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

problem #11

Grand Cherokee 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Vehicle makes a knocking noise. Noise appears to be coming from area of front passenger tire area....my mechanic has replaced the shocks, control arm bushings and transmission mount strap and track bar bushings....this has not solved the problem. The Jeep dealership in North charleston, SC has replaced the sway bar links and basically rebuilt the rear end....still knocking persists. Jeep advises noise is normal...I disagree. Jeep worked on this vehicle about 2 years ago...my mechanic in January of 2003. Knocking only occurs over light bumps, roughness in road...or on dirt roads. Knocking especially loud when turning a corner. Would really appreciate any information on this. Also, in mornings especially when cold outside when you put Jeep into reverse a loud whining noise coming from rear. Have had transmission fluid changed, but did not help.

The vehicle would shimmy at 60 mph, 3 out of the 4 Goodyear Eagle ga tires (P225/70R15) experienced tread separation, a few months after the tires were replaced, the vehicle began to shimmy again and the dealer performed a front end alignment.

Problem is a vibration that comes in at 62-67 mph, local dealership agree's, but Chrysler denies problem. I am worried about the possibility of the wheels locking up at 60 or 70mph. Chrysler refuses to address the problem.
