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.

Prior to the incident, my Jeep felt as if it were having trouble switching between gears. It felt jerky, if you will. While traveling along I-95 on the East coast of Florida, my Jeep (twice) slipped gear and appeared to have gone into neutral. If you know the area, it's not the ideal place for this to happen. Since returning to the West coast of Florida, it has happened once. I've taken to a shop for a tune-up and to check on that problem. Needless to say, the 'fix' did not fix it and I'm still experiencing jerky shifts and gear failure. I've read a number of similar complaints regarding the same type of incidents on the NHTSA website, but have not located a fix for the problem. Without hesitation, I'll say I'm terrified.

This was in dealing with a safety P41 recall of ignition switch problems 11/2014. My Jeep's ignition switch was faulty and would not turn on. I was without a car for a week before I had to take it to the dealership for them to fix. They fixed the ignition switch and I paid out of pocket. I sent my receipts and information along with the recall information and still have not been reimbursed.
