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.

Able to remove key from ignition while Jeep is in gear, car rolled at least a foot on flat ground. Twice in parking lot, once in garage -clear danger to those behind and along side of vehicle. Happened three times, now use handbrake to insure no accident.

Brought 2014 Jeep Compass in for a safety and emission inspection. 2014 Jeep Compass failed emissions test. 21000 miles. New York state. Jeep Chrysler has been unwillingly to provide loaner vehicle and correct the problem in a timely manner. My inspection is only good until the end of February and this manner needs to be urgently resolved.

problem #2

  • 2,000 miles
I was driving approximately 10 miles an hour in a parking lot and my engine stalled and began to smoke. I reached out to the dealership where I purchased my vehicle first and no one would return my car. There is an additional recall that impacts my vehicle which has to do with the hijacking of the vehicle navigational system/blue tooth. I cannot get resolution from the dealership. State line Dodge Chrysler Jeep dealer #45636/45636

I have taken this car 3 times to the dealer and now it is going on the 4th time to fix a squeaky sound. I am tired of returning. It needs to be fixed and by the way after 4 times I do believe it is considered a new car lemon.
