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.

problem #2

Wrangler 6-cyl

  • 32,450 miles


After driving a short distance and parking, I returned to find one tire flat. I changed the tire and returned home. The following morning I checked the damaged tire and found the valve stem missing. I drove to a service center and had the tire removed. The stem (with speed sensor attached) was loose inside the tire. We checked the remaining three wheels and found all wheels had badly corroded stem nuts, and that one of the nuts was cracked into three pieces. Removing all stem nuts damaged the sensors and all had to be replaced. The "new" parts are all of the same materials as the original items, thus I will have to replace the sensors, stems, and stem nuts every 2-3 years unless a fix is initiated.

The tire pressure monitors and valve stems in the Jeep need to be looked at. We have had two literally "blow out" of our tire in less than 2 months. The last time my husband and son were traveling on the highway and lucky they weren't hurt or killed as after it blew out the tire shredded and they ended up on his rim. I called Chrysler/Jeep and they have me a case #. our local Jeep dealer and a local tire store apparently told me this is a common problem that the valve stems/monitor rust and the seal isn't good on the tire anymore so they blow out...we could replace for $80 if we wanted...however there is no guarantee it won't happen again. Only way to fix it is to replace all monitors with rubber valve stems. I wasn't willing to wait on the "case" and have my family's safety at risk so I had them replaced on our Jeep. Of course Chrysler says there is nothing else they can do now B/C we handled it ourselves. We weren't asking for money or for them to pay -- all we want is to make sure this doesn't happen to someone else. They are aware of the problem and won't do anything about it. Someone is going to get killed. These can blow out at any time or place. My husband and son are just lucky. Please help get this problem taken care of before someone gets injured or dies!!!
