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

Jul 152003

Wrangler 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 20,000 miles


The automatic transmission has very harsh engagement and produces a loud clicking noise. Over the past several weeks I have had my 2002 Jeep Wrangler in the service department and the repairs have not been performed satisfactorily. I am told Chrysler will not authorize the repairs or the replacement of the defective parts. The vehicle is still under full factory warranty, the transmission should be replaced if it can not be repaired.
