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.

My Jeep Wrangler has the well known defect appropriate consumer name "the Jeep death wobble" there is no guaranteed repair in this defect that causes and has caused accident and / or death. I will not repair a Jeep that I did not cause the defect in the manufacture. My Jeep is well maintained, never taken off road, never altered any of the original manufacture design and parts. This defect is affecting thousands upon thousands of consumers and there is no guaranteed repair if any and I will not risk the lives of my family, friends, enemies, children, babies, pets, those innocent people driving around me with their non-defective vehicle and I will not risk my life at the hands of daimler Chrysler defective Jeep Wrangler since 2003. This to be a priority for this defect in 50% to 75% Jeep Wrangler may cause and has caused accident and or death. Yours in success,

This is the first of three similar incidents concerning two different Jeep and clockspring failure. In this incident they advised that it was caused from a big jarring. In the second incident they said dust. The third one, in a separate 2008 wranger I replaced myself. They charge approximately $150 for less then a minute of diagnostic and approximately $250 for a part that costs less then $180. I believe this is a fleecing of the public and needs the attention of your Agency. There is a way to disable the the airbag sound and because of these costs it could/will lead to a death from failure.

Severe wobble in front end where control of vehicle is hard to maintain. It began intermittently and briefly and now is repetitive and sustained. My Wrangler is now being evaluated for the fourth time and needs a steering dampener replaced (which was the recall) along with replacing upper and lower ball joints. Chrysler reportedly had 4,000 of these vehicles recalled under service bulletin number: Csn-J34 with this same issue. My vehicle is not included in the recall. This vehicle and others like it is going to kill someone. The front end of the vehicle violently shakes/wobbles at normal highway speeds. I was told by the dealer that this was a "known engineering flaw".

Feeling in front end suspension of a loose component. You can feel it in the steering wheel when the vehicle engine compartment is hot. Dealership claims no problem found. Still having problem today and everyday. Spoke to other Jeep owners they think it may be in the steering shaft which runs close to the exhaust manifold.

Driving on the interstate at approximately 65 mph, and the front end began shaking violently. I started pulling over and when I got down to 35 mph, the shaking stopped. I was able to drive for a couple of weeks without incidence, and then it happened again with increasing frequency. This was a stock Jeep bought new without any after-market alterations with only 52K miles. I took it into midas, and they said I needed a new steering stabilizer. They replaced it, and it did not solve the problem. I took it to another mechanic, and they replaced trackbar, but it didn't solve the problem. I took it back to midas, and they put another new stabilizer, still had the problem with ever-increasing frequency. I put new tires on the car, and the problem went away for about 20K miles. At 73K, the problem started again. This time I took it the Jeep dealer. They knew what the "death wobble" was, and they said they would check everything. They reported back that there was nothing wrong with the components, and suggested I get the tires balanced again. I got the tires balanced and took it back a week later to the dealer as the problem was happening with more frequency, and now was occurring at speeds between 45-55 mph. I suggested a particular patch of highway for a test drive. They called me back and said, "there is something seriously wrong." They then worked with Chrysler to identify and "solve" the problem. They replaced the tire rods and joints. Three days later I experienced the problem again, and then again, and again. I have spent approximately $1400 to "fix" this problem, and it continues to persist. Do an online search of "death wobble" and you'll find entry after entry and even videos. I'm really worried that one of these times when I and forced to quickly slow down and head to the shoulder, I'm going to end up rear ended by a tractor trailer.

With cruise control on, traveling 65 mph North on I-95, melbourne, Florida, the Wrangler steering wheel started shaking violently almost loosing my grip. The entire Jeep started shaking violently as if the wheels were coming off. I had to apply the brakes, turn on emergency flashers and slowed down to about 25 mph. The Wrangler evened out after slowing down to 25mph on I-95. The steering wheel, being almost uncontrollable, could have caused lives lost. Please don't wait for that to happen. Something has to be done now. This is a stock Jeep. Thank you.

Wrangler

  • 46,695 miles
Was traveling at 55 miles per hour and hit a bump in the road. The front end started shaking like I had blown a tire. I pulled over, waited a few minutes and drove away. A few weeks later, the same thing happened. Took it to the dealership, was advised steering stabilizer was defective, took the vehicle to the dealer several times, after that only to drive away in an unsafe vehicle. The problem was not corrected by the dealership. Got tired of fighting with Jeep to fix the problem so I had to get the parts and fix it myself, but I still have the old parts. In addition, damage to the tires due to the steering stabilizer. Also do to the faulty part it caused damage to the tires and they still need replaced. Failure mileages was 46,695.
