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.

Wires for HVAC controls are melting in the plastic connector behind the dash. Some of the controls don't work right anymore. Wires could short and cause fire.

While driving at 55 mph smell of burning styrofoam permeated the interior of the vehicle. A few seconds later, heated styrofoam begun to be ejected from driver's side air vents. Vehicle was taken to the dealer, who informed the consumer that they were aware of the problem.

Wrangler 4WD

My Jeep started on fire around/in the steering column. Vehicle had sat unstarted for 4 days while on vacation when the fire occurred. Monday, August 25, 2001, it had rained and the water being on the wires is the "cause" of the electrical short which resulted in the fire. The soft top was on and the windows were removed. All contents of the glove compartment were dry.
