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

Northern Minnesota - the side windows completely frost over making it impossible to see. I have to scrape the windows to see out at intersections. The windshield itself will only defrost 70%. I have to use either full defrost mode -- leaving my feet to freeze -- or alternate between 50/50 feet/defrost and full defrost. I have tried cracking the windows or turning on the ac with heat but to no avail. This creates a dangerous driving situation. The windows often freeze shut so it is not possible to wind the window down at intersections either. This has been happening all winter. Today it was -5 degrees here and the colder it is the worse the frost over on the windows is. I can not see at all out of either the drivers or passenger side windows.
