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.

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 252003

Grand Cherokee 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 18,000 miles


Gas pedal depressed during braking when wearing boots or larger size shoes resulting in acceleration instead of braking. Several times I have pressed on the brake only to have my right portion of the tread on my size 11 construction boot was also pressing gas pedal causing the truck to accelerate. Gas pedal and brake pedal seem too close together. This is my third Grand Cherokee('93, '96, recent '02) and only this '02 seem to have this problem. This is probably the cause of others reporting accelerating symptoms.
