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.

Grand Cherokee 4WD 6-cyl

  • 1,600 miles
2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee 65th anniversary edition: 15 days off the lot when while driving 15-20 mph engine completely died. I could not steer to the side of the road. There were no warning lights or any indication of a problem. Dealership diagnosed "major internal engine failure" and replaced with new engine. About 4 months later rattling sound turned out to be catalytic converter that needs to be replaced. Still waiting for the part. SUV still does not drive 100%. sometimes when I step on the gas the truck does not respond right away.
