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.

The engine light was on. When trying to drive the vehicle it would have a hard start and the vehicle would shake and loose power.

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.
