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 have replaced the tail lights (4X within 12months), fog light (after one exploded and melted the housing), lights in visor (safety recall), day time running lights (6X), a sensor has quit working on the engine module that tells the engine when it is up to temperature, and the leather dash suddenly warped. My vehicle has 60,000 miles on it and already I have replaced various lights on it (the day time running lights need a trained mechanic) costing me a ton of money. The warped dash was inspected by the manager of rice Chrysler Dodge in knoxville, tn informed me that the glue allowed the dash to lift and that I would have to pay for this manufacture defect, and I just received a letter in the mail that another safety recall is being issued for the engine stalling that could cause a deadly accident. I think that my vehicle should be registered as a lemon, I have always trusted Jeep, always had Jeep, but this one has been a costly mistake.

There are now four separate recalls on this vehicle dating back to 2014 and Chrysler Jeep has refused to address any of these claiming they do not have the parts. My daughter, who is a full time student in pa, has been to several dealerships (brenner Chrysler Dodge Jeep, manahawkin Chrysler Dodge Jeep, 'blaise alexander Chrysler Dodge Jeep) and placed on a wait list however none of these have ever cleared for any of the recalls Chrysler Jeep has taken no responsibility to address these recalls in any manner and have inconvenienced a college student let alone put her at unnecessary safety risk. These recalls need to be fixed. She will be in NJ from may-August.

We received a recall for this Jeep last fall(2014). The number is P60/NHTSA 14V-634 labeled alternator. The recall states that the alternator diodes in our vehicle may experience a rapid failure. Variability in the failure mode ranges from no output, reduced output, and/or a fully shorted to ground condition. Depending on the alternator failure mode and timing, vehicle electrical system voltage may drop to critical levels, disabling systems such as antilock brake system(ABS), electronic stability control(ecs), electronic control module(ECM),and/or central body controller(cbc). The driver will have little or no detection of the alternator failing, which can result in vehicle shutdown while driving and/or an underhood electrical fire. We contacted our dealer twice in the last 5 months and both times were told they do not have the parts. By their own statement this could result in a critical and disabling situation. We should have this replaced today or given a safe vehicle to drive until ours is made safe. How long do they get to put off repairing this"???? why has Jeep not made these parts available" and if they have why are dealers not installing them. Our dealer is fox Chrysler Dodge Jeep in auburn, New York.
