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.

I bought this Jeep June 25th 2015. I have had it in the shop 3 times, and I continue to have the same problem. The problem is with the traction control system. Repairs have been done to the traction control system even before I bought the vehicle. The car fax shows where it had been in the shop to have the struts were replaced back on April 25, 2014. It also shows that it had to have two tires replaced on 6/8/2015. I have taken the vehicle in 3 times to have the same issue corrected. Work orders from 7/18/2015, 8/25/2015 and 9/3/2015. I continue to have problems with it that I do not drive it. I feel it is unsafe. I feel any moment I could cause an accident that could hurt myself or someone else. The vehicle has swirled two times on me so bad that it almost caused me to hit the wall. If I had not stopped the vehicle fast enough, I would have hit the wall. If a car would have been on my right, I would have hit it. The vehicle had to be towed from the service road of the highway.
