Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2 ball joints cost $122.40 2 hub and bearing assembly $904 front end alignment $49.95 labor $246 tax $70.84 total1401.69 my extended warranty covered all but $50 the warranty cost me $1600. Work done by stengel bros.Inc.whitehall pa.18052. The vehicle was beginning to pull to the right when I first noticed it.thought the front end was out of alignment. After a week or so I bought a new set of tires, and went to have the front end aligned when I was told of the problem. The stengel bros. Are well known for outstanding work!they also told me it looked like water got in the hubs or bearings. Never used my Jimmy off road. And held maintenance every 4 to 5000 mi. At most. Also had a lot of trouble with it jumping in to 4X4 low. Had it repaired 4 times. Along with other minor problems. As of 5/14/03 I sold it back to the dealer, and lost $5000 on the deal because of a so called smart buy. Which would of been ok. But because of mileage [51000] I was over from 36000[15000] miles X 20cents a mile, and $2000 because I turned it in early.just felt I could not trust the vehicle any more. Walked 5 mi. In dark one night and was towed in 3 times. I liked the vehicle, but it cost me $5000 to get rid of it which I can't express in words how un happy that makes me!! I work hard for a living,5K don't come easy.

At 12,270 miles we had no brake lights taken to the dealer and he replaced the turn signal and said that was the problem. That was in June. On July 6, 2001 the dash board lights flashed several times lighting all of the guages showing that the engine was not running, but it was still running. Engine light stayed on. Took the vehicle to the dealer who found multiple trans dtc's internal failure replace ignition switch and performed relearn. I am concerned that this vehicle will have more defects, please let me know if others are having the same problem. Thank you.
