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

Liberty 6-cyl

  • 114,000 miles


The wheel lug bolts, all five, on the front right wheel have sheared off at the wheel hub. I have three of the lug bolts (for metallugical analysis) and pictures of the vehicle position at the time of failure. Apparently two of the other lug bolts had failed earlier and dropped from the vehicle. Had this final failure occurred at a higher rate of speed than 1 mph, the results would have been disastrous. I do not feel that a failure such as this is normal for ~114,000 miles on a 10 year old vehicle and suspect that it may be the result of substandard material. I have electronic pictures that I can submit.

Liberty 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
Vehicle was traveling at 60 mph when all of a sudden the driver felt vibration coming from the front of the vehicle. Driver was swaying to the right hand side to pull over when the front right wheel fell off. Vehicle was taken to shop for a checkup and results showed that the all of the nuts were loose, except the lug nut lock. Consumer was explained that the alloy wheel caused it to fall off if the tires were not tightened after new tires were purchased.
