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.

This is a recall that has not been fixed I have called dealerships since 2013 and no one has call me back. This recall is for the transmission oil cooler tub may come in contact with power steering fluid return tube. Prolonged contact with the tubes could cause a leak in the transmission oiler cooler tube. Operating the vehicle with insufficient transmission fluid may cause damage to the transmission and a loss of transmission function which increases the risk of a crash.

I received a notification a few months ago of a recall on the transmission oil cooler tube which could lead to a crash. I contacted my dealer & have been waiting for an appointment to address this recall. As of my last conversation with him a few days ago, he informed me that it would be at the very least 9 months before he could schedule an appointment, that he was not receiving the parts from Jeep. In the interim my 17 year old daughter is driving an unsafe vehicle which Jeep itself issued a recall for and they are apparently not honoring this recall, and are unconcerned that they are putting their customers in danger.

Wrangler 6-cyl

  • 10,200 miles
I received my second notice for a recall involving the transmission oil cooler tube which may effect the power steering fluid return tube or transmission itself. I called the dealer to schedule an appointment for the work to be done, I was advised by dealership that I will be placed on the waiting list of over 140 people as the part is on backorder and they are only allowed to order 1 part (for this recall) every 14days. I contacted Chrysler and was advised this is correct, they limit the part to dealerships since it must be distributed evenly nationwide. When I asked, "why the part isn't being made in mass production to accommodate the need required to fulfill this recall?", Chrysler did not have an answer. I'd like to know how the consumer is supposed to feel safe in their vehicle that is known to have a problem (hence the recall) when the manufacturer doesn't feel it necessary to supply the parts needed to fix the vehicles. A recall doesn't do anyone any good if the parts aren't readily available to correct the problems. This seems more like a stall tactic from the manufacturer to renege on their responsibility.
