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.

Checking the tire pressure in a customer's vehicle resulted in two broken valve stems due to deterioration of the TPMS sensor.

I currently drive a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, and I have been having trouble with the TPMS tire valve stem spontaneously breaking causing rapid deflation. So far two have broken, but fortunately the car was not moving on both occasions. It appears the valves broke due to corrosion. My concern is that this may occur at a high rate of speed, causing a loss of control.

I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee with TPMS sensors installed. Apparently, metal caps were installed on the valve stems that oxidated together making their removal impossible without twisting off the valve stem, flattening the tire. I can't even get a replacement TPMS valve replacement from Jeep (mopar) because they are on backorder (due to high demand because of problems like this). This creates an unsafe driving situation--I can't check my tire pressure because the cap is frozen on to the stem--if I try to remove it, the stem will break, and there is no supply of TPMS replacement parts. These should have never been on the market installed this way-they should have had rubber/plastic caps installed.

  • 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.
