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.

On the 18th of January of 2014, I was driving back home on a rural road where the speed limit is 25mph and I was driving around 15 mph because the road doesn't have an adequate pavement, where there is alot of pot holes. My 2004 Jeep Liberty on a small hill, came to a sudden stop shutting all the system which turned the vehicle off. I attempted to turn the car back on, by turning the switch and it wouldn't turn on. I waited approximately 3 minutes when I saw a thick black smoke coming from the hood. I attempted to react quickly and saw that the doors were closed shut. I forced the door to open and ran quickly to the front of the vehicle. I lifted the hood and it was steaming hot that it burned my fingers, I then opened the hood and witnessed that the vehicle's motor was completely in smoke. I began to car 911 and stepped aside when flames started to come out from the motor. In less than 8 minutes the car was completely in fire. Both police and fire department assisted me during this tragic event. I have both reports to evidence the events that had occurred. I have attempted various times to contact Chrysler within my local area and have not received any return call from them, while they have indicated that they will send a inspector to verify the vehicle, I left all of my personal details and am still waiting for their visit. I have been waiting and I have continued to call them in effort to have an inspector to verify my loss knowing that the car is still within the vehicle guaranteed, still I have not received any response after a two months of the incident. Here, I have not only suffered from material loss but also Chrysler in my area does not demonstrate corporate responsibility nor customer satisfaction or concern for their state of being.

Liberty 6-cyl

  • 100,175 miles
Vehicle indicated that passenger front door was ajar, this after ten minutes of driving. Door was in fact not ajar. Passenger opened and closed door just to check, door then would no longer fully close. Pulled manual lock to see if it was stuck, whole piece came out. Smoke started pouring out of hole and door metal was very hot to the touch. Removed door panel to put out fire inside. Lock actuator motor melted down and parts were smoldering. During this process the electronic back glass popped open as well and will no longer latch either. Chrysler recalled some 2004 Liberty's for these motors overheating and seizing, was informed that this vehicle was not included and that we should have 'maintained the wiring in the door'. this vehicle is meticulously maintained!
