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.

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Owner Comments

problem #2

Jun 092010

Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 127,500 miles


I had my jeep In the Dealership garage for a few weeks prior to this for the electrical issue I described earlier. After one week of driving it I was on my way home from work when all of a sudden I just lost my transmission - no noises not clunks no nothing. So I had my mechanic pick it up and had him install a used transmission. I paid extra for this transmission to get a year warranty with it. this also covered the labor for a year, Good thing because it took 3 transmissions to get a good one and another month without my vehicle. Overall, between the electrical issue and the transmission, my vehicle was in the garages for 4 1/2 months and $5000.00 later. I bought my jeep used so I was still making payments on it, otherwise it would be in the junk yard.

Brought it in for service as I noticed a hard shift at around 30mph. They put in a new software program and trans. fluids $250 worth out of pocket. 2 weeks later on a road trip the transmission went out in another state. I had to rent a car to get home. Have an extended warranty and they are "not sure" if it is covered!! A transmission should last longer than 2 years and isn't this why you get an extended warranty.
