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.

2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited - car is in good condition except for 3 of the 4 doors have handles casings that are cracked and the door handle is hanging off. The car is well maintained and garage kept. This started happening in the last year and has spread rapidly. All 3 doors have done it the same place and it has started with a crack and then grown into the pieces falling off and leaving the inner workings of the door fully exposed. This a grave safety issue and a recall needs to be issued.

Grand Cherokee 4WD 8-cyl

Brand new 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, right front passenger door was being opened, a gust of wind caught the door and hyper-extended it causing it to be misalinged. The next time the door was opened, the front lip of the door caught on the rear of the right front fender and caused a dent in the fender approximately 6 inches long and 3 inches wide. To properly fix damage, right front fender was replaced and painted, right front door was repaired and repainted, hood was repainted to blend with new paint on fender and door. Total cost of repairs was approximately $1,300. Important to note, no other damage to any other vehicles, property or people was caused by this gust of wind. It happened in a grocery store parking lot and there were lots of other people, cars and property around. Nothing else was damaged and the gust of wind seemed very minor. In 30+ years of driving I have never experienced damage to a door due to a wind gust nor have I ever heard from anyone I know of receiving damage to a door due to a wind gust. This appears to me to be a door hinge design flaw.
