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.

1997 Jeep Wrangler Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 181997

Wrangler SE 2.5L

  • Manual transmission
  • 600 miles


Only had the jeep for 3 days. Drove it from Michigan to Indiana and it costed over $400 in gas. Dealership in Indiana said it needed a fuel rail, regulator, injectors(basically a new fuel delivery system) but my jeep wasn't under warranty. Apparently my lease didn't have a warranty. I explained to them that the jeep was only 3 days old and I was on my way to Florida for a vacation. They were actually nice and used some left over parts from other jeeps to get mine working again. I ended up driving back home and taking my girlfriends car to Florida. When I got back, I went to the bank and we renegotiated the lease to get a warranty. I took the jeep to the dealership and they didn't want to fix it. They said that there was no record of the Indiana dealership fixing my jeep. At this point I was P.O.'d. I threw the keys at them and told them to keep the damn jeep and I left. I called the bank and told them that I no longer wanted the jeep because nobody would fix it. Long story short, I had to get a lawyer to get them to fix it. This was just the beginning with my problem with this Jeep.
