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 #2

Freelander 4WD

A/C unit is not adequate to cool car without being able to turn off reicrculation button, as per owner's manual reccomondations. Does not allow proper ventilation and could possibly cause driver fatigue during long haul operations due to lack of fresh air being introduced into the cabin. Also on hotter/sunny days you must keep fan turned up to a high level in order to gain any cooling affect thus causing noise fatigue. System is overall ineefective and has been verified by several owners on bbs's. have had system checked by dealer for proper operation and it checked out ok.
