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.

2006 Jeep Wrangler Owner Comments

problem #1

I own a 2006 Jeep Wrangler and besides excessive tire wear which the local dealership cannot seem to fix, my latest problem is with the ignition system. Originally I thought it was the ignition switch but when I called the dealership to get a new one the parts salesman told me that my problem wasn't with the switch (and he was right) the problem is a piece of plastic between the switch and the tumbler and that the only way to get the plastic piece was to buy the complete steering column. In that phone call he also informed me that he knew this due to the fact they have had several problems with the Wrangler 1997 on up and the factory hasn't done anything to correct the problem and the only way to get this little 50 cent piece was to buy a $500 steering column. I feel this should be a recalled item due to the fact they know it is a problem and I am afraid that while I'm driving the vehicle could shut down so I am not driving on the freeway so if it does shut down I wont have an uncontrollable vehicle at high speed.
