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.

I am filing this now for July 09 due to the same issue that happened yesterday, 4-7-10.. this is not a safe vehicle and Jeep needs to fix this problem. It is unsafe when a vehicle gives no warning and completely shuts off on an interstate. Also, please see my safety complaint ODI # 10324403 for the 4-7-10 incident. In July 09, after going through a toll at exit 67 barneget toll, garden state parkway, NJ, I accelerated to the merge point and vehicle shut down and engine stalled and lost power. Several attempts to restart didn't work. Seems like it shut down electrically and was not getting gas adequately. Seems to lack adequate power. Attempt to start several times with no luck, engine wouldn't stay running, long start-up inconsistent, dash lights did come on to inform of no power. Let sit to cool down vehicle and was able to start and move to a more safer location. This was the first occurrence and the temperature outside was 90 F and sunny. This occurred at 15000 miles in July 09. Vehicle went to 3 service visits and dealers could not repeat.
