Autoblog: Congress investigating Death Wobble

Searched the forum and didn't see this. Please delete if a repost but looks like congress is looking at this now:

The letter to NHTSA from the congressmen is dated yesterday, March 19, 2012. So, this is a brand new developement.

The minute I saw it I said to myself...."About damn time." This has been happening for years and is well documented and Chrysler says it's 'normal'...this is NOT normal with that amount of vibration.

Don't worry, I'm sure Chrysler will reimburse you for the cost.

I did too! Looks like we won't get to collect the .11 reimbursement after the lawyers get their cut.

All these people keep complaining about an inherent problem with all solid axle front vehicles and Jeep will start making the Jeep with independant front suspension



keep your vehicle maintained and if you upgrade, truly upgrade to a quality part you wont have problems!

"keep your vehicle maintained and if you upgrade, truly upgrade to a quality part you wont have problems!"

Issue is people want the cheapest fix possible is many situations. Me? I don't want the cheapest, but surely don't want the most expensive one either. I would rather fix it once and fix it right and not have to worry about it later again. I ain't made of money ya know!

But it's easier to get the government to do it for us. We already accept laws for our greater good. Pretty soon we will have laws telling us how we should wipe our a$$

This should read:
Jeep Wrangler "Death Wobble" prompts members of Congress to pander for votes.

1. Congress is the wrong department.
2. Nothing will come of it.
3. Yes, I know. I am cynical.

Sorry, but this is not why I work my @ss off to pay those congressional salaries. This country has a lot bigger problems than shaking Jeeps.
