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.

2016 Jeep Patriot Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 022016


  • 20,000 miles


I bought my 2016 Jeep Patriot new. It has 20,000 miles. The ABS and traction control light is on. Cruise control stopped working. Windshield wipers make popping noise when on. When at a stop the engine makes a rattling sound. When acceleration it makes a weird noise and takes forever to get it to the speed of 60mph. I can't get my car in for repair until June 14, 2016. Everything that went wrong happened at the same time except the windshield wipers. I smell a lemon in the bunch here!!!
