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.

Recall sent in October 2014 and as of today February 12,2015 the replacement part has still not been sent out to the dealer and there is no future date even discussed. If this is a danger and my research shows that in fact if the car ignition goes off, it can be very dangerous, then this delay is not acceptable.

Grand Cherokee

  • 96,872 miles
Had truck for 800 miles since purchase used from the original owner. I am 6'5" tall. Was driving on the freeway when the ignition key (1.5" from my knee) accidentally turned the truck off due to contact with my knee. Under different circumstances, loss of power steering, most braking, and possibly airbags could be very dangerous. Hours later I read a story in the mountain news newspaper about a driver leaving the highway due to this same Jeep problem. That accident was two weeks ago and the vehicle and trailer overturned on hwy 18. I mentioned this issue to a friend who had the identical 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee and he said the knee/key issues happened to him "several times" before he sold it. He is 6'6" tall. Secondly, all four interior door handles are falling apart and failing due to brittle plastic. They break with no notice and would prevent emergency egress from the vehicle. While it would be possible to roll the window down and open the door from the outside, with the ignition accidentally shut off that would be a problem. This is an essentially universal problem with this door handle design.

Recall P 51 - faulty ignition switch... reported to owners, September 2014... Jeep has not provided a fix and do not have any idea when it will be available... I called Jeep the customer service number on the recall notice and the voice system puts you on hold forever (I finally hung up after 1 hour)... it's obvious that Jeep doesn't want to fix this problem... you need to make them do it... thanks...
