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. 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 6-cyl

  • 2,200 miles


After taking my new Jeep into dealer because the "check engine" light came on, I was told that there were 16 stored codes but they could find no problem and the computer was reset. Two days later the check engine light again came on. I took back to the dealership and was told "there is a leak in the fuel tube" we have to replace it but we will have to order the part; we don't have it in stock. I was told "it is safe to drive"...a leak in the fuel tube-what the heck is leaking-is safe. Ok, but two trips to the dealer with less than 2,500 miles is a bit much. I have a 2006 Jeep, same make/model that had 1st major repair (water pump) at 145,000 much for improved models. I am very concerned that this is a harbinger of future issues.

The contact owns a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The contact stated that the manual for the vehicle stated that the engine should shut off when the key fob was removed from the vehicle. The contact parked the vehicle in a residential garage overnight and the following day, he found that the vehicle was still powered on. The vehicle was taken to the dealer because the failure caused the catalytic converter and fuel pump to fail. The engine became extremely hot and remained on even after there was no more fuel in the vehicle. The contact spoke with the manufacturer and was told that they would not assist due to user error. The vehicle was not repaired. The VIN was not available. The failure and the current mileage was 1,093.

Grand Cherokee

  • 810 miles
The vehicle stalled for no reason. It took multiple attempts (approx 10 times) to restart the vehicle. It would start and I could drive 40-50 yards and would stall again. Multiple lights came on such as vehicle in gear (it wasn't), etc. Once it did restart and I was able to drive to the dealer the check engine light stayed on. The vehicle has done this twice now without cause (I have only had the vehicle for 4 weeks). The Jeep dealership kept the vehicle for a couple days. They were finally able to reset the codes and did a software update. I found out a crank sensor had been replaced before I purchased the vehicle.they said they could not guaranty it would not happen again and to check back in the near future as additional software updates may become available.
