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.

2001 Jeep Cherokee Owner Comments

problem #2

Nov 152004

Cherokee 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 21,500 miles


Had problems w/ front end shaking violently when I hit a bump, changed lanes or put on the brakes at freeway speeds. Thought it was a brakes or alignment problem, but after having brakes replaced and the alignment checked, I resorted to going to the Jeep dealership. After dealer replicated the symptoms, informed me of a technical service bulletin from last year and then replaced the entire suspension system under warranty. (note: The car had 18,000 miles on it at the time.) the symptoms are returning less than a year later. This should be covered under a recall.
