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 4WD 6-cyl

My nephew died in a fire after he was impacted from the rear while avoiding debris/people in the highway. www.wggb.com/2013/11/11/state-police-say-they-have-truck-linked-to-I-91-deadly-crash-investigation/..updated 02-04-14 the Jeep was traveling slightly faster when it swerved suddenly into the path of the tractor trailer to avoid debris in the road. The Jeep's left rear impacted the tractor trailer's front (right front?); the Jeep spun 180 degrees, impacted the opened lift gate of a pick-up truck stopped on the breakdown lane, bounced off and impacted the guardrail. It appears all three impacts were to the rear or left rear of the Jeep. It appears the Jeep's driver was on fire before he was ejected from the Jeep. Updated 2/12/14

While driving, heard constant noise. Took vehicle to dealer for service who stated that exhaust manifold needed to be replaced. The exhaust manifold cracks gradually and is noticeable when the vehicle is cold. Any air leak in the firewall allows exhaust fumes to enter the vehicle.
