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.

problem #1

Nov 162010


  • Manual transmission
  • 50,000 miles

Why am I reading about the "death wobble" everywhere, yet no one has filed a lawsuit? Nor does anyone have a single fix to the problem. It appears that there are many suggested "fixes" yet no one is able to completely fix the problem. Why was this steering problem not a recall from Jeep/Chrysler? When I go over 50 mph and hit a tiny rock, my steering wheel shakes so horribly that my arms hurt the next day from trying to keep control of my vehicle. The only way to stop the shaking is to come to a complete stop (causes traffic problems and I am no longer comfortable taking my children or grandchildren with me in the vehicle). I am seeing HUNDREDS upon HUNDREDS of stories of this problem when googled "Jeep Death Wobble". Why is no one taking up this cause?
