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

problem #3

Mar 012007

Liberty 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,226 miles


When it's cold and either snowy or icy at any speed "5 mph -- 35 mph my Jeep Liberty fails to stop for a very long distance. At 5 mph it takes well over 30-40 feet. The ABS make noise like they are trying to do something. But its as if they never actually engage to stop the vehicle. I have had to use a snowy bank several times so I wouldn't roll straight into an intersection. This vehicle has done this since I have had it. I have taken it in numerous times and told nothing is wrong. My father drove this same vehicle and had the same thing happen to him. I am not the only one complaining about this issue. For safety reasons I leave my Liberty in the garage on snowy days and take my Ford truck out instead. I do not have this issue with my truck.

: the contact stated the ABS and brake lights intermittently illuminated. When the brake pedal was depressed it pulsated. The vehicle was taken to an independent repair shop. Upon examination, the repairs shop discovered the wheel speed sensor was rubbing against the emergency brake cable which caused the lights to illuminate and the pedal to pulsate.
