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

  • 151,000 miles


Propeller shaft bearing was exposed causing grinding/rattling noise and possible failure. While driving I heard a loud click and rattling noise. I took the car to the mechanic and he said that he could see the bearing exposed for the propeller shaft and that it needed replacement.

Liberty 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles
Vehicle vibrates loudly from front driveline between 40 and 50 mph and over 70 mph, concerned this is a severe, unsafe, and common problem because of many other complaints of the same definition from other Liberty owners.

Liberty 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
As with many others on this site, I have been having drive line vibrations at around 45-55 mph; also, pulling to the right (after 3 alignments!) which cause tires to wear prematurely. Jeep really should fix this stuff for all of us!
