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.

Driver-side and passenger-side interior door handles both (at different times) just broke for no reason and started crumbling in pieces. It started about a year ago. I asked about it at our dealership. They informed me there were no recalls or anything. I looked it up online and saw that there have been many Jeep Cherokee having this same issue and no one understands why there has been no recall on this common problem. My handles have gotten so bad that I am afraid of the safety issue for my family and I now. Of course the vehicle was stationary, as we were trying to get out of the vehicle when both of the handles did this.

Grand Cherokee

  • 65,300 miles
Driving 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee on highway at 65 mph. Right front tire instantly went flat preceeded by a low tire pressure indicator. Auto club installed spare and noted that the tire valve (tire pressure monitor wheel sensor) was gone. Tire dealer checked tire (now damaged beyond repair) and found the pressure sensor fell into the wheel because the threaded nut that holds the sensor in place failed and separated from the wheel while driving. Inspection of sensor assembly showed clear evidence of severe corrosion to the threads which allowed retaining nut to separate at highway speeds. Inspection by tire dealer of all other wheels showed similar condition. Vehicle is regularly maintained by Jeep dealer shops, driven primarily in NY state. This issue is worse than driving on low pressure tires as it occurs catastrophically. The tire pressure monitor sensor on the vehicle is 100% oem (no dissimilar metals in use). Cannot believe there is no indication from manufacturer of this defect or suggested preventative actions.
