2011 Dodge Nitro gasoline fill spout and fuel tank is affected part. Every time I fill up the vehicle with gasoline it spews out of the gas tank all over me and the side of the SUV. I've contacted Dodge and they say there is no recall. I contacted the dealer I bought it from and they claimed to have fixed the issue and yet it persists. This is dangerous and hazardous to my health. There needs to be a recall fixing this issue.

Engine stalls while parked or when accelerating from a full stop. It does the same while taking a curve and trying to accelerate when the curve ended. It feels like there is not enough gasoline coming from the tank and the engine starves. It does it when the engine has finished warming and all the time while driving. Vehicle has been in service for warranty because of this issue, but the problem returns as soon as 1 week after.

There is an issue with the fuel tank/ valve in this model Dodge vehicle. Every time I go to fuel up I have to guess the number of gallons it will take before I stop pumping in fuel, otherwise fuel will spill out all over the side and the ground. This happens every time I fuel up, no matter the gas station or type of pump or fuel grade. Spoke to Chrysler llc. They stated that it was not on the recall for my year vehicle but it was for the 2007 - 2008 models. Why is it not on the recall!"?"!!! I was told I would have to pay for this issue out of pocket as it is not covered in my extended warranty. This is a factory defect. It is a safety concern and health issue, not to mention environmental. This needs to be on recall immediately. It is ridiculous that it is not already.
