The vehicle stalls, losing power steering and brakes in the middle of the road. It is critical to have this addressed before someone dies in a wreck. It also over heats to the point it will catch on fire.

The fuel neck into the fuel tank failed causing fuel to leak out of the vehicle. Upon inspection by 2 independent shops, it was determined that there was no physical damage or reason for the failure. The repair to the issue is for the entire fuel tank to be replaced at a cost of approximately $2,000. The vehicle has only 65,000 miles on it and used on highway driving conditions. The concern is that a manufacturing or design defect is the cause and because of the hazard created by the leak, is a serious issue and should be addressed by Jeep. Jeep has acknowledged that this issue should not occur and has offered some minimal assistance on repair costs, however my concern is with having to replace an entire fuel tank at 65,000 miles on a Jeep product and the safety concerns with the potential for this to occur without a root cause (other than product failure or defect). This should not be considered a 'wear and tear' part and have a much longer life than 65,000 miles. In addition, due to the design of the part, requires the entire fuel tank to be replaced at an excessive cost. The consumer expectation from Jeep is for a much more rugged, dependable and safe product which is what Jeep promises in their marketing and promise to consumers.

My oil filter housing has a leak and no one can get the part. Apparently this is happening to a lot of people as the part is in high demand. Jeep should issue a recall.

Wrangler 6-cyl

  • 60,000 miles
Four months after purchasing a used Wrangler unlimited I got a check engine light and codes P0205 and P0305. Upon reading up on these codes it is a very well known issue with the 3.6L pentastar engine. The injector coil had already been replaced in cylinder 5 so my guess is the previous owner had the same issue. It has slightly over 60,000 miles on it and is no longer covered under engine warranty. The first time it happened to me was after a 120 mile drive. I stopped for gas and when I turned the Jeep back on the check engine light was on.

For the last two months, whenever I attempt to fill my car with gasoline, shortly after I begin fueling the gas comes spraying back at me. In order to fill my tank, I must barely squeeze the nozzle such that the gas trickles out. Still if I don't perfectly stop and start at the right moment it will overflow. I called the dealership to see whether I was doing something wrong or if there was a recall, and they informed me it is a known and common issue but there is no recall. I went online after to check the Wrangler forums and it is, in fact, a very common complaint for which there is no recall.

Many service lights related to evaporation leak, dealer kept resetting, and replaced gas cap and paid for countless checks each time the service light came on over the course of a year. Finally discovered fuel was leaking out of the tank, and as a result I had to replace my fuel tank, fuel filler hose, fuel transfer tube, fuel vapor tube, fuel canister purge, and fuel supply tube at a high cost. When speaking to the dealer given the car is only 5 years old, they indicated that this is a common problem with Jeep Wrangler and that in that week alone they had done 4 or 5 fuel tank replacements. During all of this my vehicle was undriveable for 2 months.

Jeep has a known epic failure is design flaw in its 2014 Wrangler when it switched from a metal oil filter cooler housing to a plastic oil filter cooler housing. Hundreds of cases of the part breaking/leaking oil all over lower engine and exhaust which is a fire hazard. My part leaked oil over an unknown amount of time because I live with a gravel driveway.....now dealer shows me "metal" like glow to oil which could be engine failure.....hundreds of cases

Strong fuel smell from leaking fuel on top of fuel tank, especially when tank near full. Strong enough to smell anywhere around the car when parked whether it was running or not, even outside. Dealer diagnosed cracked fuel pump but unable to get the part due to backorder, no safety recall, no warranty. Obviously dangerous to to drive so had it fixed by independent mechanic. Pulled out fuel pump and the plastic was cracked all around the outside edge under the locking ring which was the source of the leaking fuel. Dealer and Jeep customer service offered no remedy. Beware of this problem if your Jeep jk has a strong fuel smell.

P0520 - engine oil pressure sensor circuit. Tsb- 18-034-14 rev.a issued: 07/15/147 there has been problems with the sensor for years, multiple forums with complaints related to this issue in not only Jeep, but many Chrysler 3.6 liter engines. The additional trouble with Jeep is it is not an easy fix the whole manifold has to be removed to be able to switch out the part. It is a 4 hour labor charge just to replace, as well as, many have been replaced and had problem recur.

When pumping gas, the fill tank will fill up and overflow, causing gas to spill out all over the vehicle. The has been going on for the last 60,000 miles. Every other Jeep model has had this fuel filter recalled, except the newer Wrangler. Gas pumping take over 10 minutes to fill overtime. When taken to the dealer, they charged me $90 to tell me the filter need replacing and would like another $89 to do so.

Everytime I fill up the tank of my 2014 Jeep Wrangler it spurts out gas and overflows spilling gas all over myself and the ground, which causes safety and bioenvironmental hazards. I have tried gas pumps at numerous other gas stations and I get the same results everytime. Wanting to investigate the issue behind why this is happening I went online and found multiple other cases with other mopar customers. Some people have had the issue fixed by having the gas tank replaced, but in some cases the issue returned.
