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.

There is a leak in the rear of the vehicle. I have taken this vehicle to dealership 6 different times to be fixed. It is sitting in body shop trying to get fixed again. I am very upset at the way this is being handled. I really would like to talk to someone about my issues on this vehicle.

I autostarted my car without the heat or anything on. After a few minutes I went outside to get in and as I walked up to my car the back windshield exploded out. There was glass everywhere. I immediately took it to my dealership and they have to send the claim in to Chrysler drectly before the windshield can be fixed. The car was never touched and the window just blew out!

September 4th 2015 I purchased a brand new 2015 Jeep Patriot it only had 10 miles on the odometer Sep 5th the second day of driving the vehicle I noticed the vehicle had acceleration problems it took a few seconds longer to accelerate after I stopped the car at the light getting off the ramp from the freeway I figured it was just a coincidence since the car was brand new over the days of driving I noticed that it was steady taking delay time to pick up speed as I accelerated from stopping at lights & stop sign on the other hand I did notice the brake system was lousy I had to stop early ahead of time in order for my vehicle to slow down and even stopping early sometimes didn't work I had to swerve out of the lane just to prevent myself from hitting another vehicle..I brought my vehicle in two weeks later to get my brakes inspected the guy told me that I just need to slow down a lil bit earlier before you usual have to stop.did really make a difference brake system is still lousy as F*** and to add insult to injury on September 24 I went to get my vehicle washed at kellys car wash I drove to the car wash put my car in neutral had all the windows rolled up tight and doors locked as I proceeded through the carwash everything was going fine until it was time to rinse water started coming from my dome light pouring on down into my air conditioning system and water started leaking from the right side passenger above the windshield I instantly panic as the vehicle was getting done through the carwash I pulled over and called my insurance company to file a claim & then called the dealership they told me to come in I came in they said that there was nothing they can do for me I will have to set an appointment so I set an appointment now I'm just waiting for my appointment to come on September 30 it rained & now my car has water spots on the passenger side above the dashboard

Hood release lever when getting out of car left foot catches on lever releasing hood. Lever protrudes from side panel. I have a bad left leg so I have to drag leg out of car. I can catch lever releasing hood without knowing it. Safety latch does prevent hood from opening up if I do not notice hood is open.
