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.

problem #1

Dec 232008


  • 3,000 miles


The contact owns a 2009 Jeep Patriot. The contact heard a noise in the front end of the vehicle whenever he drove it. The noise was intermittent at first but became progressively worse over time. In addition to the noise, the vehicle would pull while the contact was driving. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer several times where the bushings, a sensor, front strut and a lower ball joint were replaced. The failure continued to occur. The dealer could not figure out what was causing the failure. The contact called the manufacturer who offered no assistance. The current mileage was approximately 46,000. The failure mileage was approximately 10,000.
