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 #3

Apr 272014

Wrangler 6-cyl

  • 2,900 miles


Transition & engine coolant temp immediately rose to alarm status (300 degrees) in first ever light duty 4 wd application. Off road 4WD conditions and terrain consisted of a 5% grade in low cut hay field. Alarm indicated immediate corrective action was necessary. Vehicle temperature gauges were rising from normal tolerances to alarm status in two minutes. Corrective action included cutting engine to cool. Corrective action also required blower and heater on highest settings to cool block and maintain operable driving condition temperatures. Engaging in the slightest load while 4 wheel drive train was engaged (off road) immediately replicated severe overheating condition of both tranny and block coolant. Vehicle was operable at normal operating temperatures at high speeds in two wheel drive while on pavement only. Vehicle is a 2014 Jeep sahara unlimited Wrangler with "V" 6 cyl motor automatic transmission with 2,900 miles on odometer (vehicle is brand new purchased in March 2014 - date of this report is April 2014).
