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.

When the weather turned cold the tire sensor light came on. I asked at the dealership about it and they said it is so cold out that you lose a bit of pressure and once the weather turns warm the light will turn off. The weather is now in the 50-60 degree range and I just had an oil change with tire pressure checked and the light is still on. I do not want to pay a lot of money to get this fixed because now I think it is a bad sensor. This is very dangerous because if I ignore it and there is a real problem I could get into an accident because of low tire pressure which could result in severe injury or death and that would follow a major lawsuit because we have been dealing with this problem for a few months now and I notice that others have experienced this same problem. Please a recall for this problem before someone gets injured.

Continued failure of tire pressure monitoring system in 2011 Jeep Patriot latitude 4X4. Our brand new 2011 Jeep Patriot latitude 4X4 has experienced continued failure of the tire pressure monitoring system. On four separate occasions it the TPMS light has activated indicating a low time pressure issue in the tires. Each time the tire pressure is checked and determined to be correct. We have now taken this Jeep to our local dealer, sport durst Chrysler Dodge Jeep, on three separate occasions for this issue. The most recent time we were told that the TPMS was set to the incorrect pressure and was set correctly. Despite this, the TPMS light has come on once again. I believe that this is an important safety issue as a malfunctioning TPMS will result in Jeep owners ignoring the light. This could result in complacency when there could, in fact, be a real tire pressure problem that requires attention.
