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.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Owner Comments

problem #1

Grand Cherokee

  • Automatic transmission

For the hitch recall, I was told the hitch would be inspected, and they would decide if it needed to be removed. If it was removed, they would decide if it could be replaced or not. If they decided it couldn't be replaced, my Jeep would be returned without a hitch. I would then be referred to a body shop to install a new hitch at a "very high cost." Since I only use the Jeep as a tow vehicle, it is worthless to me without a hitch. If they remove the hitch, they should be responsible for replacing the hitch.
