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

  • 19,000 miles


For at least the third time, while off road jeeping in 4 wheel low, our Jeep 2006 lj rubicon self accelerated on its own. Once again, we roared into a tree before we could put the car in neutral or remove the key. (link to video:) after we bought the Jeep in 2009, the previous owner told us that he had experienced some self acceleration. He had it investigated by the original dealership, then took it to another Jeep mechanic and contacted Chrysler, who denied that there was a problem. We participate in Jeep jamborees and have experienced the problem and have tried to address it after receiving advice from various guides and mechanics at the jamborees. We have had two Jeep mechanics attempt solutions and we have even replaced the computer but the problem persists. Once again, we roared into a tree.
