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

Cherokee 4WD

After purchasing the vehile, it was driven for roughtly 3,000 miles before the problem happened. I took it to Jeep to have it looked at and they said that the rotors were warped and needed to be resurfaced. After it was fixed and driven it was fine until about another 3000 miles and the problem occured again, so it took it to Jeep to complain and they just resurfaced the rotors and ignored my compliants. And again it is still recurring. When you go to slow down at any speed the car violently shakes B/C of the warped rotors and it makes it hard to slow down, especailly at high speeds. This problem really increases the stopping time necessary to slow the car. If I had to make a quick stop it would be very hard. It is obviously a malfunction and Jeep is ignoring the problem. I've talked to some people and they say it is either the rotors they give are bad or they were mounted at the plant incorrectly which cause the rotors to warp. It is not my driving which Jeep likes to blame it on, and I'm sure many other people get the same response from them.
