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 #1

Feb 152015

Grand Cherokee Limited 4.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 183,000 miles


I was heading to pick my wife up from work at 2 am. I was using the cruise control because of lite traffic. My Jeep suddenly began to accelerate uncontrollably. I hit the cruise control off button with no results. I pressed the brake pedal also with no results. I could not turn the key off due to losing the power steering and power brakes so I had to depress the brake pedal with my entire body weight to keep the car from

accelerating out of control. I finally got to a pulloff and turned off the ignition key. I tried to restart several times but it continued to run wide open each time. I got out raised the hood and proceeded to tap on all the little black boxes under the hood. I got back in the car and started it. it ran normally.

I Don't use the cruise control anymore, so far no problem but sure would like to use cruise control at times!!
