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.

2002 Land Rover Discovery II Owner Comments

Discovery II 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 62,000 miles


Land Rover Discovery II front drive shafts will always fail catastrophically between 60,000 to 70,000 miles. Every Land Rover forum discusses this and the consensus is that Land Rover should have reported this to NHTSA as a safety issue. When they break the consequences include the shaft going into the passenger compartment or traveling at a high rate of speed into nearby cars. Every Discovery II on the road has these front shafts fail and the owners of the vehicles have never been warned of this extreme danger.
