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 air bag light came up and a mechanic with license told me that; that main sensor along side the steering tube did not work and if I have an accident the air bags would not function. Tell me if the maker is or not responsible for the problem I'm facing.

Patriot 4WD 4-cyl

  • 63,580 miles
I own a 2008 Jeep Patriot. The mileage is 63592 miles. Recently the airbag warning light started intermittently flashing and chiming and the dealership told me that the clock spring needed to be replaced. I had that done at a cost of $614. This car has never been in an accident and there is no reason for a safety device like its airbags to have a problem. I feel that Chrysler should be paying for replacement of the clock spring.
