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.

The contact owns a 2008 Jeep Wrangler. The contact stated that the vehicle was taken to the dealer for diagnostic testing where he was advised that there was a leak on the surface of the engine. The contact called the manufacturer regarding the engine leak and the manufacturer stated that there was nothing they could do because the vehicle was not under warranty. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic for a second diagnostic test which determined that the front crankshaft seal would have to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 87,430. The current mileage was 85,000. Updated 12/31/12 updated 1/3/2013
