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. Notes: The 2015 Jeep Renegade has a very large volume of complaints for such a new model, especially compared to other SUVs in the same class.

Most Jeep Renegade complaints are for various problems with interior accessories & electrical systems, as well as squealing brakes, transmission (rough shifting) and engine problems.

The vehicle has stalled at high speeds, or idled and shook before finally sputtering and engine dying. Various issues at various speeds. Could not restart and had to tow. Engine stalled at full speed three times all while vehicle was brand new, first month of ownership and under 1500 miles.

I was on the highway when suddenly my brand new car stalled and would not shift back into gear. The car became immobilized and had to get towed back to the dealership. They replaced the fuel valve and did not test for transmission or electrical issues. Two days later the same thing happened on the highway. I took it to a different dealership and they did not know what was wrong with it, so they updated the software in the car because two updates were available. I got the car back and it broke down for a third time, again after only 2 days. The car is currently in the shop and Chrysler is reluctant to buyback the vehicle. Nobody can figure out what is wrong.
