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

Apr 202010

Liberty Limited 4wd 3.7L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 56,000 miles


Driver seat belt buckle broken, can't open it. The dealership wants $200 for the buckle arm replacement! I'm sorry, but when I couldn't get out of my car because of poor manufacturing or design, Jeep should replace it for free and apologize for the inconvenience. Seems like this problem is fairly common, but when I wrote to Jeep, they told me the dealership would have to diagnose the problem. Now they're recalling my car to fix an air bag problem, but my temporary fix means no hookup to the bag on my side. I don't know how many complaints they have to get to consider this buckle problem a safety issue. Then the dealer had the nerve to suggest an auto wrecking place for the part!!
