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 #1

Oct 022005

Grand Cherokee 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 72,200 miles
2003 Jeep Liberty ball joints replaced approx. 30,000 miles under manufacturer recall, at that time vehicle was making significant road noise from the front end suspension. Dealer replaced lower ball joint assembly at that time. Approx. 66,000 miles vehicle was taken to dealer to find source of front end noise again, dealer could not duplicate and stated there was no problem. Approx. 71,000 miles vehicle taken back to dealer for same problem because it was getting worse. I had a factory authorized repair technician go on a test drive with me on September 23, 2005. Within about a minute of the test drive the technician stated that it was most likely the lower ball joint assembly and that he believed the recall had been extended to lifetime. I scheduled an appointment to bring the vehicle in for repair on September 27, 2005. The dealership had the vehicle the majority of the day and could find nothing wrong. They stated that the ball joints looked fine. On Sunday October 2nd, 2005 the lower ball joint on the driver's side failed. Fortunately it was a speed of under 5 mph as we were turning out of a parking lot. The front driver's side suspension had collapsed. Vehicle was towed to the dealership Sunday evening. Currently waiting on the dealership's response. This is a repeat failure and a major safety issue that to date the dealership has chosen to ignore.
