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. Notes: The 2014 Jeep Cherokee shows an early trend of transmission complaints. Most of the complaints are for rough shifting — things like jerking & hesitation when shifting gears.

We are keeping an eye on things but the 2014 Cherokee doesn't look like a good model year compared to past years.

problem #2

Feb 222014

Cherokee 6-cyl

  • 3,600 miles


Was coming to a stop at an intersection. Had only driven 20-30 yards from where I was parked. Going very slowly but brake did not respond and I hit another car coming on the outside lane. No medical injuries but considerable damage to my car and more to the auto I hit. Had received a recall notice just a few days before. Have reported to Chrysler and was told I would receive a call in a few days which I have never received. I feel I am being stonewalled. Also am aware there have been other incidents like this which Chrysler must have known about.
