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 4WD 6-cyl

  • 92,620 miles
While returning to my home in NJ from a trip to fl, I heard a loud thump from the rear passenger side of the car followed by a noticeable change in exhaust note. I pulled into a gas station a few miles away and inspected the vehicle. The rear portion of the exhaust was missing, from what appeared to be separation due to corrosion. The rear bumper melted at the point above where the exhaust tip extends. Of course, warranty coverage for this part expired at 8 yrs/80K miles.
