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.

2008 Jeep Wrangler Owner Comments

problem #3

Mar 102011

Wrangler 4WD 6-cyl

  • 51,054 miles


Hitting a uneven patch of road or a solid bump causes the front end to shim to the point that the whole vehicle jerks and the steering wheel feels like it is going to pull out of your hands. Happens at least 1-3 times a week. Called Jeep they are aware of the issue and said it is due to the way the front end is designed and wear on the bushings. They fixed the issue in the 2010 with a heavy duty front end bar and I was told by the service center at a dealer in West palm beach Florida that "until a recall is placed I would have to pay out of pocket to fix this issue as the vehicle is out of warranty at this point in time".
