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.

2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Owner Comments

Grand Cherokee 4.7L

So, obviously I'm not the first to have problems with this car's brakes, but my incident was life threatening. I was living in the mountains and drove I-70 in Colorado. I was noticing the pulsating of my brakes more and more. I went to drive my brother to DIA and on my way back, I was driving downhill on Wadsworth. It was rush hour and the guy in front of me stopped abruptly. I slammed on my brakes and had brakes for a second before the pedal hit the floor and couldn't stop. I acted on pure reflex. I jerked my wheel, cut across 6 lanes of traffic, driving an uncontrollable 60 miles an hour. Luckily there were no cars coming the opposite direction. I yanked the e-brake and made it to a side road going uphill, amazingly untouched. I threw the Jeep into park and gathered my thoughts. I was very lucky but if I didn't get so lucky with the situation, I could have died or been seriously injured. The mechanic said its common for this part to fail at around the same amount of mileage. It was a rubber hose on the brake line right at my front-left wheel. Felt I should share.
