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

problem #2

Nov 012010


  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles


On a few occasions, going at a high rate of speed, my car will buck as if it's trying to change gears, but cannot. It's very jarring and scary. I've taken it in twice for inspection and the mechanics can't find anything wrong with the transmission. They suggested it was user error. Yes, I'm deliberately scaring myself and risking accidents.

Liberty Sport 3.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 130,000 miles

I took it to a mechanic a week after I bought it.He drove it,but didn't hear the clunk. I then realized that it happened off & on,about once a month.I've had it checked twice more,but no one thinks it's a big deal..since they don't hear it. Now it clunks into a different gear while I'm sitting at a light! Changes gears while I'm driving. I can't really afford a new transmission for this stupid,old vehicle.With the other recalls-,that the dealer refuses to fix,I'm ready to junk it.
