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.

My Jeep is currently back at the dealership for the second time because the ESC turns off/on own its own. The first time this happened, the ABS and check engine lights came on and stayed on. The dealership said it was a faulty sensor and replaced it. Now a few months later it is doing the same thing again, and now the windshield wipers come on when I use the left/right turn signals, turn the headlights on, and sometimes just driving down the road. I do not feel safe driving this vehicle. The dealership service manager stated to my husband that its not safe for the vehicle do this. However, the dealership says that the vehicle does not display an error code, and they cannot recreate these issues. Vehicle also makes a grinding noise when turning and the steering feels very vague and bouncy. These issues happen randomly during both city and highway driving. My Jeep is a 2014 Compass, fwd, 5-speed manual transmission. It has been at the dealership for over a week this time. The ESC issue is a safety issue, as well as, the wipers. It seems to be an electrical issue and makes me wonder if the airbags, ABS, cruise control, etc. Are at risk of failure to operate properly.

Compass 4WD 4-cyl

  • 11,000 miles
On 4/26/2014 I was driving on a 4 lane road at 30 mph when car started acting sluggish and jerky. I pulled to the farthest right hand part of the road and car then completely died. Was able to coast to the shoulder and 3 men assisted me in pushing car out of the of the road. Car would not start and had to be towed/ flatbed to dealer. Car is 8 months old with approx 11, 000 miles. The dealer stated it was the ignition coil. When they tested it they found no spark, dtc for coil ionization P2302. Tested and found no power at coils. Tested and found blown fuse, replaced fuse and tested, blows fuse after 30 seconds. Tested and found 4 coil melted/grounded. Coil would not come out due to meltage. Had to break coil and remove debris from tube. They replaced coil. Dealership stated they have not come across this before. Received vehicle back on 4/29/2014.
