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.

I have a 2011jeep wangler. I have had my Jeep into the dealership four times so far for a leaking roof. Each time I get it back it is supposed to be fixed and the problem is worse. I pd them $1500. On the first visit. They even sent it back to me wet once. It has had so much water in it so many times I wonder if it has mold. I have had it detailed and dried several times, but what about what I can't see, in the vents...every time I turn on the ac or heater or defrost am I blowing mold spores all over and then breathing them in? it has been so wet inside after a bad rain I had condensation on the roof...inside my Jeep. Everything in my Jeep gets wet, coats, towels, mail or any paper, damp and soft. It seems to me that they've known about this problem, but refuse to take responsibility for their manufacturing error. However they have discontinued the freedom style top. It seems like a way to get out of actually recalling the style, they'll just call it discontinued. I am so disappointed in my experiences w/this, in total they've had my car for at least a month, working on a water leak. Seems like quite a bit of time, my Jeep must have leaks everywhere. I have never removed any of the pieces on my top, so it can't be that I'm not properly putting them back on. Jeep has continued to make money by charging customers to replace seals, and sending people home w/a leak worse than when they took it in. Ive asked them to clean the inside of the vehicle and the vents, I don't know if those things will happen as it is in the dealership now 9 days this time and don't know when I'll get it back. The first year I had my Jeep the passenger door popped open while I was driving. I took it to the dealership and they replaced the seal free of charge because it was defective.

6/9/15 had tires replaced & aligned merchant's tire. 1 day later tire wobbling took it back, they claimed they couldn't assist. Took it to a local shop & balance it 3 times in 2 weeks. Noticed while driving, commuters stay about a half a mile away from me & flash lights. Took it to the dealership marlow hts, they claim they couldn't find anything wrong. Tire still wobbling took it to wal mart auto, while trying to check, they broke my wheel lock! looking for a trustworthy place to fix my vehicle. No one seems to want to work these days. A friend just sent this site & I learned of this death wobble thing in Jeep Wrangler. I have been dealing with this for 7 months now and I'm livid!

My gas cap keeps falling out and a light that says gas cap on my dash with engine light came on. We took it to auto zone they put it on their machine and it says need to replace gas cap so we did the light didnt go out but today Sept 8,2015 the gas cap that I bought fell out and broke to pieces on pavement going 55 miles per hr. What is wrong with this problem how do I correct it. And now I also have a light on my dash that looks like a car skidding but my anti skid button is where it is suppose to be. I took it a month ago they told me their machine wouldnt pick it up but they said they thought it has to do with anti braking system. Could you please help

On my 2011 Jeep Wrangler rubicon unlimited (lhd) dashboard, the airbag warning light flashes on every other minute with a chime, an indication that there is something malfunctioning or interfering with the vehicle's airbags.this has been a recurring issue and concern for many 2007 and newer Jeep Wrangler (lhd) owners, including myself, and has been shown time and time again to be caused by a faulty clockspring within the vehicle's steering wheel. This faulty clockspring is the culprit for potential airbag failure in the Jeep Wrangler (lhd) during an accident or premature deployment when simply driving around. Daimler Chrysler has refused to address the safety concern of their faulty clockspring that can cause failure of the vehicle's airbags from properly deploying.

I was driving my 2011 Jeep Wrangler about 5-8 mph when I heard a "pop" type of noise. I then saw a flame under the hood on the passenger side. All of a sudden, my throttle locked up and my car wouldn't stop. I had both feet on the brakes, but my tires kept spinning. My electrical was locked up and I couldn't get the Jeep out of drive and into park. My boyfriend ran over, jumped in the passenger side to try to get the Jeep into park, as I couldn't get it to move. He fractured his hand in two places getting the gearshift to go into park. At this point there was black smoke coming from the under the hood. He was finally able to get it into park. At that point he helped pull me out the passenger side of the Jeep as the fire/flames were starting to come thru the dashboard into the inside of the Jeep. It took about an hour to get the fire out, then approx. 15-20 min later the fire started again on the passenger side.

I started feeling a warble when I would hit a bump on the road, took it into a les schawb they told me it was warn tie rod ends, so I then took it to Jeep dealer 'lithia" in eugene Oregon they inspected it and said nothing was wrong. Today I was coming home on hwy 126 and after I hit a part of the road that is rough, the Jeep totally went out of control the whole thing was shaking so bad I had everything I could do to slow it down and pull off to the side of the road, it probably would feel like if all 4 tires popped at once. It scared me so bad, I was just shaking. I got out looked at all the tires, and underneath, L seen nothing wrong so I put on my 4 way flashers and drove home the last 3 miles at a crawl. I will contact Jeep again on Monday and tell them there is a problem, the power steering has also went out twice on this and had to be fixed.

My Jeep has a six speed manual transmission and it pops out of 2nd and 4th gear into neutral since purchased Nov. 06, 2010. I called Jeep and they said that it must pop out when they drive it. I am setting up an appointment. But this is a safety issue because I will be eventually rear ended. Why isn't this on a recall?
