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.

2010 Jeep Patriot Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 292012

Patriot 4-cyl

  • 20,500 miles


Bought a used 2010 Jeep Patriot a month and a half ago with less than 20,000 miles on it and no apparent problems. Drove my car on December 29th after coming back from christmas vacation and was greeted by a waterfall coming out of my map light. After stopping, also discovered a lake of water behind the drivers seat. Since I discovered this late in the day that Saturday, and the new year's holiday was the beginning of the week, I couldn't get my car into the dealership for service until Thursday. In the mean time, it rained again and I had yet another water disaster to deal with.
