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.

Wrangler 6-cyl

  • 45,000 miles


Around the date listed above, and since then with every fuel fill up, once the fuel nozzle stops filling, the vehicle spills fuel all over the outside of the vehicle and onto the ground, creating a fire hazard. It did not do this when it was new, and it happens at all different fuel pumps and filling stations. There is a recall for similar vehicles, but it does not include this year. I think that it should.

Purchased this Jeep used last month. Filled the Jeep with gas. The gas poured out of the gas tank down the Jeep and all over the ground. It happened again today. The gas is a pollutant. The gas is dangerous. I have never seen anything like this happen before.

Wrangler 6-cyl

  • 10 miles
Transmission is a standard shift when I let out on clutch the engine will stall. At first I thought because I was not letting out on clutch properly and had to get used to driving boy friend who drives a diesel truck with a standard everyday had the incident happen to him and suggested we take it in for service.which they said they test drove and concluded no problems many times back to dealership with no luck now I'm out of warranty. The vehicle is very dangerous it stalls all the time when I sit and idle at a red light or a cross road at a stop sign when I let out on clutch it starts rolling fine when clutch is disengaged it will not take the gas then engine will sputter then die. Can someone from your Agency test my Jeep please it is going to cause me to get into a wreck. I live in mobile Alabama.
