is a well known problem in these Jeep. The dealership will not take any responsibility for the problem and charges almost double what a new tank would cost to diagnose and replace the tank.

problem #87

  • 113,000 miles
Fuel spills out of the filler port during the refueling process. This condition generally occurs when the fuel tank is filled to the full or nearly full level and the gas pump automatically shuts or clicks off. The fuel splashes on the person fueling the car, the car itself, and onto the ground. This happens repeatedly, not just a single occurrence. Have tried different gas pumps, slowing the pump when it gets to almost full, and finally now just not filling up completely due to safety concerns of fuel spilling onto ground/driver/vehicle. Date given is most recent occurence, while it has been happening for over 6 months.

My gas tank overflows every time I fill it. It does not recognize when it is full and stops pumping. It makes the noise it if finished pumping and when I pull out the gas handle it overflows with gas down the side of my Jeep. My vehicle was stationary when filling it every time.

problem #84

  • 64,000 miles
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.
