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 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 29,900 miles
: the contact stated the illumination of the instrument panel flickered and failed on three separate occasions. The service brake warning light illuminated each time. On two of those occasions, the brake pedal went mushy, but began operating after the brake pedal was pumped several times. The headlights failed to illuminate on the last occasion while traveling 45 mph. The vehicle was returned to the service dealer three different times for service, but the problems continued. The manufacturer sent an engineer to inspect the vehicle.
