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

My Patriot with 108K miles stalled at 75 mph on the highway 3X last night on a 3 hour drive. It also stalled 4X times today on my 10 min way to drop it off at the dealership. Once while idling and 3X while driving at different speeds. Once while I was turning. I've read online that this has been happening quite a bit to 2011 Jeep Patriots and even caused a car to be totalled. Please investigate this.

While accelerating to merge onto the interstate, at around 55-60 mph, the engine stalled with no power to accelerate further or exit oncoming traffic. I coasted to the emergency lane off the side on the interstate. After stopping, the vehicle was placed in park and turned off. The first attempt to restart resulted in still no acceleration although engine started. The second attempt to restart was successful and I was able to drive at full speed to the next exit. Very frightening. I've never had a vehicle stall on the interstate before.
