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.

We received the notice about the gas/fuel tank potential to catch fire, we took our vehicle to the dealer. The dealer explained that we have too much corrosion on our vehicle to be repaired. The cost to repair exceeds the value of the vehicle, currently we are still driving with a vehicle that may catch fire. We contacted Chrysler as we still are paying off the vehicle, we where given the run around until finally one associate told us simply, they will not help you. Prior to this recall notice we have constantly had issues when filling up with gas and the gas would leak out in large quantities instead of shutting off. We replaced the oil pan recently after it rusted out, we are about to replace to transmission fluid pan as that is about to rust out, the transmission lines are also rusting and corroded. Our Jeep may be an 05 but it looks as if its brand new rolling off the line, we take care of our vehicle. We are informed consumers and know there is a recall for Chrysler failing to fix the fuel tank explosion issues, when we looked up the VIN for our vehicle it was not showing that it is one of the one's being recalled. Our vehicle was not repaired and we should be included in this recall. We want to know if our vehicle will be included in the recall. We still have all the paperwork from visiting the dealer. When we took the vehicle up for the recall, the dealership told us that Jeep has issues with rust to begin with and that it is a known issue that has yet to be corrected.

Driving on the interstate near fort worth the left rear window just fell down the door. It distracted me and I almost crashed into a guardrail because of the sudden pressure change in the car. I sorta panicked since the baby in the back seat began crying since the window was on her side in the back seat. After contacting several Jeep owners, I have found out that this is a common problem with the windows on Jeep and it has already happened to the right side window last year. I used a zip tie to keep the window up. I saw a youtube vidio on how to do this. Since the right side window has a zip tie holding it up I no longer use that window. I think that Jeep should consider recalling this problem since eventually someone is going to get hurt because of this problem.
