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.

The contact replaced both tail lights on eight occasions. An accumulation of water was located on the front driver's side floorboard area which originated from the engine compartment. In addition, water intrusion emitted from the rear lift gate. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer for diagnosis.

While driving the vehicle, water began to seep out of the maplights and down both A-frame pillars. Panoramic moon roof stopped closing all the way after a wind storm and was open enough to cause major leakage (upwards of 3 gallons of water). I feel this is defective and could have caused a major accident, as traveling at high rate of speed, this could have resulted in the roof flying open. Manufacturer has stated it is not an issue that they provide any assistance with, and the repairs will be over $7000.

I own a 2008 Jeep Liberty that has a sky slider. I had opened the slider approximately four times (not exaggerating) and on the fourth time, when trying to shut it back it "broke". the slider went off track and I had to manually close it. This was all while sitting in my garage! once I took off the slider would whip in the wind and I was so afraid it would rip off I literally was going 40mph on the interstate. I had it fixed for $2500. I have never opened it again for fear that will happen again. Now going down the road from 50mph on, I can't even hold a conversation it is so noisy. If I get behind semi-trucks the slider starts to flap due to the front of it starting to "peel" back. I understand they have quit making this model and I understand why! I strongly urge a recall on this as many of us are out of money from fixing it and I can't even sell it. No one wants it because of the slider. Now im stuck with a low class vehicle while paying high class monthly payments. I feel I have been scammed!

The sky slider roof on my 2008 Jeep Liberty began to open due to the wind flow at highway speed. I pulled off of the highway to attempt to close the roof. I was unable to close the roof as it appeared to be off its' tracks. I took surface roads home as I was concerned about the roof's stability at high speeds. Once home we were able to close the roof most of the way manually. I reseached this problem and found multiple cases of this roof failing. In some cases the roof actually flew off and caused an accident. Apparently Chrysler is aware of the problem but has not issued a recall. Any assistance you can give me is greatly appreciated. I am very concerned about this roof's stability, especially at highway speeds.
