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.

2016 Jeep Wrangler Owner Comments

Jeep leaks everytime it rains. Leaks on both sides but passenger side is the worse. Soaks the floors and passenger side seat. Drips out from under the dash as well on passenger side. Water can cause electrical issues under the dash, moisture in floor and seat cause the windows to fog up at times which makes it difficult to see out of, and presence of a mildew smell will eventually turn into mold. Vehicle has been in shop many times and still not repaired.

This vehicle has a possible air bag clock spring malfunction..this is a serious thing but this is a 2016 we traded in S 2011 Wrangler that had the same problem. 5 years later and still not fixed so I need an answer... the clock spring was replaced on the 2011 about 4 years ago but burned to the ground about 8/01/2016.

Horn does not honk when depressed or there may be a delay til the horn actually sounds. At times it does not even honk at all. Major safety issue. Please address. This occurs whether the vehicle is stationary or moving. Happens every single time. I have checked on forums and everyone has the same issue.

Roof leaks and soaks carpet on passenger side floor everytime it is parked in the rain or snow and causes windows to fog up because of moisture in the cockpit and creates a safety problem not being able to see in our cold Wisconsin climate, vehicle has been at dealer twice now for that problem and it has less than 2000 miles on it.

I have a 2016 Jeep Wrangler unlimited with 20,000 miles., today I was going up a hill stopped at a mailbox then started to take off and the motor stalled while in drive. It cased me to roll back about 3' befor I could hit the brake almost caused a accident. I then restarted the Jeep placed it back in drive and it wouldn't move! it acted like it was in neutral. I also tried reverse still wouldn't do nothing. So I rolled to a flat spot in the road check the trans fluid, it was good then turned it of checked the oil, it was good to. Then started it back up and put it in drive and it was working fine again!
