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.

2015 Jeep Compass Owner Comments

problem #2

Dec 302015


  • 8,000 miles


The power steering return hose was in contact with the front suspension sway bar at curb condition with the vehicle stationary. The sway bar moves a couple inches with suspension travel and this will rub on the power steering hose considerably and can where a hole causing loss of power steering assist and a flammable fluid spraying in the engine and exhaust area. I know for a fact that fca has been shipping vehicles like this in direct violation of their safe design guidelines or at least 1.5 years now from July of 2014 until now. I worked at fca in 2014 and told them to contain this issue on multiple occasions and I was ignored by my fca management and plant quality people.
