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.

2016 Jeep Cherokee Owner Comments

problem #2

Sep 122016


  • 2,400 miles


I had my 2016 Jeep Cherokee in to service at about mileage 1800. The Jeep dealer reported to me that he upgraded my software to the latest and greatest and produced a software upgrade number which meant nothing to me, but the dealer assured me that certain fixes were addressed, including the important parking break improvement, where if the car is placed into park, and the driver door is opened, then the parking-break would/should be automatically engauged. Yesterday, the first time this feature should have been automatically activated, it did not work. I am usually very good in deploying the parking break, but not this one time -- I pulled up on the switch rather than pushed it down to deploy the parking break (or opposite.) my point is that the automatic deployment of the parking break did not occur. Further, in the waining California sun, the amber led used by Fiat/Chrysler is not sufficient and a really poor color choice. It is impossible to see the led on the parking break. What kind of stupid chooses a led that is probably the least visible to see? the led matches the color of the sun (sort of.) green is much more visible. Red is better than amber.
