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

  • 94,002 miles
Has been happening off and on since purchasing car used about 2 years ago. Driving down the road, usually bumpy road, car turns off- dead. Have had it fixed twice before. Found to be key and ignition switch (April 2013) now doing it again. Dealership reported to me similar problem with a Dodge Caravan. Report they cannot figure out what is wrong with it since it is intermittent problem. Will do this at various speeds. Very random.
