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.

1997 Jeep Wrangler Owner Comments

problem #1

May 061998

Wrangler SE 2.5L

  • Manual transmission
  • 15,000 miles


The dust bezel on the 4x4 shift lever broke. Took to the dealership and they said I was too rough with it and they said that they don't cover parts that were broke when the vehicle was used for racing or off-roading. What the F&%*? It's a jeep. It's made for off-roading. They even tried to bill me $79 because this wasn't covered under warranty. I told them they could shove the bill up their A$$ and I wasn't paying anything. I called their complaints department and they were able to waive the fee. The next day, I took the center counsel out and glued the bezel back in place.
