Summary of Complaint

I BOUGHT THE CAR IN 2009 AS THE SECOND OWNER WITH 18,000 MILES ON IT. ABOUT 6 MONTHS AGO EVERY TIME I FILL UP THE GAS TANK IT OVERFLOWS AND SPRAYS GAS ALL OVER THE PLACE. AT FIRST I THOUGHT IT WAS THE STATION BUT AFTER USING MULTIPLE STATIONS I NOW HAVE TO ESTIMATE HOW MUCH GAS IS LEFT IN THE TANK AND THEN TRY AND FILL IT UP. THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED AS IT IS A MAJOR SAFETY ISSUE.

Summary of Complaint

JEEP LIBERTY 2008 GAS GUSHING OUT EVERY TIME AFTER FILLING TANK - ACCORDING TO DEALER, ROLL-OVER VALVE IS FAULTY INSIDE GAS TANK SO ENTIRE GAS TANK MUST BE REPLACED (ABOUT $800+). THIS VALVE ENSURES THAT GAS WILL NOT LEAK INTO VEHICLE IN THE EVENT OF A ROLL-OVER ACCIDENT; ALSO ENSURES GAS WON'T SHOOT OUT OF THE GAS TANK AFTER FILLING WITH FUEL. GAS ERUPTS OUT OF TANK AND BACK ONTO THE FACE, BODY AND FEET OF THE CONSUMER AS WELL AS ALL DOWN THE SIDE OF VEHICLE AND ONTO THE GROUND NEAR GAS PUMPS. VERY UNSAFE HAZARD. NOT A MAINTENANCE PROBLEM BUT RATHER A DEFECTIVE PART INSIDE THE GAS TANK. SHOULD NOT BE THE CONSUMER'S RESPONSIBILITY TO REPLACE. VEHICLE IS ONLY 2 1/2 YEARS OLD WITH 40,000 MILES LOGGED. THIS OCCURS EACH AND EVERY TIME THE TANK IS FILLED WHETHER OR NOT IT IS ON AUTO-FILL OR MANUALLY REGULATED. TRICKY WORK TO MANUALLY STOP GAS FLOW BEFORE IT GUSHES OUT. LODGED COMPLAINT WITH JEEP OF AMERICA BUT WAS TOLD ONLY POSSIBLE RECOURSE WAS TO PAY FOR REPAIR MYSELF; SUBMIT CLAIM TO THEM AFTER THE FACT, AND THEY MAY OR MAY NOT DECIDE TO ASSIST ME WITH COSTS (THEY WON'T CALL IT REIMBURSEMENT) FOR SOME OR ALL OF MY EXPENSES. THEY CLAIMED NO RESPONSIBILITY AND COMPLETE LACK OF KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE PROBLEM ALTHOUGH THIS CONCERN IS POSTED ALL OVER THE INTERNET IN VARIOUS FORUMS. THANK YOU. *TR

