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.

2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee Owner Comments

problem #2

Mar 122015

Grand Cherokee 4WD 6-cyl

  • 77,723 miles


Vehicle shut off while driving, key was in the on position suddenly shutoff causing no power steering, power brakes, instrument panel and gauges went to zero. Was able to restart after a few minutes. Drove home, went to start vehicle 1 hour later and nothing happened. This has happened before and is similar to several other complaints for this make and year. Chrysler has no recall or fix for this problem and is not willing to recognize it as a serious safety issue. Someone will be killed because of this or already has, dead people do not complain.

problem #1

Jul 212013

Grand Cherokee 8-cyl

  • 90,000 miles
While attempting to park vehicle, with only brake being applied, and motor allowed to idle, vehicle accelerated. All attempts to stop vehicle by hard application of foot brake failed, and vehicle collided with a building. Subsequent investgation by insurance adjuster determined the vehicle was fast idling, possibly a tps issue. Despite many complaints to various Jeep authorized servicers, none ever disclosed a problem with this issue. Since new, the vehicle transmission has always had a tendency to grab when approaching a steep incline at idling speed, with sudden acceleration if gas pedal is gently depressed.
