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

Sep 192004

Grand Cherokee 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
The vehicle is a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo and was a rental vehicle. I found out that it is possible to have this vehicle in park, but not have the shift lever locked in the park position. My wife (in the passenger seat) bumped the shift lever as she reached for one of the A/C controls. She was alone in the vehicle. The vehicle went into reverse and rolled backwards across a macdonalds parking lot into another vehicle. This incident had significant possibility for death and/or serious injuries. Police were called but declined to respond to an incident on private property.
