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.

I purchased in November 2012 and ever since with each rain storm my interior floods and it is starting to affect electronics. I have service 4WD system after N23 recall and vehicle won't shift into 4 lo. I have service park assist and TPMS warning and had all four sensors replaced with warning recurring. I recently started losing all four door speakers intermittently and when they do work they sound horrible. Display on radio is starting to go black and dim. I have lights on dash display flash on and off when they want. I have crazy RPM fluctuation at idle and recently transmission feels like it is trying to shift and RPM fluctuations when cruising at hwy speeds. I have bumped the key on multiple occasions and the vehicle is essentially shut off and still moving. Most problems have just recently begun and haven't taken to dealer yet but after reading about many of the same problems and Jeep not owning up to any of them, I don't have the money to chase phantom problems that the dealer can't recreate and change parts and hope it fixes the problem. I don't feel safe driving the vehicle and have to dry the vehicle out after every rain. I am about to have to write it off as a loss and buy a new vehicle which will not be a Jeep. I guess hundreds of people will have to die for Jeep to man up and admit they made a terrible unsafe vehicle and quit making their customers pay for their mistake.

Recently had to have sunroof drains cleaned for second time in the last 14 months at a cost of $500 each time. Heberts town and country in shreveport, la tells me that drains are clogged and this is causing water to leak into the cabin of the vehicle. They also mentioned that they can't warranty any of the work B/C an actual part hasn't broken. Very convenient for them. We parked the vehicle in a garage in the evenings and made sure we didn't park under any trees at other times that may clog drains, but they got clogged. I'm not sure how clean you have to keep vehicle to keep drains from clogging, but I effectively have a Jeep that can't get wet or dirty. Completely contrary to any advertising done by Jeep claiming how rugged their vehicles are.

The contact owns a 2007 Jeep Commander. The contact stated that every time it rained the front of the vehicle became flooded. The contact took the vehicle to a glass facility to have the sun roof diagnosed and was told there were no clogs in the drain pipes that could cause the failure. The dealer had not inspected the vehicle, but the contact was concerned that the failure was caused by the seals on the doors. The contact stated the failure also caused the dome light on the interior of the door to come on after it rained and was worried about a possible electrical manufacturers defect. The VIN was not available. The failure mileage was 40,000 and the current mileage was 45,000.
