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

All 4 wheel brakes werr bad, $600 bad. I never heard any squealing, pulsing, anything indicating the brakes were going, inspection people all said they seemed okay. I decided to bring it in to a non-dealer due to having 48000 on the oem pads. Pads were shot, rotors scored, etc. $600 later, all seemed okay anyone else not have any indicators of brakes going bad?

: the contact stated there was a constant grinding noise alerting the driver there was a problem with the rear brakes. The vehicle was inspected by a service dealer who determined the right rear caliper, both rotors and brake pads needed to be replaced in order to remedy in order to remedy the problem. The replacement remedied the problem on the right side, but the grinding noise is now present on the left side. The vehicle has been returned to the service dealer for inspection, but has not been repaired.

2004 Jeep Liberty. Rear brake disc. Took the vehicle to the Firestone dealer, and showed them the disc plate. Rotors. They were only grooves on the outside of the plate, and the inside of the plate was smooth and clean. Called the manufacturer, and they said since vehicle had 16,000 miles on it they could not replace them unless the dealer said it was a defect. The manufacturer said consumer had to pay for the inspection as well as the repairs. Dealer would make a determination whether or not that it was a defect or not. There was not brake pad failure, it could have been a caliper failure. I had new rotors and new brake pads put in at the cost $350 plus tax.
