i was at the gas station filling up my 2008 jeep wrangler unlimited sahara when the click of the gas pump that lets you know your done filling the tank came on and all of a sudden gas starting overflowing in a large puddle all over the side of my jeep. i thought it was a fluke of some sort so i didn't think much of it. then the next time i filled up i had the same situation happen and the same amount came pouring out. after this i knew that there was a problem and i tried filling my tank slowly and it still made no difference in the spillage. i have had this issue occur numerous times since purchasing the vehicle and feel as though it should be recalled. i have contacted the dealership regarding this issue and they state that they have no knowledge of the issue. i have seen numerous other jeep owners have the same issue. this is a safety hazard and should be an issue fixed by chrysler. *tr

while filling it with gas, it overflows and then clicks off after it has spilled enough to reach the ground. maybe 2 cups of gas goes all over the body of the vehicle, and onto the ground. i can hear air pressure sometimes just before it spurts gas, but not soon enough to prevent the spill. this condition happens every time it is filled now. *tt

when filling the fuel tank, as the fuel level nears the fuel tank capacity the gasoline splashes out of the filler neck and spreads down the side of the jeep liberty and forms a large puddle on the pavement of the gas station. this large puddle of gas could cause a fire/explosion if ignited, thereby killing the occupant of this jeep liberty and other customers at the gas station. in addition to this if the large puddle of gasoline is not ignited, after about 10 minutes the spilled fuel has all evaporated into the atmosphere causing pollution to our atmosphere. i am concerned that i am violating epa emission laws. *tt

our 2005 jeep wrangler has been overflowing when filling up the gas tank for two months now. there is no warning and the gas spews out of the nozzle/tank. the gas often gets all over my shoes, hands and pants. we are not ignoring the shut off click, since this problem began there hasn't been one. for our own safety we wait until the gas light is on to get gas and then estimate how much gas we need in order to stay gas free. we have researched the problem and it seems to be a common problem with jeep and chrysler vehicles involving the inlet check valve, yet they have done nothing. *tr

the recent recall by jeep on the 2010 wranglers does not fit the situations that have been occurring. several owners have experienced spontaneous fires, and were not in any off-road situation that could have cause debris to collect on or near the catalytic converter. they were simply driving home from work, or on the highway. one owner, who contacted me, had 16 miles on it (2012 model), and had just picked it up from the dealership. it caught on fire on his way home. another owner had 600 miles on it (another 2012 model) and it was sitting in front of his home. numerous have not been on the 2010 models either. the debris that "collected" under my vehicle was not burned up in the fire, and not even in that same location. i believe that this "recall" is jeep's attempt to bandage a larger issue they are hiding from the public. video from my fire clearly shows a liquid (tranny fluid or fuel) pouring from the vehicle from the very beginning of the fire. my feeling is that it's a tranny cooler overflow problem, or a bad fuel line connection. here is a link to the facebook page that i created for others to post their experiences. https://www.facebook.com/jeepwranglersthatcaughtonfire. *tr

i purchased the above vehicle back in10/2007 used. i never had a problem with the vehicle until recently that as i was driving, the car would try to shut off and the smell of gasoline was comng inthru the vents. in the last three weeks i have spent close to 600.00 dollars in tune up, replaced coil pack and the fuel injector and still the problem was not fixed. i took my car to another mechanic who determined that the problem is the fuel pump. the mechanic asked me if there was ever a recall and i did a search and long and behold there was a recall, but they are telling me that i don't qualify. please can someone help me.

when refueling the vehicle, the automatic shutoff does not engage from the vehicle itself properly, causing fuel to continue to flow and out and all over the side of the vehicle. it also sprays out and on the operator fueling the vehicle. there is a technical service bulletin from jeep about the issue, but action has not been taken by the manufacturer. i request this be repaired under warranty. material safety data sheets classify gasoline as a hazardous material, known to cause health defects when in contact with skin, and environmental impacts when improperly contained. *tr
