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 #5

Grand Cherokee

  • 75,000 miles


Driving a Jeep 2003 mich LX tire 235/65/R17 sidewall dry rot, reported to mich they said it was the ozone, as a scientist and an ndt level 4 inspector I was surprised that the person they sent me to address the issue spent less than 10 minutes looking at the remaining 3 tires. The person refused to give me any written report the tires only have 15K on them. Michelin will not give me a voucher for 4 free tires I am afraid others will have the same issue the dry rot side wall will blow out and cause a death or several. Michelin recalled 1,3 million tires voluntarily but refuses to recall mine. Beware of Michelin tires.

I just had the valve stems replaced (due to cracking) on my Jeep. They were coded as TR413 (obviously the same dill number covered in the recall. However, these tires and valve stems were installed on my car in December of 2005 - clearly not manufactured during the August-December 2006 time frame of the recall. This raises the question about the dill/chinese valve stem problem being much larger than has been claimed. I am a retired former rubber chemist, and have run hundreds of ozone resistance tests on rubber compounds, so I am fairly familiar with what to look for. NHTSA should expand its investigation of this problem. I kept the old valve stems which were removed, and will make them available upon request.

Grand Cherokee 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 31,000 miles
2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The consumer stated driver's side rear tire sidewall disintegrated. There is only 31,000 miles on the vehicle. The rest of the tires were weather rotted. These tires have never been repaired. They were the original tires on the vehicle. Goodyear, P255/75R16. The tire was taken to the dealership. Instead, it should have been taken to Goodyear. There was no wreck when this happened. The tires were properly maintained. It is a leased vehicle.
