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.

Grand Cherokee 8-cyl

  • 7,000 miles
The vehicle randomly activates the forward collision avoidance system. Sometimes it engages the brakes, sometimes it just flashes the brake warning on the dashboard. We have had several close calls where we were almost rear ended due to the sudden unexpected hard application of the brakes. At no time during these events were there any obstacles, vehicles or other objects anywhere near the front of the car!!! I am not sure if the system is still functioning if it is actually needed. Jeep for their part has been completely unhelpful, it has taken over a month to get the part after several attempts to diagnose the problem unsuccessfully. They refused to even give me a rental car until the other day, saying it wasn't really a big deal nor undriveable.
