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

problem #2

My Jeep Wrangler shakes sporadically at 45 mph as described in previous posts by others. When my Jeep shakes it is very aggressive and I often have to apply my brakes suddenly to ease the jolting of my vehicle. I have almost wrecked my Jeep a couple times, I have sprained my wrist, and have had bruises merely from maintaining my vehicle. I just traded in my other car for this in April 2013 and can't afford to trade again. I am very disappointed. I can't even take my children in my Jeep or tow my camper. All because I can't even reasonably begin to fix the problems that I purchased with my Jeep. I wish I had known I was purchasing a death trap before hand. There is a very good reason these low milage Jeep's have made way to used car dealerships.

The consumer owns a 2004 Jeep Wrangler X. the safety defect was with the stick shift and when idling through town in second or third gear the engine speed would drops. The consumer did not floor the vehicle back to idle speed. The vehicle was taken to dealer, and the dealer replaced the throttle position sensor. The consumer had taken the vehicle back to the dealer for a second time and the dealer told him to drive it fast and maybe it will fix itself. Also the consumer contacted the manufacturer, and was told to file a safety complaint with NHTSA. (12/05/05)
