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 #1

Apr 132003

Wrangler 4WD 6-cyl

  • 53,846 miles


The 2002 Jeep Wrangler caught on fire while driving on I270 around St louis and burned to the ground. The fire started underneath the vehicle. I have before and after pictures. Complete pictures of the vehicle after the fire. R.a. bott, special investigator for Jeep, claimed no malfunction by Jeep. This was a fuel line explosion in that the fuel line ended up with a pin hole leak and sprayed fuel on the catalytic converter and the Wrangler caught fire and blew up minutes after I got off the road. Thank you to a vehicle that alerted me to the fire coming out the back of the vehicle as I was driving.
