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.

Went to three different places and everyone have a different view of what was wrong. Replaced coil, battery, fuel filter, had tune-up then after all this, I was told it was the throttle body sensor. The car still does not work. Finally had it towed to a friend at a jeep dealership. They said it was a cam sensor that was causing the car to stall when started. so far I have spent more than $1000 trying to fix this jeep and it still stalls out and when I try to start it. Are there any mechanics out there that know what they are doing.

Ok...Part III

So my husband picks the Jeep up on Tuesday and comes to pick me up at work. Only the Jeep doesn't make it....it stalled out about 4 miles into the trip. Now I've run out of rental car days under my extended warranty and I'm stuck 45 minutes from home. I called the dealer from whom I had purchased the Jeep. They were generous enough to send a tow truck and provide me with a loaner car while it was repaired. This time around it took until November 16th to get the car back (the dealer said that he called on the 13th, but I never got a message. I called on Thursday to find out where things stood when he advised that it had been done since Tuesday). This time around they replaced another coil pack (this is the 3rd), the throttle position sensor and the cam sensor. I picked the car up on Friday. It still didn't quite feel right but they said it was fixed.....

Part IV coming soon.....

Ok, Part II.....

After having the car to a dealer and my private mechanic it still isn't running quite right. Bob (my regular mechanic) calls in a favor from a friend at the Jeep dealer up the road. That dealer found a bad fuel injector, which was promptly replaced. The dealer dubbed the Jeep fixed on Tuesday October 30th.

Driving down the road on a rainy Tuesday evening about 30 MPH when my tachometer starts jumping around and the Jeep stalls, in traffic. I called the warranty roadside assistance number and they sent a tow truck. After about fifteen minutes I was able to restart it and get it moved off the road and into a parking lot. My husband came to pick me up and the tow truck to the Jeep.....to the wrong dealer! The next day I called the dealer where I thought the car was to find out that it wasn't there. Next, I spent about 45 minutes on the cell phone (during peak hours!!) attempting to locate the car. Around 12:30, I spoke to the service manager (at the wrong dealer) who assured me that he would get it looked at as soon as possible. On Thursday, about noon or so, the service manager called to let me know that I needed about $1100 of work on the car, but thank goodness I had the extended warranty...it would cover the new alternator and crank sensor, but I would also need two coil packs, a new battery, new plugs and wires, and a thorough cleaning of the fuel injectors. He went on to say that this was all a result of my battery leaking acid and I would need to replace that as well. I let them do the warranty work (alternator & crank sensor ~ $50 deductible + tax) and had AAA tow it to my regular mechanic for the remainder of the work.

The first thing my regular mechanic did was check the battery & charging system, which appeared to be operating correctly. They then replaced the coil packs and the wires & plugs ($80 + labor). It was still not running properly.

This isn't the end of the story, but it's the end of this "complaint"
