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.

Vehicle has been to dealership four times for the same problem. After driving longer than 10-15 minutes turning the Jeep off and trying to restart within 5-10 minutes it won't start. Let it sit for minimum of 20 minutes will start. The relays get very warm but after cooling, the car starts. Dealership has zinged us for a new starter, it didn't need, a new PCM, it didn't need. Testing my own theory 3 consecutive times in one day, drove the vehicle at least 30 minutes. Turned off and attempted to restart (as you would a quick trip to the store) and nothing but waiting each time, car starts after cooling. Picked up the Jeep two days ago from dealership who had it 18 days trying to fix it (3rd time)and the first trip that day resulted in another occurrence of the same problem.

On several occasions, while coming to a stop the engine shut itself off for no reason. It then repeatedly tried to restart itself, even with the key in the "off" position. When this happens power steering is lost causing hard steering. The dealer performed the ignition switch recall claiming that would resolve the problem. This problem continued after the recall repair was performed.

For over a year now, I have been receiving notices about a Jeep safety recall and I have called several different states seeking the ignition switch and no one has it. I have recently experiences two separate driving occasions where I've completely lost engine power and power steering assist; it's really scaring me and I don't feel safe in the vehicle, especially with two small children in tow as this is my family car. The consumer referenced recall # 14V438000. Updated 03/10/16.

Grand Cherokee

  • 80,000 miles
Vehicle will stall while idling or decelerating. Jeep must be put into park or neutral and ignition completely turned off and back on for car engine to turn over. Vehicle also has stalled while driving at approximately 35 mph, also needing to be restarted to resume function. The engine light will remain on half of the time once the vehicle has stalled and been restarted. The vehicle stalls anywhere from once to a dozen times a day while driving and it occurs more in the cold weather. This vehicle has been taken to the dealership twice regarding the issue, and has different codes with each visit for things that need to be repaired. This vehicle is a large safety hazard.

Vehicle displays esp (electronic stability program), bas (brake assist system), ABS (antilock braking system) lights in cluster, as well as service 4WD system. While these lights are active, vehicle becomes unsafe and brakes while cornering under acceleration (without touching the brakes!) and has resulted in loss of control. Issue has been repeatedly reported to dealerships and manufacturer (10 visits for this issue spread across 2 dealerships, and 4 cases have been opened with Jeep directly). Issue continues to be diagnosed as a failed brake light switch, and switch is replaced. New switch works for 3-6 weeks before failing again, rendering vehicle unsafe. One example of this issue resulting in the vehicle loosing traction occured in November 2015 while going on a circular highway entrance ramp with the warning lights illuminated. Half way thru the turn, while gently accelerating, the rear brakes completely locked up causing the vehicle to skid onto the muddy shoulder. In January of 2016 a similar incident occured while going up a snowy hill (road curves while going uphill) resulting in the vehicle loosing traction and going into a snowbank.

Grand Cherokee

  • 70,000 miles
While driving or parked with engine running all dash warning lights flash on and off any interior lights that are on turn off, radio turns off and heater/ac and fan turn off for a couple seconds then turn back on. Usually the check engine light will then stay on for a few more cycles. Engine, power steering and brakes and head lights all continue to work throughout the cycle. This will happen numerous times in one day or go for a month without doing it at all.
