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 cheerokee evaporator failure in ac system. From internet research this is a very common issue. Heard evaporator metal material corrodes (not compatible) with R134 refrigerant. Didn't realize the extent of issue until 2009.

I have replaced 3 window regulators in my 2001 Jeep Cherokee within the past 2 years, each costing me from $250 to $330. I have talked with Chrysler about this issue and they are aware of the bad design but are not going to help me pay for the next window regulator. A few months ago when the 2nd window regulator failed, the window slowly slid down and it was raining pretty hard, a truck passed by while we were pulling out onto the street and splashed my 1 year old daughter with mud/debri and water. I feel Chrysler needs to step up and take action of their known problems and get this resolved before we see a serious injury.

The end of 2001 we saw the paint was cracking on our 201 Jeep Cherokee. We brought it to the dealer we brought it from and they refused to repair the hood and front of our Jeep. The refusal was made due to the fact that it has been repainted once. We bought the vehicle new and have not done any work to it. We are currently perparing for small claims court to have it repaired. This is our fourth Jeep and our last because of this. This problem should have been taken care of at our dealer and should never have had to go though this hassel. The vehicle was bought at forest lake Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep in forest lake, Minnesota. This is suppose to be a five star dealership.
