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 2012 Grand Cherokee hasn’t seen the same complaint volume as the 2011, at least not yet.

It’s worth noting both model years are part of a class-action lawsuit that focuses on a defective TIPM and a long wait for replacement parts.

The 2012 also received national attention after it failed a Sweedish Magazine’s “moose test”. the test measures a vehicle’s ability to swerve out of the way of an obstacle you wouldn’t want to hit while driving down the road … like a moose.

There has been a recall from Chrysler regarding the brake booster freezing during cold weather. The recall is P-14/NHTSA 14V-154. We have been on a waiting list since May 2014 and the dealership has been unable to receive the parts to make the repairs. I have been in contact with Chrysler and they have been no help as to making a timely repair. I ask that you look into this issue as to why so many people are on waiting list awaiting parts.

While reversing from a driveway with an incline brakes were not responsive. I would like to file a formal complaint against Chrysler for not supplying the parts to dealerships/car owners for all recalls (P14, P36, impending alternator recall, etc). These recalls in my opinion are all extremely dangerous and endanger the general public along with the owner of these vehicles. P-36 vanity light catch fire, P-14 break failure, impending alternator - car loses power unexpectedly. I will also mention our warranty periods have been extended for 5 additional yrs and 50,000 miles due to possible left cylinder head failures. Shame on Chrysler for not supplying parts and making the dealerships the middle men who also dont help the customers and point back at you. Lives are at risk...supply the parts and rectify your poor quality control.

Went for recall work as soon as I received notice from Chrysler. Have been waiting over 3 months for parts and dealer does not know when parts will be available. I called Chrysler to complain and there only response was, "call your dealer". what good is it to recall vehicles and then not repair them?

I am not sure if this is the correct place to complain. But I received a recall for my brake booster ( which I am not sure what it is, but anything to do with brakes has to be important) months ago. I reach out to the dealership saying I receive the letter in the mail about my brakes and I need this fixed and they said well they only send us one part at a time. So when we fix one we have to send the old one in and wait for a new one so we will put you on the list to get the part. So I called back a month later to find out that the recall part has been recalled which is ridiculous. So here I am the end of September still trying to get by brake booster fixed, not knowing if my brakes will fail or not. I shouldn't have to wait to get into an accident for something to be done. My car isn't a cheap car I have paid good money for this and if something isn't safe there it should be fixed and I shouldn't have to worry about it. Can you please help me if you can not can you lead me in the right direction. Thank you in advance

My 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee experienced brake difficulties during the winter 2013/2014 twice. I blamed it on the extreme cold we were experiencing at the time. Shortly thereafter, the brake recall notice was issued to the media. I immediately called my local Chrysler/Jeep dealer to inquire about the recall. I was informed that they had not been given notice to make appointments for the repairs. Approx 1 month later the official recall notice was received by mail. I again called the dealer who told me I was #12 on their repair list. He also noted that the parts were being sent "a couple at a time" and that it could be a while. Months later, I have called for an update and am still #5 on the waiting list. I let them know that I truly had experienced the failure and was concerned about winter weather coming soon. They said that they would get to me as soon as possible. I am very disappointed in the response to our concerns...especially having experienced the failure.
