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.

2011 Jeep Patriot Owner Comments

Driver's power door lock stopped functioning. It is solely the driver's door. All other power door locks function appropriately. The driver's door lock does not automatically lock when the minimum threshold speed is reached. It also does not automatically lock/unlock with a key fob. Power door locks were created to enhance driver safety, so the fact that this stopped functioning on a vehicle less than 3 years old is particularly concerning. A search of web sites suggests this is a known issue with these Jeep, but the dealer reports no recalls nor service bulletins.
