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.

2008 Jeep Patriot Owner Comments

The vehicle was in motion when suddenly all the lights on the dash light up, the dials went crazy, the car bucked like it was stalling and then the engine cut off. I had the vehicle examined by a professional auto mechanic and he informed me that it was most likely the total integration power module which is common in most Jeep/Chrysler and have had a number of issues in recent years. It is an expensive repair to replace the entire tipm, but not doing so means driving the car is unreliable and incredibly dangerous, especially to other drivers who may not expect the car in front of them to suddenly stop.
