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 Owner Comments

problem #3

Nov 172010

Grand Cherokee

  • 80,000 miles


On the drivers door, the plastic of the panel supporting the interior door handle has broken leaving the handle unmounted and useless. Obviously, this is a safety hazard as it takes more time to egress the vehicle in an accident.

problem #2

Sep 102009

Grand Cherokee

  • 70,000 miles
The interior door panels (all 4) at the handle are cracking and breaking. Many times the doors have to be opened from the outside. I contacted Jeep and was told they have never heard of this problem, that I was the only person to report it. They told me it was normal wear and tear and that they were not responsible.

The passenger side window on my 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo will not roll up (after dropping down into the door on the highway).
