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.

Cherokee 4WD 6-cyl

  • 156,000 miles


I just found out I have a cracked manifold, my driver side door has broken put a new part in it and now that is broken, I have also had to put a new transmission in it with only $148,000 miles. In 2006 I had to fix the gas tank because it was broken too. Is this not a recall problem"???" any of these, I have had the Jeep since 2000 and I bought it when it had 20,000 miles on it. Please help because this is 2012 and I only have 156,000 miles on it now. Thank you.
