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.

On Sept.2, 2014 I had my 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee towed to the nearsest dealer, milford Chrysler, milford, pa. I was driving the day before with family when the vehicle suddenly stalled in an entrance to a parking lot just avoiding an accident. Message center showed key not detectable. Several attempts later it turned over. To play it safe I returned home to exchange vehicles. It was making hissing sounds so I left it out of the garage. The next day, it was still making noises. I called for a tow to the dealer. I called Chrysler and they advised me of a recall but that the engineers were still trying to determine why but that the tipm was malfunctioning. I was also told that a final recall would not come out for about 3 months! I had no choice but to get my vehicle repaired. They had to replace the battery, fuel pump, tipm for a total out of pocket cost of $2493.98. Chrysler eventually reimbursed me for the total amount. On November 20,2015 I went out and found that my blinkers did not work. In fact, when engaged, the fog lights blinked and or flashed. I took it to my original dealer, R.I. suresky in goshen, New York. They ran a scan and found that it was caused by the tipm ! this makes tipm #2!. I called Chrysler, the final verdict, it was not covered by the recall (fuel pump related only). The tech replaced the tipm yet again at an out of pocket cost to me of $1043.40. On October 21, 2016 the engine light came on. I have an appointment at suresky's on Monday October 24 to run a diagnostic on it. Could it be tipm related? we'll see. I feel that Chrysler owes me $1043.40 for having parts ( never available immediately by the way) that are defective and place people in very dangerous situations on the road.

The brake lights, turn signal lights, runninng lights keep blowing. At the same time usually the instrument guages also stop working. This is the 5th time we have had to take to be fixed. This is dangerous for us and other vehicles and is going to cause an accident. They could be working fine and go out between 1 place and another. We have been pulled over by police, had people in other vehicles yell at us and almost been hit while turning left due to lack of working signals and brake lights. This re-ocurring problem needs to be addressed properly.

The left rear brake light does not work when the headlights are on. There is an issue with one of the contacts in the brake light assembly. This has been an ongoing issue and has occurred multiple times. You have to bend the contact back out so it makes contact again.

For a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee the headlight glass(or plastic) has a gloss on it that dims the headlights and I noticed it on similar models of surrounding years. I purchased several products that were supposed to remove this glaze, without any correction. Chrysler says there is nothing that can be done regarding this matter.
