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

Grand Cherokee 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee that I've owned 2 years and have put 28,000 miles on it and my battery is dead. Not realizing what a pain it would be to get a new battery I thought oh well. Well upon contacting every auto place and multiple dealerships within a 25 mile radius I found out that no one carries this mopar/chrsyler battery. It has to be special ordered and to top it off it goes for between 120-150 and this is the only choice for this SUV. Per the dealerships the battery does come with a 72 month warranty at least. So I call Chrysler to see if they will prorate the battery being I've only the Jeep 2 years and it's only 3 years old. Well of course they say no. When you purchase one of their cars the battery is only warranted for 36 months or 36,000 miles but if I go buy the exact same battery now they will warranty it for 72 months. To me this does not sound accurate but they refuse to help in anyway. They said there is absolutely nothing they can do. I am not asking for something for free but I believe the battery should be prorated.

problem #1

Jun 132006

Grand Cherokee 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 11,356 miles
: the contact stated while changing the gear from drive to reverse there was a clicking noise. This occurred intermittently. While attempting to apply pressure to the accelerator pedal the engine made a roaring noise and the vehicle failed to pick up speed. The dealership rebuilt the transmission, however no other repairs have been made. The manufacturer has been alerted. Updated 6/27/2006 - the vehicle battery would not hold a charge. The headliner had to be replaced because it was unraveling.. the sunroof motor had to be replaced. The transmission was rebuilt on 2-27-06 with on 90000 miles. The memory seat did not move back at times when the key was removed from the ignition. The tire pressure monitoring system was inoperative. The power steering pump was binding and had to be replaced. The air bag light illuminated on the dash. The rear windshield wipers were not flush with the windshield.
