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.

2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 132012

Grand Cherokee Limited 4.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 159,000 miles


I was driving down the street, and a neighbor saw white smoke coming out of the exhaust pipe. I stopped immediately and I was told not to drive it. The anti freeze was mixing with the oil !!

It cost mega bucs to be repaired, but I did because I like the Jeep. Has ANYONE else had this problem?? I purchased this Jeep new, and I was using synthetic oil, at an extra expense. No more. I do have the oil changed at 3,000 miles, now I do 5,000. There have been additional problems since this repair. I am hoping there was a defect that Chrysler had and I can get some of that money back !
