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.

Grand Cherokee 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100 miles
Purchased vehicle on 7-31-06. Upon test drive the door locks would nt lock or unlock when using door key (any dr in the car). The remote did work. Salesman told us 2 bring it in if it cont'd. taken in 5 times since the 1st time in October 05', dealerships cannot dupt the issue. Last dealership said that if he toggled switch about 10 times it happened, but that was just "overheating the button & that is normal". problem is I work in a building w/a prkg garage & work all hrs. When I get into my car, 4 safety I lock the drs immed. There have been several occasions where I can't do that & have 2 wait 2 get the car moving over the 15mi an hour 2 lock the drs. Next issue is the delayed engagement in the transmission going 2 rev or drv. The car has been in on 3 occasions for this item of which the dealership clears codes or cannot dupt the issue. This issue became a an issue in a construction zone at a rr track near our home. Gates were down when I drove up & I was 3rd car back, the gates went up, 2 cars went through & I was almost at the tracks when the railroad arms started coming down again. I put on the brakes & shifted to reverse 2 back up & the delay nearly caused the rr arm 2 hit the car. I backed up just enough to clear the rr arm by less than 6 inches. The last item is the A/C. since late March of 06' we have been experiencing the A/C blowing cold, then the air turns 2 warm or hot air blowing from 3 sec 2 minutes of blowing humid air before the system will kick in again with cold air. This has been intermittently like the other 2 items above. 3 times into the dealerships & again it was stated they fixed it when it wasn't or "it's 114 degrees out, it is going 2 blow warm air". "using outside air will make the A/C blow warm air'. the incident date is hard since there are 3 issues so I put the day of purchase. The failures are also hard to calculate, but since these items happen intermittently & or everyday (A/C) I counted 3 mo worth.
