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

Grand Cherokee

  • 58,000 miles


In March, 2005, with 59,000 miles, my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee overland, which I purchased new in August 2002, needed a new rear differential. A replacement was also needed at 80,000 (July 2006), 86,000 (March 2007), and 98,000 (April 2008). As of this writing, the dealer has had the vehicle for over 3 weeks. In replacing first the bearings, then the gears, and then the "entire rear end", they have been unable to solve the problem. Attempts to contact Chrysler have been unsuccessful. No one at the 800 numbers can offer any solutions. I have an extended warranty, so the repairs have been covered, minus my $100 deductible. But, I don't think the number of repairs is questionable. I've found a number of sites with other individuals reporting the same problem on this particular body style/model. Perhaps there is a wide spread problem..
