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 172001

Wrangler SE 2.5L

  • Manual transmission
  • 38,000 miles


dealership recalled fuel pump. took it in and they replaced it. this is the second one they put in. the next day I could smell gas and there was a few drops under the tank. I took the jeep back to the dealership. I waited 5 hours for them to tell me there was nothing wrong. Extremely P.O.'d, I drove it home. When I got out of the jeep I noticed a steady drip coming from my gas tank. I went back to the dealership to reem them a new A$$hole. When I got there, it must have been shift change because the dumb a$$ I saw earlier wasn't there. I showed the new guy the gas that was dripping and he immediately had a mechanic look at it. It ended up being a crack in the new fuel pump. They put in another one while I watched.
