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 2014 (and 2015) Jeep Grand Cherokee shows an early trend of transmission complaints. Most of the complaints are for rough shifting — things like jerking & hesitation when shifting gears.

We are keeping an eye on things but the 2014 Grand Cherokee doesn't look like a good model year compared to past years.

  • 15,000 miles
Since purchasing this vehicle in April of 2013 there have been six safety related recalls on the vehicle. The first two were quickly fixed. Since then, and over the last year we had accumulated an additional four recalls. Each comes with a warning from Chrysler that this is an "important safety recall notice." The recalls are as follows; sun visor wiring occupant restraint control module brake booster alternator we have made at least four trips into auto nation Chrysler Dodge Jeep in at 120 116th ave ne bellevue, wa 98004 to try and get these items fixed. Each time we are told the parts are not available and they have no estimate as to when the parts may be available. They have been pretty dismissive and do not seem to give the impression that they understand this is their responsibility to correct.

I was driving and stopped at the stop sign and when I accelerated after making the stop and took a left turn on G street located on kirtland air force base my car accelerated and I lost control and when I applied the brakes nothing happened and my car proceeded to hit a parked vehicle and still the brakes did not stop the car and the only reason the car stopped was because I hit some reinforced steel cables holding something up. Four other vehicles were damages as a result of my brakes failing.

Grand Cherokee 4WD 6-cyl

  • 41,000 miles
While traveling perfectly fine for 2 hours on an expressway, our vehicle became completely uncontrollable as the road became slightly slippery and we decreased our speed to around 45 mph. The steering wheel began shaking, the vehicle felt like it was driving itself, shimmying left and right uncontrollably. We could not correct the vehicle from slightly fishtailing even after removing pressure from accelerator and reducing speed to 5-10 mph and driving on the shoulder where there was more traction. We were totally unable to control the vehicle. We switched the select-terrain knob to "snow" to see if that helped, but it continued to be virtually uncontrollable. We were afraid to completely stop the vehicle due to all other traffic flying past us going normal speeds. The vehicle miraculously made it to a gas station right off the highway and was towed to the nearest Jeep dealer. The service department took it out for two different drives and could not replicate the problem. They hooked it up to their computer diagnostic system and could find no error codes. We also inquired if it was part of the P64 recall regarding the electronic control stability and were told no even though it seems similar to the problem that the recall addresses.this was the most terrifying experience we have ever had in a vehicle. If there had been any vehicles in our immediate vicinity at the onset of the issue, we would have been in a horrific accident. Two other similar, but less intense scenarios had happened before this one, both including the same feeling of being out of control, once on a rainy road service, and the other on an intermittently slippery road. Because this seems to be an intermittent problem and one that is a huge safety concern, we refuse to drive this vehicle on the road again.

My lights outside/inside go black/no lights with no warning. Other cars flash their lights at me and all I can do is turn on overhead light, and drive very slow. Also my brakes won't work, this happened three times. I'm scared to drive at any time after dark. My car was in shop for 37 days because they could not get parts to fix/after accident.
