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

Aug 132007

Grand Cherokee

  • 17,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee. While driving 50 mph and depressing the brake pedal to stop, the vehicle would abnormally lunge forward. In addition, while driving highway speeds, the vehicle would sporadically fail. The contact took the vehicle to a dealer and they repaired the tcm. Several weeks later, the failure recurred without any warning. She called the manufacturer and was referred back to the dealer. The dealer stated that if the diagnostic machine did not provide any codes, they could not successfully remedy the failure. The failure mileage was 17,000 and current mileage was 25,000.

Transmission will sporadically choose not to engage allowing the vehicle to free wheel. Problem noted mainly after initial start when left overnight and will go away after allowing the vehicle to warm up sufficiently (3-5 minutes).
