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

I was driving down my 3/10 mile private road, approximately a 12% grade with brake pedal engaged when suddenly the pedal went to the floor and the steering wheel locked. The car went 150' & down a 12' embankment head first onto a gravel drive and landed upside down. I was conscious at all times and crawled out the passenger side window. It was an hour before I was found. I had 2 broken legs & cracked 2nd vertebra. I spent 5 months in hospitals & a nursing home with a halo on my head & fixators on my legs. The car was totaled.

My 2005 Jeep Liberty was involved in a rollover accident with 4 fatalities on 9 June 07. The incident took place at highway speed on an interstate highway with no other vehicles involved. The driver and one passenger survived the accident with multiple injuries. The four passengers in the back seat of the Liberty were not wearing seat belts and were ejected from the vehicle during the rollover event. The driver felt that she had no control of the steering just prior to the rollover of the vehicle. The incident is currently under investigation. The consumer also stated the air bag did not deploy. The consumer stated the was a nail in the tire that could have caused low tire pressure, contributing to the loss of control of the vehicle which may have resulted in failure of the upper ball joints. A recall was performed on the lower ball joints in May 2007. Updated
