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.

problem #1

Commander 4WD 8-cyl

  • 10,000 miles
Approximately 3 months after purchasing my Jeep Commander, it stalled with no warning. All the trucks lights lit up and the power steering would not work. I was able to start it back up and drive. I took it to the dealer and they were unable to help me as they could not recreate the issue. Since then it has happened an additional 2-3 times with the dealership still unable to help me. All times the truck has stalled out and I have been able to restart and drive away. The last time being in September of 2012 while driving on a freeway at approximately 65 mph.
