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.

2010 Jeep Compass Owner Comments

Compass 4WD 4-cyl

  • 100,000 miles


Manual transmission car was revving high after shifting gears. Rpms were approximately 4000 once shifted into second gear going 20 mph. Called dealership to schedule an appointment for the following week. The next day in the highway the car had no power. Would only be able to go 40mph in a 65 in 5th gear. It was a 20 minute drive to work. On the way home on the highway, the same issue with lack of power. 5 minutes into the ride I heard a pop and lost all power to the car. Was able to get to the side of the highway. Got my insurance paper out of the car to call a tow truck and got out of the car. Had my back to the car and turned around and the car was engulfed in flames. Fire department had to came to put the fire out. The car is totaled.
