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.

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Owner Comments

Okay, I've had this transmission rebuilt already one time before, and with the relatively low mileage of the vehicle you can understand my frustration when it goes out again. This time when it happened I wasn't the first one to notice. A friend of mine borrowed the Jeep a couple of times and then asked me if I noticed that the transmission had started slipping a little. I hadn't noticed the problem, but the next time I drove it sure enough, transmission was slipping like my tongue after I've had too much to drink. The strange thing about it was that it only seemed to happen between first and second. I was like okay, lemme check the transmission fluid. It was full. Okay, maybe I'll try putting some of that there trans-x stuff in it. Well, that made it worse. Don't do that if the transmission fluid is already full. I know I sound like a moron for trying, but by this point I already knew it was f*cked anyway.

The next day I took it to the shop, and they told me it wasn't slipping between first and second because second was gone. It was slipping through the remains of second on its way to third. I gotta give that Jeep credit for one thing. Even though the transmission was FUBARed twice it never once left me stranded. That damned thing takes a lickin and... well, you know the cliché (can't believe I found that little ' thing to put over the "e"). Anyways, once I got er fixed I went to pay for it with my credit card that was supposed to have a $3000 limit that I had just paid off, when it gets declined. Don't ever bank at Wells Fargo. They treated my fine for about seven years, but for some reason here recently they have been trying to screw me every chance they get. Shutting down my cards at the times when I need them most for no good reason other than I made a late payment or two. That was their fault anyway when they can't decide what time of the month my payment is supposed to be due, and they never send me anything in the mail. I just get an email once a month that my statement is ready to view, and that is just for my checking account. The credit card statements never even showed up. I would have to look at the account, and it would say "no payment is scheduled". I check back in a couple of weeks, and it's already past due. They expect me to come back every day just to check that status? I think I need to find a better bank. One where I can pick which day my credit card payment is due.

Anyway, I'm way off topic here, but thanks for asking me to rant. I know nobody reads these things, but it's fun to do anyway.
