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 was driving on a city street around 2:30 pm when I notice smoke coming out from under my hood. I pulled off to a safe spot and by this time II could see the fire coming out of the front of my Jeep. Three fire inspectors looked at it and are unable to determine the cause of the fire. However, a Jeep mechanic also looked at it and believes the fire started behind the battery. The Jeep is totaled. Still waiting on reports from the insurance company. Cynthia I just wanted to give you an update. We did hire some people who went out and also were not able to fully determine the fire. I am having a hard time getting in contact with Chrysler. I will keep trying and let you know what they tell me. Depending on what they tell me we might move forward with more investigation. I will keep you updated. From progressive claim #161737586 agent amy etta ph. 503-495-4507

I purchased this vehicle 2 and a half weeks ago and it has been back to the dealer 4 times because of the check engine light. The first time they stated it was a sensor for the breaks. Second, time they stated, for the same thing a brake sensor. Third, time they said the sensor was bad. Now for the fourth time they are saying it's a module. No, it's time for a new truck a 2016 Jeep should not have the engine light come on at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it's time to be in the process to file the lemon law because the car has been back up their four times maybe even more for the check engine light.
