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 #1

Aug 132003

Liberty 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 35,000 miles


Speed sensor wire at rear differential was chafed due to close proximity to brake line to left rear wheel. The braek line contacts at the base of the conenctor where not plastic armor protects the wire. Conductors are exposed and ground on the the brake line, causing speedometer to give erratic or no readings. Most evident with passengers or a load in the rear, caousing the wire to contact the brake line. Erractice speed data also effects automatic transmission shifting, causing sharp and abbrupt shifts to lower gears at speed.
