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.

1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Owner Comments

Grand Cherokee

  • 102,000 miles


The contact owns a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee. While driving various speeds, the vehicle stalls without warning. Upon further inspection, the contact concluded that the fuel pump and regulator were the causes of the failure. The vehicle has not been repaired. The dealer stated that the VIN was not included in NHTSA campaign id number 06E011000 (fuel system, gasoline:delivery:fuel pump); therefore, they would not assume responsibility for any repairs. The failure and current mileages were 102,000.

Grand Cherokee

  • miles
Was driving on the highway. At about 65mph, the engine started revving from 3500 RPM all the way to 6000 RPM, but the speed didn't increase at all. Took the car to the shop and the mechanic said they ran a full diagnostics check and found nothing wrong with the Cherokee. So I drove the Jeep for another month until it died on one early morning. I went to start the Jeep just like every morning, but this time the engine won't even turn or make a sound. The gauges indicators went beserks and bottomed out at the max. It looks like an electrical problem. I have yet to find out what exactly is wrong with the Jeep when I take it in to the dealer today.
