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

Aug 082003

Wrangler 4WD 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 12,500 miles


I was in an accident in October 2002 with my 2002 Jeep Wrangler X. I hit the person in front of me going about 40mph, and was then hit from behind. Neither airbag deployed, nor did the seat belt tighten. I hit my head on the stearing wheel. I tried to file a complaint with daimler-Chrysler corporation and was told since my vehicle was already being worked on there was nothing they could do about. I was in another accident August 8, 2003. Someone pulled out in front of me on the highway and I hit him going about 55 mph. The airbags again did not deploy. I am trying to get an answer out of daimler-Chrysler again and they keep giving me the run around about it.
