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 6-cyl

The contact owns a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The contact heard a squeaking noise coming from the front end of the vehicle while driving 20 mph. She stated that the vehicle rides roughly. When the brake pedal is depressed, the vehicle makes a snapping noise. The dealer stated that the front brakes pulsate. Approximately one year ago, the brakes, front rotors, and pads were replaced. The current and failure mileages were 30,470.

Grand Cherokee 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 14,000 miles
At approximately 14,000 miles, my 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee began to pulse when I hit the brakes. This caused the whole car to shake and scared my wife, and my two young daughters. I took the car to the Jeep Chrysler dealership. They said the rotors had to be resurfaced. For a brand new car, I feel the rotors are defective. They should not need resurfacing so soon. They also claimed that nothing was wrong with the brake pads. This implied that I was hard on my brakes. I have driven a Ford, a Toyota, a Saab, Mercury, BMW and other models. This has never happened before. I also found in my research that other people have had the same experience with the Jeep Grand Cherokee as I have-low mileage the rotors had to be resurfaced. I contacted the Jeep Chrysler company. They have refused to admit wrong doing. I feel this is a safety hazard due to a defective product. I would appreciate if ntsb would look into this matter.
