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.

2004 Jeep Liberty Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 222008

Liberty 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 36,700 miles


Brakes on 2004 Jeep Liberty lock up after approximately 15 to 20 miles of travel. This failure of the brakes has caused this vehicle to slide on icy or wet roadways potentially causing a major accident with potential injuries. Additionally, the brakes will become hot and begin to smoke. This is a potential fire hazard. Problem was corrected by dealer replacing the brake master cylinder. The vehicle in question had only 37,111 miles and was just out of warranty.
