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.

2003 Jeep Liberty Owner Comments

I have had numerous problems with this Jeep. Always detected a rotten egg smell dealer claimed it was the gas. After 1 year of ownership driving it in Pennsylvania I could not go up hill without losing ground and smelling something burning. Dealer unable diagnose. Then in 05 starting having brake grinding and squealing, dealer also claims this is normal operation. I have had to replace the water pump and the catalytic converter and only have 34,000 miles on the car. Also had a problem with smoke coming from the rear drivers side tire and burning smell on two occasions, also dealer is unable to duplicate. I believe the 2003 liberties have a problem and no one is willing to check into it. Chrysler does absolutely nothing to help.
