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

  • Manual transmission

I had driven my Jeep Liberty for about 10 miles and parked it in my driveway at about 6 pm on wed Aug 15,2007. At midnight, I went to let the dog in and saw flames coming from the front passenger side of my car. I called the fire department. The whole front of the car was burned up. The car is totaled. I later found out there was a recall issued on that car for a defect in the ac blower motor. I was not using the ac that day.
