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.

2012 Jeep Compass Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 162011

Compass 4-cyl

  • 40,521 miles


Started around August 16,2014. When driving I would make a right hand turn the traction control light will come on and stay on for 2 blocks when the road is dry and the Jeep would start bucking and it will power down and shut off. This happens at the same road all the time. When it starts bucking and powering down it shuts off and I can not steer the Jeep. I almost got in accidents when this happens. We took the Jeep to savage 61 for them to check, they can not find anything wrong, we also contacted Chrysler corporation and filed a complaint. They said call savage 61 and have them look at it. Well we did that again they had the Jeep for over a month and can not find anything wrong. No codes or anything come up. In total it is about over 2 months in time this keeps happening. I feel this is safety issue I could get hurt in a bad accident. Please get back to me. I tried to call at the number but it tells me all lines are busy keep trying.I have a case number for Chrysler Corp. #[xxx]. thank you [xxx]. information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
