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.

The car had been sitting parked for 2 hours. No key in ignition. Looked out and saw fire coming out of the rear of the car. Lighting fixture was complete burned out as well as everything else ove to where the gas tank spout is. Fire dept came. Filled out a report. The head lights and other lights inside car kept coming on intermittently even after the fire was out. There was no key in ignition and the car had been sitting parked for 2 hours.

When it rains and the vehicle is stationary there is no obvious sign of a leak however when driving after the rain a steady stream of water comes out of the map light. It flows on to the radio and heater controls. I am very good about keeping a paper towel handy to absorb as much as possible. Unfortunately I now have an extremely wet carpet that is molding. Jeep states that I should clean the drains for the sunroof, which I do quite often. They also state that the vehicle is not under warranty and they can not offer a fix with out charging me. I have had this vehicle for just over a year and I purchased it from a Jeep dealer.
