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.

I called koon Jeep sales rep, to inform him of the leak through the dome light, wanted know if I were in an accident! my Jeep corporate case #[xxx], I informed my Jeep customer care that I want out of the vehicle, he said I didn't meet the requirement, refered me to BBB and attorney state general. The suggested process through attorney state general is to write a certified letter with signature required. I called corporate asking for mailing address, it could not be provided due to the department handling my case was close and to call back mon. 19th Dec. 2011 I took it in for service, the drain plug was pinched! asked if the hood of car replaced, electrical wiring inspected and electronics, ok? dealer customer care rep, [xxx], said yes, the gps is garbled speech and the vehicle hesitates while pulling off and periodically while driving at this point I'm searching for legal counsel! information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
