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 #1

X-Type Sport 3.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission

We first noticed a small puddle of red liquid directly under the engine after it was parked in the garage overnight. We checked all reservoirs and all were full, so we took to mechanic for a check. Turns out, the leak is from the coolant system. A bad gasket was building up pressure while driving and then after it's parked, it releases that pressure leaving a small puddle of coolant on the ground. Mechanic said the water pump was damaged as well due to the build-up and release over and over and needed replacing. The thermostat housing also needed replacing as a result. Total cost of repairs was $808.43 after parts, labor, & tax, but an extended warranty paid $430.54 so we only paid $377.89.
