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.

Took vehicle to mechanic for inspection.I was informed that one of the front ball joints and tie rod was bad. This vehicle has never been used off road! I have been on a number of Jeep forums and it's apparent that the ball joints have been a big problem with these vehicles.I guess they are waiting for a serius accident accident and some one gets seriously hurt or worse killed before they make a recall like they did with the Jeep Liberty's!
