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.

2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Owner Comments

problem #2

Mar 122007

Grand Cherokee 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 23,200 miles


I read about the recall on the 2007 Wrangler and nitros. It sounded like the same problem. I had loss of engine power several times, similar to running out of gasoline. Most times it would not stall, but if at slow speeds or at a stop the engine would completely quit. One turn of the key would start it up again. Now that I saw similar symptoms being recalled for another Jeep I wanted to file a formal notice of the problem before I or another person ended up stalling at a traffic light and getting hurt. Please note that the incident date below is when I first had a full stall.
