The contact owns a 2005 Jeep Liberty. The contact stated that she attempted to have the vehicle repaired under NHTSA campaign number: 13V252000 (fuel system, gasoline, structure) but was informed that the parts were not available and that the dealer was not receiving parts approximately two months later. The contact felt that since the failure was reported in November of 2013, there should have been a remedy available before March of 2014. The contact stated that the manufacturer had exceeded a reasonable time for repair. The contact had not experienced a failure.

Over time, the automatic shutoff on fuel pumps at gas stations began to not shut off until after a significant amount of fuel had spilled out (up to a half gallon). At first, I thought it may be the design of different pumps, so I experimented with different stations. I found that no matter what style pump or station I am at, this continues to occur. I have had to resort to estimating how much gasoline I need based on my gage prior to turning the vehicle off. Another option is to underestimate and never really have a full tank. I have found that severely slowing the pump down toward the end of what I think is the amount of gasoline I need for a full tank will usually (but not always) get the pump to shut off in time prior to overflowing. Although I have gotten better at estimating, there are still times that gasoline overflows. Aside from a fire hazard on the vehicle and on the ground at the pump, the gasoline can cause body damage over time. This has nothing to do with attempting to "top off" the tank after the pump shuts off. There is no top off room with this vehicle. I have had other vehicles that could take an extra gallon or more after the automatic shutoff, but this one does not. After looking at several forums and other online posts, I discovered that there are many other owners who have experienced this problem. I contacted Chrysler, left my information with them to be processed, and was told I'd be called back. They called back and left a voicemail saying that they would not be taking any action to fix it and that I could call back if I had any questions. I called back and could not get the agent that worked on my claim to call me back.

The rear passenger side window regulator broke due to wear of a plastic component. The window slides down completely and causes the car to be open to the elements/thieves. The rear driver side window regulator had the same issue the previous year.

In late 2008 and early 2009 our paint on the top of our vehicle began to peel, we had always had our vehicle in a carport as of now the entire top has peeled off, from what I can tell it is the cleat coat. I had brought this to the attention of a Jeep dealership after a recall once.

When filling the gas tank on this vehicle, it fills up and then overflows before after the filler shuts off. This spills gasoline out and onto the ground. Potential for fire and it's bad for the environment.
