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.

Grand Cherokee 6-cyl

  • 55,000 miles
All four interior door panels have cracked and broken where it attaches to the door. Consequently, the door handles become inoperable because they are attached to the panel where the cracking occurs. This is a safety issue as both driver and passengers are unable to exit quickly in the event of an emergency and might not even be able to exit at all. Chrysler offers no assistance for this known issue, which appears to occur frequently with this model year.

July 26th 2010 is when I first purchased my 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee and my back two doors were inoperable. No one could get out of the doors from the inside out. I drove around for a whole year before I got it replaced. The operation homefront replaced my rear doors for me with nothing coming out of my pockets. If it wasn't for ohf I would've came out of my pocket $1200 to fix just the rear doors. I needed them fixed because I have a child and that is a safety hazard if my child cannot get out of the vehicle. Jeep said there was not a recall on the door panels for this vehicle. Right now my driver side door panel is failing and I do not have the money to fix the door because it is so expensive to fix. Jeep needs to do a recall or someone is going to get hurt. My handle is separating form the door and soon I will not be able to get out of my driver side door.

Interior door handles are cracking and crumbling on the car. The only repair the dealer has is to replace the door panels for $800 each. I contacted Chrysler group llc customer assistance ([xxx]), they refuse to do anything about it.they will not acknowledge there is a problem with the door handles. They will only say that my car is to old, has no warranty so therefore they cannot assist me with this repair.

Grand Cherokee 4WD 8-cyl

  • 70,000 miles
The interior door handle on the drivers side front started to get hair line cracks in it. It is cracking more and more with use. At some point the handle will come apart and I will not be able to get out of my car. I asked the dealer about a repair and they want $800 to replace the whole door panel. It appears this will happen with the other doors as well. There are after market repair kits, but after researching and finding that this is a chronic problem with the handles, I believe Jeep should replace or repair them for free.

Grand Cherokee

  • 70,000 miles
All four interior door handles and attaching mounts on my Jeep Grand Cherokee are now cracked are now not usable to exit the vehicle, numerous complaints to delmar Chrysler go unheard and unanswered, and the company offers no solution or recall to this obvious defect in the manufacture of this vehicle. The plastic used to mount the door handles is brittle and will crack beyond repair, making it impossible to open the door from the inside, this is a major safety issue. The vehicle cannot be exited by passenger in the event of a crash or emergency. I suppose someone will die in a crashed, burning, or sinking vehicle before Chrysler will step up and recall this important safety issue.

Grand Cherokee

  • miles
After buying a pre-owned 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited (59K miles) a few days ago, I noticed that one of the backseat interior door handles is broken. There is no apparent break from what you can see, but some plastic must have cracked inside of the door itself. I've read that this is a common problem in 05-07 Jeep Grand Cherokee and there is no recall. It seems that, although it is only the one interior door handle now, eventually all four will break. This is a safety issue because it prevents passengers from exiting the vehicle without help from outside of the car. The fix is quoted at $400/door, making it somewhat unreasonable, especially for a crucial and simple function of the car.

I have a 2006 Jeep Cherokee Laredo and 3 out of 4 interior door handles are completely broken. I even have an extended warranty that is supposed to cover everything but was told by the dealership that "trim" is not covered. How are interior door handles considered trim? I was told that the entire door panel would have to be replaced at $400 each. This is not a cosmetic issue but a safety issue. The doors will not open from the inside. I am very afraid of getting into a car crash and my children not being able to exit the vehicle. I have read many, many stories of the exact same problem with these door handles. There should be a recall by DaimlerChrysler.
