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.

Me and my dad were driving on the expressway and it was 65 miles an hour all of a sudden the Jeep started shaking violently and it did it 3 times while we're on the expressway. The Jeep was doin the death wobble and both of us were shaken up. The brakes went out and had a hard time stopping. It's ridiculous and I think that these parts should be recalled. I'm gonna call detroit tomorrow.

The clock spring ceased to work turning off the airbag, there was a shudder and the tcs (traction controlled system) began braking on its own. Then when the brakes were depressed the system went shuddery and quit working. This is a known issue with 2007 thru 2013 Jeep Wrangler and there is a recall on the part, except that crysler has determined that it only affects a very limited number of Jeep. This is not the case. A search on google will show hundreds of cases where the clock spring breaks, causing the airbags to become turned off and the end and tcs systems to go haywire, making the vehicle uncontrollable and undriveable. Chrysler has refused to recall the part in Wrangler Jeep Liberty and two other brands. The hazzard is compounded immensely if you happen to get (death wobble) yet another unfixed issue. This will lead to accidents and death, if it hasn't already.
