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.

Grand Cherokee V8

I just bought this jeep from a used car dealer, they told me and my fiance that we have a 2 year warranty on the vehicle. not even 2 weeks in my possession the steering rode fell off. now we brought the car to the mechanics that they work with. The mechanic tells us that the dealer doesn't pay for any other problems but transmission and engine. we looked over the contract and it states that any performance or safety repairs the dealer has to fix with no questions asked. now, we are assed out cause now the dealer doesn't want to help fix our car. this right here is called TISBS.....
