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.

May 26, 2005 while driving on a city street in orlando Florida, the steering on my 2002 Freelander S failed. I had the car towed to the dealer in orlando. On May 27, 2005 I was informed by the chief landrover technician that the bolts holding the steering column on the left side had sheered off. In later discussion I was informed that this has happened before. On June 7 I was informed by the senior technician that he could not safely repair the vehicle. On June 9 I was informed by the supervisor at customer service Land Rover America that a regional techinical director would have to determine if it could be repaired. I had no control on the vehicle at the time of the incident. I had been on the Florida turnpike less than three hours prior to that in a rain storm avoiding semi tractor trailers. Had this occured at that time I would not be filing this report.
