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.

The HVAC unit does not work properly in the sense that the heat does not work in the winter and the A/C does not work in the summer. Through some research online, this seems to be a big problem and needs fixing at the manufacturers expense. The cost to fix this problem is around $1000 and is one that should not happen.

  • Automatic transmission

When driving my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee in cold weather with rain or any moisture on the windshield the HVAC ducts will blow cold air on the windshield causing the windshield to freeze quicker while decreasing my visibility while driving. The vehicle tends to have this problem 7 out of 10 starts and some times resets it self only when the Jeep has been sitting for at least 3 to 5 hours. The dealer claimed it was in working order but I told them there is a serious problem that caused me to nearly hit the car in front of me while driving when the windshield instantly started to freeze up. Luckily I kept spraying washer fluid to clear the window in time before I got into a major accident.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 42,000 miles
2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee 'blend door' breaks causing no heat to get to the windshield for defrosting. Dealerships state it is a $1200 - $1500 fix and it is very common for this problem to occur on most trucks of this model year. In winter months you cannot defrost your windshield or get heat to the interior. This fix is a mechanical flaw, not an owner issue yet Chrysler makes you pay to repair their faulty engineering.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 4 miles
Automatic climate control system failure leads to loss of windshield defroster. System failure is caused by failure of the blend doors to respond to user input. System failure results in loss of airflow through windshield defrost/defog vents. Operation of vehicle during inclement weather and system failure will result in decreased visibility through front windshield which could contribute to collision, loss of vehicle control, etc... no manual override of automatic system is possible. Repair requires removal of complete dash to remove and replace blend door assemblies.
