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

The car wanders, and loses the ability to steer. The problem is intermittent, and has been for 5000 miles. The vehicle has been back to the dealership 3 times, and repaired twice. It was in an accident, due to the problem, and was inspected, but they found no problems at the time. It's intermittent, they know that but don't care. The dealership/manufacturer refused to work on the car, and the problem still exists to this day. There is an investigation of this issue in similar model cars now from the same time period, though it was apparently not on the books when the accident occurred, as my insurance company looked for similar reports but found none.
