Fuel Leak; found 2 hoses dislodged !!!
 
I got my new Overland last week on 27 June 2012 from Perth ( Australia )dealer. Today whilst filling up, cashier tells me she saw leak from my car. I checked and was surprised to find fuel on the tyre rim just below the fuel tank. 20 mins later, still see drips. Called the RAC. Mechanic thought I had over filled but I said no. He was shocked when he looked under and found leakage widespread in that area and 2 hoses had been dislodged.
Car now waiting to be towed to a Jeep authorised service center on Monday. Huge risk of fire or explosion I think ?? Thank God did not. Anyone had similar problems ?

Thanks JRNYC for your concern. UPDATE : The dealer I bought from co-ordinated with my local suburb dealer to ensure the problem was fixed quickly and I got my car back within the day. The hoses that were found are 'breather' hoses or overflow hoses when fuel is filled to the top. They were not connected or clipped in at all from the Jeep factory. So beware JGC owners. Same thing could happen to you. If in Perth, buy from John Hughes. I am glad I did. They are a powerful dealership that can have influence on other dealers to get things sorted.
