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.

Traveling South of columbus, oh on interstate, going between 55-65 mph. Car began to shake, sudden loud noise (as if tire blew or we hit an object) and we pulled to the side of the road as black smoke billowed up and into the car. Turned off vehicle and exited. Upon inspection the tires were fine. Called aaa and had car towed to nearest Land Rover dealer in dublin, oh. Next day we were told the drive shaft "came apart" and then damaged the transmision and catalytic converter pipe, along with doing extensive damage to the floor board. We were also told that we were "lucky" the car came to a safe stop. Our car was "totaled" as the damages quoted were as much as the car was worth, according to Land Rover dublin. They showed us the kbb price of $10,000 and the damage quote was $8,900. We had the car towed to a relative's home in pa. (it is closer than our home in tn).

While attempting to use the 2002 landrover Discovery II hill descent feature the gear shift mechanism came off in the consumer's hand. The vehicle had gone out of control while going down hill.
