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 #3

Nov 262007

Cherokee 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100 miles


Safety belt retractors do not function consistently, belts hang in door opening and become caught in the latch/strike assembly when the doors are closed. This causes damage to the belt, requiring replacement. I have owned several Chrysler products (Dodge dart, Plymouth reliant, 2 Cherokee and other) and all have exhibited this problem.

I was able to duplicate the failure described on prime time. G3 seatbelts need recalled.

problem #1

(reported on)

Cherokee 4WD

  • miles
The seat belts did not fail, but the belt would catch on the door latch and was rubbing holes into the belt. Jeep was contacted about this problem on 2/14/01, they called and said that it was a "design flaw" but until more complaints were received, they would do nothing about it. Demontrond was also advised about the problem, but I was told that for them to look at it, it would cost me for them to look at it. The Jeep has been "traded.
