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

problem #2

Jul 012005

Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0L Straight 6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 85,000 miles


Rear rotors which were only 35,000 miles old wore out. At the same time the axle seal was failing so at least it called attention by the grinding before the rear end went dry and would have blown. Brakes again, what can I say but these trucks have very undersized and badly designed brakes which undoubtedly will need attention regularly.

Plan on replacing pads and usually resurfacing rotors every other year. Buy the best but not the hardest brake pads you can get and KEEP AN EYE ON THEM. Doing that will get decent service and not cost you too much. Get aftermarket parts, way cheaper and quality has to be better than the Jeep OEM stuff. Don't wait too long and let them get too far worn down and they won't usually cost you much beyond a set of pads to fix.

Spent over $500 to fix the problem of brake noise for the front and rear brake. I am still hearing noise that sound like it needs replacing again.
