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

"Death wobble" almost did me in on my last trip from LA to San Francisco on Highway 5. It happened twice - once when I was in the right lane and the second time when I was in the left (fast lane) with bumper-to-bumper trucks in the right lane.

This first happened in September, 2015. My solution, at that time, was to immediately pull off to the the shoulder, slow down to about 45 mph and when the "wobble" subsided, return to the highway. On this last trip, however, it was tough/impossible to do when I was in the left lane. I thought that I was going to loose control of the car and crash. I was terrified that the guy behind me would run me over before I could move over to the right lane (there was no shoulder on the left ) get off of the highway and then get control of the car.

I thought that I had had the problem fixed, but was sadly mistaken. Now, I have had the steering stabilizer bar replaced (about $200) and will hope that the problem is in the past.
