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.

Incident happened multiple times. Engine, shut down briefly. When I stepped on brake it vibrated severely. The instrument panel lit up, was unable to steer. Received notice from NHTSA tried to have fixed several timesand part is still unavailable. It is happening more often and I am afraid to drive it. Very disappointed. I believe Jeep should furnish me with a safe vehicle.

Driving down a mountain grade, at 65 miles per hour, all power shut off including all dash lights, speedometer, power steering and brakes. Over the next 20 miles all of these systems flashed on and off about a dozen times or more. This erratic electric behavior continued on a daily basis until I took it into the dealership. The dealer was able to recreate the problem when they jiggled the ignition switch. I do not use a keychain, only the key, so I assume the problem was caused when I drove over bumps in the road. For $1,300, the dealer was able to fix the problem.

Grand Cherokee 4WD 8-cyl

  • 108,000 miles
On my way home from work after dark, I experienced a loss of head lights, dash power and heating traveling at a high rate of speed down the interstate. Earlier that morning on my way to work, the dash quit working 4 times. All gauges stop working and drop to zero and the heat/ac quits. I have experienced my head lights turning off/losing power on 3 separate occasions. I am able to switch them from automatic to on and they work. Once my dash "flickers" and returns to normal, the engine light, traction light and esp bas light stay on. This has become a daily malfunction that occurs on my way to and from work. The first time this occurred in September of 2014, I drove straight to auto zone and bought a brand new battery. They tested the battery and said I needed a new one. They installed a new battery and connected power to the Jeep while they changed it. I figured a bad battery was the issue and it was now fixed. A couple days later, I began experiencing a loss power to my dash again. I have taken my Jeep to 3 different Jeep dealerships and they cannot find anything wrong but an ignition switch or bad battery. They all told me that they had not received the ignition switch part for the recall but I will received a notice in the mail when they do. One Jeep dealership contacted auto zone and told them the only thing they could find wrong with it was the battery. I went back to auto zone and they replaced my battery. I have had my alternator checked several times and it tested good. This defect/malfunction is dangerous and a hazard to my life as well as other motorist. I am very dissatisfied with Jeep's handling of the situation and long await period of the recall part.

Grand Cherokee 4WD 8-cyl

  • 109,200 miles
Was driving vehicle when my warning lights came on and I lost power to the vehicle including power steering and power brakes. I pulled the vehicle over, turned the ignition off and started the vehicle again. Proceeded to drive the car and once again lost power however when I touched the key or gave it gas it restarted. When I got home, I once again had the warning lights come on as if I was in auxiliary power and lost power to the Jeep. This was a very dangerous situation that could have caused an accident had I been on either road during rush hour.
