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.

1997 Jeep Cherokee Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 062006

Cherokee Limited 4.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,099 miles


my remote controls started wearing out. Jeep could not replace them because they changed suppliers and tried to sell me a complete new and expensive alarm/immobilizer/door opening system. I refused. Then they told me to remove the old system at my cost...quite expensive again. After a few months of pushing and pulling they agreed to remove the old system and the consequence is that I can not use the remote any more to open and close doors...I use the key and alarm/immobilizer is also disconnected since then. It was a very unpleasant situation and it is scandalous that Jeep could not just replace my remote control....little piece of plastic.
