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.

Grand Cherokee

  • 13,000 miles


2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited model- driver's side heated power mirror exploded while driving. I was driving on 1/30/10 in rye brook, NY and temperatures were approximately 15 degrees Fahrenheit. As I was driving the driver's side mirror literally exploded. The roads were clear and free of debris and I swerved off the road as I thought someone had thrown a rock or a ball at my window. I quickly got out of the car and noticed a gaping hole through the mirror but no other damage to any other part of the vehicle. No scratches were on the mirror or the car but there was a greenliquid from inside the mirror loosely scattered in small spots on the driver's side. It was the same green liquid present in greater amounts within the mirror. It was clear the mirror malfunctioned and imploded. I contacted the dealership where I got the vehicle and Chrysler corporate headquartered and they said such a defect would not be covered. There could have been a serious injury as I ran off the road I heard the bang and mirror exploded. I then contacted my local body shop and the owner confirmed he has seen faulty wiring and exploding mirrors for power heated mirrors.
