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.

Have had multiple problems with vehicle with replacements needed for the following items: Sunroof assembly, brakes and rotors twice, coolant tank, coolant tank lid, intake manifold assembly, wiper switch, 2 vacuum hoses, window regulator, sunroof drain tubes and headliner. Now, despite maintaining the recommended service schedule, we are going to have to have the engine replaced at 67K miles. The coolant is leaking into the oil and after having the head gaskets replaced and a cooler part replaced, the dealer now believes that there is a crack in the sleeve. There apparently is a back order on replacement engines so I will have to cough up $$$ to keep the oil drained and coolant filled until one is available. Why should a $35,000 vehicle need an engine replaced at 67K miles?

Freelander 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 41,000 miles
: the contact stated the vehicle's brakes overheated. The ABS warning light illuminates to make the driver aware of the problem. When the brakes were pressed at normal speeds, there was a slight chirping noise. The vehicle was taken to a service dealer but the dealer could not replicate the problem.

When applying brakes at normal conditions ABS light came on intermittently, and there was extended stopping distance. Dealer stated braking system was defective but they could do nothing about it. Also, automatic transmission failed.
