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 #3

Tire air fill valve stem corroded due to road salt. Common issue on Jeep forums. The alloy metal just evaporates over time and snaps off when adding air or washing the rims but have heard of them coming apart driving down the road. Seems to occur just below the valve cap edge. Switched to rubber valve stems but lost auto tire air pressure monitor.

The contact owns a 2010 Jeep Patriot. The contact was driving approximately 40 mph when the aluminum tire valve malfunctioned and caused the tire to deflate. The tire was taken to an independent dealer and replaced. The manufacturer was contacted but no solution was offered. The VIN was not available. The failure mileage was 124,000.

Patriot 4-cyl

Tire low sensor was activated. Upon checking tire pressure, noticed two valve stems were broken off. They were replaced at owners expense as Chrysler said it wasn't covered under warranty. Car currently has three more broken stems. Material seems to be defective and cannot replace stems without replacing entire sensor.
