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.

Received 2nd notice of recall for sun visor wiring -P36/NHTSA 14V-391 contacted the Jeep dealership 3 times and each time they stated I'm on "the list" to be called when the parts come in. According to my last conversation with them, they stated "there is no list"! why am I getting two different stories and why am I wasting my time? dealership does not know how to treat their customers or are not correctly informed as to the guidelines of how to process recalls. I'm beginning to rethink my next purchase!

The entire stereo screen all of the sudden "blacked out" not allowing any controls to work. Every 20 seconds the blacked out screen goes blue with a message to "please insert update usb". the bill luke dealership states that this is not covered under the warranty and no recalls on this. However, states this problem is common requiring the entire head/stereo unit to be replaced. Recall #P6/NHTSA 14V-634 states that depending on the alternator failure mode and timing that the ESC (electronic stability control) or ECM (electronic control module) can be disabled. Even though there are not other issues with this Jeep at this time, who is to say that this recall is not affecting the stereo/head unit? it is a possibility. I should not have to pay to replace a stereo/head unit in a new 2014 vehicle that stopped working by a defect that is no fault of mine.

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.
