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.

The engine light has come on 4 times in the first 14 months of owning the car as a result of problems with the egr valve. This is typically prefaced by the car being sluggish when pulling from a parking spot.

Liberty 4WD 4-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission

: the contact stated the malfunction indicator light intermittently illuminated. The dealership replaced the egr valve five times. This has not remedied the problem. The mechanic at the dealership informed the contact that if this light illuminated, this was a good indicator that the vehicle could lose power. The contact stated that the mechanic told him that if he drove the vehicle of the lot it will break down on the road. Was given a rental car for three weeks.

The contact complained about several problems. The first problem occurred when slowing down to 50 mph, the vehicle jerked. The second problem involved the egr valve which was replaced.

The vehicle was inspected by the dealer, and an oil leak was discovered coming from the return line on the turbo. No repairs have been made. Updated 01/04/06.
