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.

2014 Jeep Patriot Owner Comments

This car I purchased has manual door locks. My wife has great difficulty unlocking the rear doors and for my mother in law it is impossible. The car was ordered so I was unaware of this problem. I believe the young, elderly, and those physically impaired would find it impossible to unlock the rear doors. Personnel at the dealership agree with my assessment and I have taken it back three times and was told they could not fix it. My last visit was today and spoke to the field service manager and he said nothing could be done. I sincerely believe that not being able to open the back door is an accident waiting to happen.
