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 4WD 8-cyl

There is a pulsation in the brake pedal upon depression pulsation occurred because the brake rotors warped due to a design flaw in the brakes, per the dealership. The brake rotors and calipers were replaced but the problem recurred.

I recently had my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee rotors replaced at about 20,000 miles due to severe shimmers in my steering column when the brakes were applied.T all started at about 12,000 miles. Now I have 25,000 miles and the shim is starting once again Jeep must install the lowest quality rotors on the market and its not safe.

Rotor needs replacing every 7 months. Improper rotor was put on the vehicle to start with. I can pay to have the proper one put on now. The Cherokee shakes all over when you apply the brakes and is more difficult to stop. I have had a different rotor put on twice and Chrysler will not repair it again.

When applying the brakes the driver heard a loud noise coming from the front of the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for inspection. The mechanic informed the consumer that the rotors and brakes needed to be replaced. Please provide any additional information.

My wife & I were driving on I-95 South when my Jeep Grand Cherokee's check engine light came on but before we could do anything it shifted from drive to 2nd gear and went from 60mph to around 25mph while we were still in the 3rd inside lane of a 3 lane hwy so we proceded to pull off the hwy and check out the truck and also let it sit for awhile and in doing so the lite went off so we proceded to get back on and go straight home but as we tried to get on the hwy it happened again but this time we went from drive to 1st gear and we almost got rearended by an 18 wheeler but he moved over at the last second, where we got on there was no break down lane so we had to go for about a mile and in the process we started to loose the brakes do to problems ariseing from the ABS and also the engine was acting funny it started to shut off then it would speed up and it did it 3 or 4 times so when we got off we had the Jeep flatbeded to "greenwich Jeep" in greenwich, ct. Soon as it's fixed I'm getting rid of it but I did want to note the problem with you!
