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.

On October 15, 2014 I took my 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee to moore auto group 8590 West bell road peoria, AZ to address recall (P36 sun visor wiring). The recall states; the sun visor vanity lamp wiring on your vehicle may experience a high resistance short after a service repair to the sun visor, headliner or while gaining access above the headliner. This may result in an inoperative vanity lamp and increase risk of fire. On February 4, 2015 while parked, engine not running, locked and unoccupied, in a grocery store parking lot, the car erupted in flames. The source of ignition was a short in the wiring above the headliner at the passenger side sun visor. I believe that in the interest of safety, any and all owners of vehicles that had this recall maintenance performed at moore auto group be advised to return for reinspection.

My car continued to make a sound as though the engine was still running when I turned the ignition off. I think this could be something to do with the recall on the alternator diodes. It seems the alternator may be failing. The power when the gas pedal is applied hesitates at times also when driving. My fear is that I will be driving at a high rate of speed on the highway and the car will loose all power completely. This will leave me without any steering control at all too. I fear for my life at this time. I was told by [xxx] that I should replace it at my cost. When I asked how much that would cost the service advisor [xxx] lied and said he did not know the cost to replace the parts. Also, if there are parts now then the alternator/diodes should be being replaced by Chrysler now before a severe catastrophe occurs. I also had the brake booster replaced. Since then there is a rattle under the hood on the drivers side where the brake booster would be. Every time I go over a bump in the road a rattling sound happens. It is as though this is something to do with the suspension of the car or alignment too. [xxx], service advisor at [xxx] has not been able to identify this problem. [xxx] wants me to come in for yet another day to try to get the problem identified. This will make 3 days of losing time from work and being inconvenienced. I have been to this dealer on 2 occasions and have gotten no satisfaction or resolve at all. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
