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 8-cyl

  • 89,000 miles
In the past 6 months roughly, my husband has accidentally knocked the key of our Jeep while commuting to/from work a lf a dozen times and the vehicle shut off while traveling over 60 miles per hour on a busy minneapolis freeway. Fortunately, it has not resulted in an accident (yet). It happened again just last Wednesday! we did receive at least 2 recall notices from Jeep, however, when we call to schedule the appointment, the dealership has informed us that they have not received the parts yet. I called again yesterday and it was the same story. So I called Chrysler directly. They gave me the same story and offered absolutely nothing other than tips to try to not knock the key, which we have tried them all already. The vehicle is not safe!! my husband cannot be replaced and I have heard close to 30 people have died as a result of this P41 recall already. He will not be another one! my complaint is that when a customer is actually experiencing the issue, Chrysler is not offering anything to help us out until the part is available. I would expect that offering loaner Jeep or working with us to replace the Jeep would be much less expensive than a lawsuit if something happens to my husband. I am very concerned and frustrated at their lack of interest to help us out.

While driving approximately 40mph my check engine light started dinging and blinking. Within a few seconds of this the engine powered down ( RPM read 0). All the electrical components stayed on (radio, lights, ect) then within 10 seconds the engine started back up. When the vehicle restarted itself the esp showed being disabled and the RPM's where higher than normal. Any acceleration/deceleration the check engine light would ding and blink. This has happened multiple times since it first occurred. I have taken it to two mechanics to be serviced. The vehicle displayed random codes at both shops.
