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.

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Owner Comments

problem #12

Nov 182006

Grand Cherokee 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,200 miles


I was in a head on collision that totaled my Jeep Grand Cherokee while I was 30 weeks pregnant. The airbags did not deploy. I spent the weekend in the hospital as a result, and the baby needed to be monitored because I was having contractions. I informed daimler Chrysler, they sent a letter with a brochure showing where the point of impact needed to be for the airbags to deploy, stating the car performed as it should have. However, in the brochure, it clearly indicates where the point of impact needed to be for the airbags to deploy, which is the same as where the point of impact was on the Jeep. I sent a letter back to daimler Chrysler via certified mail indicating this. I have had no response from them, and they will not give any information over the phone.
