While pumping my gas the gas began to backflow up in poor everywhere and all over the car and the ground at the gas station and on my hands. This clearly is unsafe for one it is a huge fire hazard it is dangerous towards ones health and also the environment. I have read elsewhere of other people numerous people with this same issue since 2007 in Chrysler vehicles and am unsure why they would not yet have a recall on this issue by now. With that said I definitely think that someone needs to put a stop to this fire hazard before some one is seriously injured. I guess they are waiting for something "dangerous" such as some one seriously getting burned before they actually take this issue seriously.
