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.

Liberty 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 4,000 miles

The transmission is leaking and the car has only 4,000 miles on it. Also, the rear wheels are making a loud squeal when driving the car for the first time of the day. Dealer said wheel noise is due to a needed rebuild of disc brakes and the manufacturer is aware of the problem. I am on a waiting list to get my brakes fixed. However, the tranny should not be leaking at only 4,000 miles.

Liberty 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 75 miles
Vehicle operates properly through 3rd gear prior to the torque converter clutch engaging. Once the torque converter clutch engages, there is a noticeable slipping. this is evident at/and above 50 mph, both on 3rd gear (with od off) and on 4th gear (with od on.) the slipping is not intermittent; it occurs once the vehicle is hot, and when there is a increase in engine load, such as when going up hills (long grade) or when the throttle pressure is increased. It is also most noticeable with the air conditioning on. The slip stops (or at least I do not feel it) once the tcc disengages.
