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 #2

Grand Cherokee 4WD

  • Automatic transmission
  • 160 miles
Vehicle lurches to the right, dealership replaced all rims and tires, thus making the problem slightly better. Mechanic said it was a "design flaw" nothing could be done about it and to call the service manager, the service manager said "all vehicles in Colorado drift to the right due to road crowns". my jgc still drifts to the right within 5-10 seconds on all types of roads. I bought this vehicle two weeks ago, it has 800+ miles on it.

problem #1

Jan 012004

Grand Cherokee 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 200 miles
The ability for steering control of the vehicle, most notably at highway speeds, is very difficult. The vehicle appears to have a gap of sloppy space in the steering. After driving multiple new 2004 Grand Cherokee I have discovered that this is a common problem, although the degree of gap or sloppiness varies by vehicle.
