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.

problem #2

Apr 032006

Grand Cherokee 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 43,000 miles
: the contact stated while driving at no particular speed, the steering column made a popping noise. This occurred while turning the steering wheel to the right. The vehicle was taken to the dealer numerous times for inspection. The dealer replaced the brakes; however, that made no impact on the popping noise.

problem #1

Grand Cherokee 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 150 miles
The steering column vibrates when turning the wheels (usually at lower speeds). Took it to the dealer 3 times, first time they replaced the hoses, second time replaced the steering column, and the third time they stated this was a problem with a piece of metal in the column that vibrates due to a small gap within the steering column. I was told this would be a few months, however, 6 months have now passed and I still have the problem. One side note, it seems to do it less in colder weather!
