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.

2002 Jeep Liberty Owner Comments

I have a 2002 Jeep Liberty. There are two cylinders under the hood that are supposed to keep the hood open after it is raised. Mine no longer do that. This could present a serious problem as the hood could slam down unto anyone that might be looking under the hood. I luckily avoided getting injured this morning as I was looking under the hood, turned around for a second, and the hood slammed shut, narrowly missing me. There is a similar situation with the back window. Although not as serious, the cylinders on the window are failing as well.

Liberty 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles
: the contact stated while driving 35 mph on a city street, the engine stalled, and all four doors locked and unlocked without warning. Afterwards, the engine restarted. The vehicle was inspected by an independent repair shop who determined the wheel and speed sensor of the brakes needed to be replaced. Afterward, the problems persisted. The vehicle was taken to a dealer for further inspection who determined there was a rainwater leak along the driver side door and the rear hatch that corroded the electrical wiring harness. The wiring harness was replaced as well as a new rear hatch seal to prevent further leaking. The manufacturer was alerted.
