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

Feb 012009

  • 90,000 miles


I went out to start my Jeep one morning and there was noise coming from the engine. I drove it to work and it ran fine, but was making that noise. I took it into the Jeep dealer where I bought it and left it so they could check it out. Later that day when I called the service dept. to check on it I was told that I needed a new engine. The assistant service manager told me it would cost about $4,000.00 for a rebuilt engine. I told him I had to think about it. I kept driving it and a few days later refilled the gas tank. I went out the next morning and it ran fine, the noise was gone and has never come back. I had bad gas that caused the trouble. I had to pay the Jeep dealer $100.00 for them to tell me I needed an engine when I didn't. I called their corporate office to complain and was told I could take it to another dealer to have it checked. I told the guy he must be nuts if he thought I was going to give them another $100.00. I think my money should have been refunded. This service manager was a rip-off. The repair estimate he gave me only said there was noise from the engine, nothing itemized, and that it would cost $4,000.
