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.

Driver door latch failed due to splitting metal in door. Door opened at highway speed. After the event I researched the problem and found that it is a very common occurrence. This is highly dangerous and need to be addressed immediately.

Grand Cherokee

  • miles
The contact owns a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee. When the contact attempted to open the door, the front driver's side door handle fell off of the vehicle. The failure prevented him from exiting the vehicle from the passenger compartment. He took the vehicle to the dealer and they replaced the entire door panel at the cost of over $160. Secondly, the technician stated that the component failed because it was made out of pot metal. The VIN and mileages were unknown.
