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

problem #5

I was not notified that my Patriot was under a major safety recall. I contacted Chrysler Corp. And was given the run around. I finally was put into a rental that I did not have to pay for ( I had to pay the first week because they refused to pay for it at first) and as of now my car is sitting in my garage with a full tank of gas, brand new transmission and brand new tires. There is no fix and I have been in a rental for about two months. I feel this recall is bigger then they are leading on and that there will not be a fix. I do not know what to do. I am extremely upset that I have been driving this care for over three years with my children in it and the possibility of the safety system not working terrifies me. Please let me know what I can do about this. I am at a loss of words. Side not: My drivers air bag malfunctioned a few months ago when I was driving it. This was before the recall and if I did not purchase a warranty I would have paid out of pocket.

Safety recall N01 / NHTSA 13V-233 reprogram occupant restraint control module this Jeep Patriot passenger seatbelt unlocks itself. When there is pressured applied to belt and it unlocks. It scares me because at times I have passengers such as my daughter and if anything happens to her or anyone else that is riding in my car I dont have a clue to what I would do.
