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: Be warned the previous model year (2015) Jeep Renegade has a large number of complaints reported by owners. Time will tell whether the 2016 Renegade has the same issues.

2016 Jeep Renegade Owner Comments

problem #3

My windshield chipped & cracked. The strange thing is the crack is on the inside behind the rear view mirror, not on the outside of the car. Which leads me to believe it wasn't a rock or stone that hit the wind shield but there must be a defect in the glass. I called Jeep & they won't acknowledge a defect unless you organization says so. I've read about other Renegade owners with the same issue online and Jeep won't do anything. Can you help?

My car was stationary in the parking lot at my apt and the windshield cracked on the passenger side top right to the middle by the rear view mirror. Also just recently something hit the windshield and it has a large round shattered crack. The windshield seems to crack very easily.

My Jeep Renegade in 3 short months has had 4 different incidents of things flying up and breaking the windshield. The first three I was simply driving on the street I live on. No construction, no loose asphalt, and no debris in road. The last incident happened when a small bird hit the windshield and completely shattered the drivers side windshield.
