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

  • 144,000 miles
The Jeep instrument cluster went dark and non operational as well as the power steering not working. Turn signals were not working as well. Driving 45 mph and this happens in a turn in the road almost causing a major wreck due to the power steering and turn signals not working. There are multiple complaints about this issue happening and the consumer having the ignition switch replaced to solve the problem. This issue is a major safety issue yet Chrysler issued a recall that does not have a fix. We were told by Chrysler that it is safe to drive the Jeep with the issues. However we do not feel safe in this automobile. If we knew this was going to be happening we would not have purchased the Jeep.
