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

Jan 112015

Patriot 4WD 4-cyl

  • 75,000 miles


Driving on the interstate and auto suddenly lost power although engine was still running it would just idle, even with the gas pedal all the way to the floor, turned auto off and let it set for a few minutes and when it restarted it appeared to be ok, would take gas, then on 3-19-2015 this happened 3 different times within a 150 miles on the interstate, would have to unhook the battery and reconnect it before the problem would clear up, then drive it just a bit more and it would happen again.