Summary of Complaint

I'M SPEEDING UP AS I'M PASSING A TRUCK ON 395, SIGNALING WITH LEFT BLINKER. START SPEED AS BEGINNING TO PASS IS APPROX. 55 MPH. I SIGNAL RIGHT AS I PULL BACK IN THE SOUTH BOUND LANE, TAKE MY FOOT OFF THE GAS PEDAL AS I NOTICE I'M DRIVING 80 MPH. THE GAS PEDAL IS STUCK AND THE CAR IS GOING 80 MPH ON ITS OWN. I STEP ON THE BRAKE CAREFULLY BUT ITS ROCK HARD AND DOESN'T MOVE AT ALL. AT THIS POINT THE CAR IS STUCK AT 80 MPH. I TRY TO BRAKE AGAIN BUT THE SAME - BRAKE PEDAL IS STUCK, DOESN'T MOVE AT ALL AND IS ROCK HARD. ROAD CONDITIONS ARE GOOD SO I'M IN A "CONTROLLED PANIC", AND TRY THE BRAKE ONE MORE TIME. THIS TIME THE BRAKES ENGAGE AND I GET THE CAR DOWN TO 65 MPH. I DON'T WANT TO BURN THE BRAKES SO I RELEASE THE BRAKE AND IMMEDIATELY THE CAR SPEEDS UP ON ITS OWN TO 80 MPH. I REPEAT. SLOW TO 65 MPH, STEP OFF THE BRAKE AND AGAIN THE CAR IMMEDIATELY SPEEDS UP TO 80 MPH. AT THIS POINT MY THOUGHTS GO TO CRUISE CONTROL (WHICH I HAD NOT ACTIVATED OR USED ON THIS TRIP). I PULL THE "CANCEL" ON THE CRUISE CONTROL, NOTHING. I TRY AGAIN AND LOOK AT THE DASHBOARD WHERE THE CRUISE CONTROL LIGHT IS "OFF", INDICATING CRUISE CONTROL IS NOT ON. I TURN THE CRUISE CONTROL ON AND PULL THE "CANCEL" AGAIN AND BRAKE. THIS TIME THE CAR COMES OUT OF IT, AND I TURN THE CRUISE CONTROL OFF AGAIN. SINCE THE CRUISE CONTROL WAS NOT EVEN ON TO BEGIN WITH, I DON'T KNOW IF THAT'S WHAT ACTUALLY MADE THE CAR 'UNFREEZE'. I WAS LUCKY I WAS ON A STRAIGHT STRETCH OF ROAD WITH NO TRAFFIC IN FRONT OF ME. SINCE I WAS PASSING A TRUCK I'M NOT 100% SURE IF I SPED UP TO 80 MPH OR IF THE CAR SUDDENLY DID THAT ON ITS OWN. I DO BELIEVE THE CAR DID THAT, AS THERE WAS NO REASON TO GET UP TO THAT SPEED TO PASS SAFELY.

Summary of Complaint

MY ROOF SKY SLIDER HAS BEEN DISCONNECTED FROM THE TRACK THAT IT CONNECTS TO AND WILL NOT STAY ON THE ROOF WITHOUT MANUAL INTERVENTION. I CURRENTLY HAVE THE ROOF TAPED DOWN SO IT DOES NOT FLY OFF WHILE DRIVING. WITH THE SLIDER BEING DISCONNECTED, IT HAS CAUSED MANY LEAKS TO ALLOW WATER INTO THE INSIDE OF THE VEHICLE, DAMAGING THE ROOF, FLOORBOARDS, AND HAS GOTTEN INTO SOME OF THE ELECTRICAL AREAS SUCH AS OVERHEAD LIGHTS ABOVE FRONT DASH. INITIAL DISCONNECT HAPPENED WHILE DRIVING AND SKYSLIDER WAS CLOSED. IT STARTED TO OPEN UP IN THE FRONT RIGHT CORNER FROM WIND PRESSURE AND WITHOUT PUSHING THE BUTTON TO OPEN IT. UPON FURTHER INVESTIGATION, IT HAS BEEN DETERMINED THAT THE PINS THAT KEEP THE SLIDER IN PLACE DISCONNECTED AND WILL NOT CONNECT BACK TOGETHER. CURRENTLY FRONT PASSENGER SIDE, REAR DRIVER SIDE, AND REAR PASSENGER SIDE ALL HAVE DISCONNECTED PINS AND THE SLIDER WILL NOT STAY ON THE ROOF WITHOUT INTERVENTION. I HAVE CONTACTED CHRYSLER AND THEY SAID THAT THERE ARE NO RECALLS FOR THIS ISSUE. THIS IS VERY MUCH A SAFETY ISSUE AS IF I WERE TO REMOVE THE TAPE HOLDING THE ROOF DOWN, IT WOULD FLY OFF WHILE DRIVING, PUTTING MYSELF AND OTHERS IN DANGER. MECHANICAL MALFUNCTION (AND POOR MANUFACTURING IN MY OPINION) IS THE MAIN PROBLEM THAT HAS CAUSED THIS ISSUE. I HAD USED THE SLIDER LESS THAN 10 TIMES BEFORE THIS HAPPENED. I CONTACTED INSURANCE TO OPEN A CLAIM AND THEY SAID IT WOULD FALL UNDER MECHANICAL MALFUNCTION AND THAT WAS NOT COVERED IN MY COVERAGE.
