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.

Cherokee 6-cyl

  • 200 miles


Driving on the highway at 65mph when the gas pedal became unresponsive. There was still electrical power to the car but I could not accelerate. This has happened a total of 4 times on the highway twice before the transmission was replaced and twice after. All times I made it safely to the shoulder and could not get the Jeep in park. I shut the Jeep down and started it again, it fixed the issue. I was able to get the Jeep off of the highway and to the dealership.

2014 Jeep Cherokee. Consumer writes in regards to transmission problems. Very shortly after the vehicle was purchased, the consumer noticed spots on the driveway, which then progressed into a horrible whining and grinding noise. The vehicle started to shift erratically and the consumer did not feel she had control of the vehicle. The consumer made an appointment with the dealer, and after having the vehicle for a day, she was informed the entire transmission needed to be replaced. The dealer explained to the consumer, that part of the transmission was porous, which explained the stains on the driveway in multiple spots. The transmission was replaced under warranty.
