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.

2004 Jeep Wrangler Owner Comments

Wrangler 4WD 6-cyl

2004 Jeep Wrangler sport goes into a violent shake when driving approximately 55 mph. I've read about the death wobble on more than one web site or blog. I took it to the dealer, and they said it was the steering stablizer, but I believed this only mask, the real problem. I spoke to a local 4X4 shop and they said Jeep made the lower contol arm too short and this pushed the front end down and the angles were off. Also, said the aftermaket replacements were approx 3/4" longer than the oem. My Jeep was stock, not lifted. This problem has caused the tires to cup, brakes, and steering stabilizer to wear out earlier than normal. It was only a matter of time before someone got killed or injured.

Front brake vibrate violently, and have been changed 4 times within the 1.5 yrs I have owned the truck. My drivers seat frame is cracked (the metal frame) I use a pillow to keep it streight because it leans to thee left due to the weld crack in the frame. I have gotten no where with 2 different dealerships and shelled out well over 2.000 dollars on rotors and brakes. The rear brakes hardlry work also I can pull I=the emergency brake and the truck will not even slow down the fronts do all the work and it has been in for brake repairs by several different shops. There must be a recall because thie is a severe danger and is going to really cause a problem or worse deaths.
