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.

2001 Jeep Wrangler Owner Comments

The Wrangler frame is extremely prone to rust and is very easily rotted out over the years. I believe this is due to a design flaw on Chrysler part. There are no drainage points at the lowest parts of the frame which holds in water and road salt and accelerates rust.

Wrangler 6-cyl

  • 92,000 miles
All Jeep Wrangler from 1987-2006 have a major problem with the frames rusting out cause them to be unsafe for driving on public road unless the frame is repaired or replaced, my frame on my 2001 Jeep rusted out with only 92000 miles on it. This is caused by the frame not being preped, painted, and designed properly allowing water to sit in the frame because there are no drain holes at the lowest point of the frame.

Driving through water results in chronic water accumulation in vehicle (front driver & passenger floor, rear driver & passenger floor, and tailgate floor). This began the very first time I drove through water with the vehicle. That was over 2 years ago. Since then, this problem has plagued my vehicle... occuring at least 3 major times since then. As a result, I've had damage to whatever happened to be on the floor at the time (books, clothes, shoes, wallet, purse). Not to mention the smell!
