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.

After a safety recall on a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee for possible fuel leak and ignition source, the vehicle was inspected by the dealer. The remedy was to install a new oem trailer hitch. An aftermarket trailer hitch was installed by me roughly 15 years ago. The inspection said the existing hitch passed and was ok, therefore the dealer did nothing. My contention is that the existing hitch in service for 15 years is not adequate. Corrosion has taken its toll and half of the structural integrity is gone, therefore it does not offer adequate protection to the tank making this vehicle unsafe. It is evident after waiting years to get this remedied by Chrysler that they are waiting for these older model Jeep to disappear to the recycle yard and therefore will not rectify the problem.

How long does it take to get factory recalls corrected? I was notified from Chrysler regarding the 2 Jeep I own. I took the '98 Jeep to firkins Jeep (2700 1st St. Bradenton, fl) twice for them to inspect the Jeep. Both times I had to take off work. (customer #[xxx]) 1/20/14. They told me that they had to wait for the parts from the manufacturer. It's now June!! N45 recall and B02 recall.

Grand Cherokee 6-cyl

I'm inquiring about an announced recall (N45) of the vehicle earlier this year. After about five months I've yet to receive a recall letter. The dealer doesn't seem to care. Chrysler tells me NHTSA is the holdup. NHTSA tells me it is in legal. I'm tired of the run around. Supposedly there is a safety issue with the placement of the fuel tank behind the rear axle. I've read Chrysler proposes to install a tow hitch on affected vehicles. That doesn't seem to hard a fix and surely doesn't require a half year or more resolution. If there is a safety issue why is it taking so long to resolve? if it's not a safety issue then I don't understand why a recall was issued. I am requesting that the issue receive some attention so it can be resolved. It has taken way too long already.
