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 #2

Apr 102004


  • 23,000 miles


Brake pads went out after 23,000 miles. Brakes did not make sqeaking noise as indicator. Metal on metal sound was only indication. Damaged the rotors and was replaced. Other rotors was resurfaced. $350 to repair. Jeep will not include as warranty even though faulty parts used. This is not safe.

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
Rear brake axle seals have failed 3 times which soaked the brake pads each time. Dealer replaced seals and pads. Now the vehicle is shaking and pulsating especially in the steering wheel when braking from 60-40 mph. Please also note that the transmission failed and was replaced at 25,000 mi.
