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

May 032012

Compass 4-cyl

The first time, the check engine light went off I drove to the dealership and it was checked and returned, 2 weeks later the light turned on and the vehicle was taken back to the dealership, some oil applied to the connectors and returned. Yesterday, the light went off again while driving at 50mph, the vehicle stopped abruptly, the steering wheel didn't move and the engine stopped. Upon trying to restart the ignition, it kept starting by itself over and over. Now you can't accel the vehicle while in drive. The right strut was replaced on Feb 2012 because it broke.
