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.

2002 Jeep Wrangler Owner Comments

problem #3

Nov 082014


  • 60,585 miles


Frame is rusting away from inside out, holes are starting to appear around front most driver side body mount. Rust chunks can be seen and removed thru hole within the frame. 12 year old vehicle is too soon to have a frame rusting out. Chrysler should do as Toyota has done with their frame rust issue of the North East usa as well as for all Jeep owners that road salt has affected the integrity of the vehicles frame and body way too soon.
