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.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 122004

Grand Cherokee 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 300 miles


Noise in passenger compartment while sitting idle or at a stop sign as a result of a faulty muffler/exhaust system. Took the vehicle in to dealership who notified Chrysler of the problem. Their solution was a piece of barb welded to the muffler. Did not fix problem. Dealer had engineer come in to look at repair. Engineer said it was good and the noise was "acceptable" because we are only sitting idle for 3% of the time on the road. Dealer acknowledged that the noise was still there and said it was Chrysler call and that there is nothing else to do. Took car to muffler shop where they immediately identified problem with existing muffler.
