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.

1998 Jeep Cherokee Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 152005

Cherokee 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 82,805 miles


The contact stated the right front wheel locked in April 2004. Had to replaced the calipers on 6-22-04. On 9-15-04 had to replace the rotors, the calipers, the seals and the bra because they were burned out. On 9-15-05 the contact was having the same problems. She took vehicle to dealer and they told her the spindle was bad. The service dealership told her if she did not have the spindle replaced she would have the same problems as before. This repair will not be covered under the warranty. Updated 11/4/2005.
