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 #1

Jul 212016


  • 2,000 miles


I purchased my Jeep in may and it only has 2000 + miles on it. While driving today the parking brake engaged automatically. It did it again 3 times on the freeway while I was on my way to the dealership about it. Every time I slowed down for a car it would engage and send that error. This will be the second time in a month I have had to take it to the dealership for issues. The first one was the overhead console was not working at all.
