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.

problem #1

Jul 082015

Grand Cherokee Limited 5.7L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 110,000 miles

When my ex-wife shifted from "Park" to "Reverse" the vehicle accelerated to more than 40 mph in reverse until it collided with two parked cars and sideswiped another. My vehicle was totaled one other vehicle was totaled, another severely damaged and another dented down one side.

The driver sustained injuries to her left leg, and right elbow in addition to a severe strain to her neck and additional injuries to her lower stomach.

This is the second time this has occurred with this vehicle. Someone should open a "Class Action" lawsuit against Chrysler.

I may do it myself.
