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 Lorado 6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 190,000 miles


I actually have begun to rent a car till I can find someone to fix this. I don't have tons of money, this is eating into my savings big time. I've already dumped about $500 into the car and it's not fixed yet. WHY THE HELL ISN'T THERE A F**KING RECALL ON THIS ISSUE? ARE THEY WAITING FOR SOMEONE TO GET KILLED????

Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 155,000 miles

Experienced the "Death Wobble" going 55 mph.

The entire front end of my Jeep shook violently making it difficult to control the vehicle..

I experience this issue weekly and am not sure what is causing it?

It typically happens between 45 and 55 mph.
