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.

1998 Jeep Wrangler Owner Comments

problem #3

Wrangler 4WD

  • miles


We have had numerous problems with this vehicle all pretaining to the front end, the steering wheel will start shaking really bad at between 40-50 mph and we have had loud banking noice come from the front end and when shifting. The tires have had to be replaced 4 times before they even had 9,000 miles on them. The vehicle is a real lemon. There has been many problems with the paint peeling as well as problems with the ball joints. They are now refusing to fix the front end again that we have had problems with since we bought it.
