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.

Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.O L

You never know when your car will shut off while driving, really freaky if you are slowing down and it cuts off and you are trying not to hit the car in front of you.

Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0L V6

I was told this is a common problem with the late model Jeeps, but Chrysler did not nor will not take steps to address the problem. It is extremely dangerous to drive a vehicle that suddenly cuts off while driving. I do not have plans to purchase another Chrysler product, they are garage. I have replaced so many components on my Jeep before it was 5 years old. I paid the vehicle off early and didn't want a car note, but there is a list of things I recall off the top of my head. ABS system Rotors (well known problem for Jeep) Transmission Sensors Replaced sensor (reverse lights stayed on while driving) Power Steering Hose Radiator Water Pump 2 oil sensors coolant fan thermostat alternator crank position sensor Emission leak valve gasket cover transmission leak CV boots and axles Rear differential
