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

Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 124,500 miles


I purchased the 02 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo and thank god I decided to drive it myself before letting my family member drive it. I was driving the Jeep down the freeway when suddenly it happened, the scary Death Wobble. "Death wobble is a rapid oscillation from side to side in your steering components and results in your steering wheel moving very quickly from side to side. It has earned this name because it feels like your Jeep is literally falling apart. When this occurs it becomes extremely difficult to control my Jeep and the only way to get it to stop is to slow down, sometimes it is necessary to come to a complete stop. One of the common myths about death wobble is that it doesn’t happen to stock Jeeps, only ones that have been lifted. This is not true, it is actually possible to have death wobble in ANY vehicle with a solid front axle.

Death wobble, so far all that can be done replaced and still an issue, very over sensitive front end.
