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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: The fourth generation Grand Cherokee took the relatively trouble-free run of the 3rd-generation and flipped the script.

From 2010 to 2011, complaints about the vehicle not starting increased 10-fold. In fact, the 2011 model year is riddled with engine problems and a defective TIPM might be to blame. The TIPM (Totally Integrated Power Module) distributes power to all the eletrical components in the vehicle, so when it starts acting funny so do numerous other components in the car. Orders for new TIPMs were so abundant that parts became scarce, prompting a class-action lawsuit claiming Chrysler ignored this obvious defect.

By 2012 complaints dropped back down by about 80%. Needless to say, if you see a used 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee on a lot just keep walking.

I have a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, and was experiencing the same cold start issues I drove it for about another 2 weeks and on one trip I drove about an hour out of town and had to run into a bank. When I got back in my car I started it and died right in the middle of the driveway I was exiting. Took 30 minutes for it to restart. The paperwork says they replaced the win (wireless ignition node). 11 days in the shop. The next morning I went out to go to work and the car would not start. Called dealership told me to bring it back up. I did the next day, this time getting a Dodge dart from the rental company 8 days in the shop when I received a call that it was ready, this time they replaced the ignition module and gave me a new remote key. The next day Aug 8th went to go to work and the car wouldn't start. Half hour later got the car started and back to dealership, this time I received a Nissan versa rental. They have had it ever since 14 days and counting. I talk to service department on Thursday August 15th. And they told me they got it not to start and that it was the fuel injectors, I interjected and told him about this forum and to check the tipm and they just released 2000 from the factory on the 13th. Said he would speak with technician and get back to me. Called me Friday and said they were replacing the tipm and he would have a better idea on a time frame by the middle of this week. I called today and they are telling me that its back ordered to Sept. Not giving me any specifics of when in Sept. The service manager gave me Chrysler number to call and complain.this is a serious issue with many individuals effected it needs to be looked into as a recall issue. What happens if the company in Mexico who makes the part goes out of business. This is wrong especially for a taxpayers bailout company..
