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.

We were traveling about 35 mph when we had to make a sudden and hard stop as a car almost pulled out in front of us. The right front tire moved back about three inches and was rubbing against the tire well. The brakes were making a horrendous noise. We had to be towed to a repair shop. The right front control arm that supports the tire was corroded and rusted out to the point it collapsed and bent. We were lucky we weren't in a serious accident. If we had been traveling at highway speed I don't know what would have happened. It cost $426 to be repaired. The repair shop gave me the defective part so I could contact Land Rover as they said this never should have happened. I contacted Land Rover and emailed them pictures of the part. They said they couldn't investigate further without having the car shipped to the united kingdom. Can you believe that! I have the part and would be happy to send it to the NHTSA. I am sure there are other Freelanders out there being driven with this same problem and they are serious accidents just waiting to happen.
