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.

2013 Jeep Wrangler Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 232015

This incident happened February 23, 2015 around 9am. It was snowing that day and the temperature was in the 20's. I was in the vehicle and had the defroster/heater turned up all the way. About 5 minutes later of sitting, I heard a popping noise. About a few seconds later of hearing this popping noise I slowly see a crack on the bottom of the driver side windshield just over 16 inches but no more than 2 feet long. I recently just moved from san diego and my Jeep has never seen snow or had experience with the cold weather before. I went on (Jeep enthusiast website) and that is where I found out that I wasn't alone. More Jeep had their windshield crack during the winter due to them turning the defroster/heater abruptly. I think there is a defect on the windshield or the insulation and needs to be addressed. Chrysler/Jeep had declined the warranty because they claim its from an external factor. And I assure you, I don't have a chip on my windshield.
