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

Dec 142002

Liberty 4WD 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 61,000 miles


2002 Jeep Liberty spontaneously engaged in full acceleration. Vehicle reached 100 mph with no accelerator pedal influence or ability of brakes to decelerate. Put vehicle in neutral, rpms reached 7000 (maximum on tachometer) and I waited til vehicle reached 20 mph at which point I measured that I could safely shut off power and coast to a stop. Source of problem: Accelerator spring mechanism got stuck under nearby cable in full-throttle position.
