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.

2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee Owner Comments

problem #4

Apr 122008

Grand Cherokee 4WD 6-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 991 miles


After driving about 40 miles on highway, then turning onto local streets, all warning lights on dashboard lit up, message board flashed "transmission overtemp" warning, then "check gauges" warning. The vehicle went into limp home mode, no gauges worked, including speedometer. Once shut off, vehicle took a while before it would start again. Had vehicle towed to dealer. Dealer could not replicate or diagnose problem. I believe this is related to the crankshaft positioning sensor problem that prompted a recent recall of this engine by Mercedes Benz (3L crd engine). Chrysler would not acknowledge this problem.

Grand Cherokee 4WD 6-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,000 miles
Engine stalled while driving, and then would not restart. Fortunately I was going slowly approaching a traffic light or the stall could have lead to a collision. My 11 month old son was with me, and then we were stuck blocking traffic at one of the busiest intersections in town. I have heard this is a problem with my vehicle, the 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee crd. We could have been killed had this happened on the highway.

I have previously filed complaints. Please recall the diesel Jeep too!! updated 10/08/0.

Grand Cherokee 6-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission

Vehicle stalled just as I was getting ready to pull out into traffic on 9/11/07 at about 3,300 miles. I could have been hit by oncoming traffic if it had stalled a few moments later. It stalled again 11/5/07 at about 10,000 miles after I pulled into a parking place at work.
